Re: calculation of (a,b,c,d) in 34!

I'm not sure how you could do it without modulo and why you thought you should not use it.

Re: calculation of (a,b,c,d) in 34!

Because if I were going to use computational means why should I just use them half way?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

How is DP half way?

And even if it is, I'd trump doing only half of it (?) computationaly if it gets me the result faster.

First you must tell me what DP stands for.

Dynamic programming. Which is basically your first method in this thread.

What method? I do not think I had a method.

Re: calculation of (a,b,c,d) in 34!

Ah, wait. Wrong thread. Post #28 is also in the wrong thread. Sorry.

Anyway, by looking at the problem, I'd say it is a book problem, which probably means that it has a non-computational solution, so, I do not know why you think this one has to be done computationally at all.

I do not think so.

Do not think what?

That it would be necessary to do a computation on it. I agree that it probably has some method.
