## Project Euler UMBC: Solve Math Problems FOR SCIENCE!!

posted over 11 years ago

Hey everybody,

So I wanted to introduce a new group, where we will be solving math problems by making programs. It doesn't matter what your programming skills are like: whether you're a pro or a beginner! If you're willing to learn or are willing to teach others, this group is for you and hopefully we can have some fun!

Project Euler consists of a series of math problems that for the most part require you to use programming languages (Java, Python, Matlab, C, etc.) to solve them.

You can read more about it here.

Once the group is approved, we will post 1 problem per week- giving you 7 days to solve it. The point of this group is to help people solve these problems and share code for other people to see and learn from.

Also, to add a little bit of spice: he/she who hath the fastest code WINNETH!!

"If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23.

Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000."
