Recently I found a website called Project Euler. It is a website, which has a series of problems which can be solved using a mix of math and programming. I like both math and programming, so I really do enjoys the problems. I have only solved a fraction of the problems, but I have already touched many branches of mathematics I usually don’t dabble much in.

It is stated that the problems should be solvable in under one minute once a program has been written. Writing the programs might takes several hours though, and this is the fun challenge is.

In this series of posts, I will gives a run through, and a solution methodology for solving some of the problems (the ones I have solved…), but I will in each case elaborate a bit more on it, than just finding a solution.

The code for these problems will be written in C#, and I wont provide the full code, only the useful snippets. I will use this first blog post on the subject to give you a bit of the structure around the interesting code.
