Project Euler #48

leave a comment »

The problem states Find the last ten digits of 11 + 22 + … + 10001000.

Answer: 9110846700

Solution: I started with C# built-in data types but soon I realized that I was exceeding the max value for the data types. Then I tried Microsoft.FSharp.Math.BigInt (FSharp.Core.dll) and was pretty straight forward.

var lOutput = Enumerable .Range(1, 1000) .Aggregate(BigInt.Zero, (pX, pY) => pX + BigInt.Pow(new BigInt(pY), new BigInt(pY))); var lAnswer = lOutput % BigInt.Pow(new BigInt(10), new BigInt(10));

Time: 465 ms
