Merry Christmas everyone!
It’s been a long time since I wrote a post, but I’ve been very busy coding, and I could only muster some posts for Stacktrace, so express all your Christmas-y goodness and pardon me
The first problem is quite simple:
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.
I will not try to give you the clever solution since this problem is quite simple, and the brute force solutions works fine
-module(p1). -export([sum_mul/1]). sum_mul([H|T]) -> valid(H) + sum_mul(T); sum_mul() -> 0. valid(H) when H rem 3 =:= 0; H rem 5 =:= 0 -> H; valid(H) -> 0.
To get the solution just call _sum_mul(lists:seq(1,999))_.
Have a Merry Erlang Christmas!
