    Problem marathon!

    I am a math geek and I love doing math. Problem-solving math that is. Go to artofproblemsolving.com for more info. I also love computers. So, I thought how about a marathon for programming problems? I'm talking about mathematics based problems not projects like making a program to transfer files over a network. Solve the problems using C. Post the code here and if you solve a problem, you have to supply a new one. It'd be fun if we would gradually increase in difficulty.

    A person will be best friends with another person if their SSN's give the same mod 47 residues (for this problem SSN's will be only 6 digits). Write a program that takes in 12 digit numbers which consist 6 digits of one person and 6 digits of another and it has to output whether the two people will be best friends or not.

    Ok, I didn't get this? But ain't this what the whole forum is about, solving and helping with problems o.O?

    Its also about solving problems, not necessarily people's problems.

    Ok, this time I surely got lost... This forum ain't a therapy forum or let-it-off-your-chest forum, you know that right?

    So, I thought how about a marathon for programming problems?
    the contest board may probably be more appropriate.

    What i'm trying to say is that solving programming problems *might* just be good for you.
