    ...

    I was thinking, what would be wrong with making the 200 digit number 200-1 digit numbers and then applying math to those digits... what math did you want to do anyhow? Now besides the problems that I am gonna get hoarded(sp?) with... how long would it take for those 200 ints to get multiplied by a 4 digit number? Assuming that you just have to multiply and not add. That would be 800 multiplyings... wouldnt it?

    And on the same page is a link to the factorial of 200: http://www.rsasecurity.com/rsalabs/node.asp?id=2879. 200 > 155.

    Wow - 4 year bump - that must be a new record!
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    ahahaha, and I just read through the whole thread until I read Salem's post and looked at the dates.

    Wow...this thread has survived two bumps and still hasn't been locked down. What's next...void main?
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
