Project Euler: Problem 1

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

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 decided on a quick and simple brute force approach. There are clearly many more efficient ways of doing this, however the code below solves the problem in reasonable time.

The timings were taken on a Genuine Intel(R) CPU U1400  @ 1.20GHz with 1GB RAM.

I have recently started playing with Project Euler.

It involves some fun coding to solve simple and complex problems.

There are currently about 152 problems.

I will be blogging the solutions, with the actual answers in the extended part of my posts, so if you don’t want to see the code, don’t look :-)
