 Zakir Husain $6\times10^7+10^8$ $2\times10^8$

Note :

• If someone still can't complete his work then he can voluntarily ask for reduction, his work then will be transferred to me (some of it).

• If any of you will complete your work before the end of the week and wanted more then you can voluntarily ask for it.

• If you are having any doubts related to this then clear it here.

• Akela Chana, and Jeff Giff are requested to complete their previous work and submit it

• If you also want to participate (you are not a participant right now) then you can register your name for coming week (week $3$) and this week also.

• If you know a better programming language then kindly suggest.

• For more information see On Most common number of prime factor!.

• In python $a^b$ is written as :  a**b  So don't write it in this format - ''a^b'' as it will not work properly. See this for more information.

• Hopefully, we will cross $2\times10^8$ this week (if everyone do their work).

• Analysis till $2\times10^8$ will be there on the Analysis Page soon! Note by Zakir Husain

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

@Yajat Shamji, will you also join?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

No. However I like these posts! Keep it up!

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

@Zakir Husain - Can I participate? If yes, please tell me what to do exactly :)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Yes, Some information is given here. Will you start from today itself?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Yes I understood what we are trying to do, but how can i help? @Zakir Husain

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

You just have to run the program (you can see it in this discussion) with the values of $l,m$ special for you (it is different for different participants)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

So what's my L M? @Zakir Husain

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

 @Percy Jackson $l=8\times10^7+10^8$ $9\times10^7+10^8$
It might take long time to run it, so if you don't have to take that much long (if your computer is just that slow), you can break it into pieces so that each piece take smaller time like this :
 $l=8\times10^7+10^8$ $5\times10^6+8\times10^7+10^8$ $l=5\times10^6+8\times10^7+10^8$ $9\times10^7+10^8$

Don't run in the coding environment of brilliant. It will not work. Use python IDLE or any other software

@Percy Jackson - also try to send the input with the output, it will make my work easier

@Zakir Husain actually my computer is too laggy and that's why it can't work for much time and so can't evaluate time taking codes. I am just searching a code so that my computer can do the work in less time. I'll require just 3-5 days. Hope you understand. :)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Ok you can, but you can also break the work in small pieces so that each part will take small amount of time.

@Zakir Husain, I think I am free for 5-10 minutes just now, just tell me my l and m values. I will participate at least this week. My exams are postponed till 10th, so this week I can do.

@Percy Jackson , are you participating ?

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Maybe not, I have my exams in 2 days, sorry :)

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

@Zakir Husain Sir, my online classes of FIITJEE and school have both started and my schedule is becoming very hectic because I also need to get time for self studies. Also, my laptop is unable to evaluate your code because of the reason I stated. So, can you please remove me from the participants sir? I won't be able to give the output.

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Okay, now you are removed

- 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Do you need someone to run the missing intervals from last week? I can if you want.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Yes, I was waiting for someone to ask for it. Thanks

- 1 month, 1 week ago

No problem. Just send me the inputs.

@Zakir Husain forgive me Sir, I am not able to complete given task. I am extremely sorry. Please cancel my participation.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Don't worry your work is already completed, if you want you can participate in the next week, your choice.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Sorry for being late @Zakir Husain

Here is the input: Here is the output: - 1 month, 1 week ago

$\large{Announcement : }$ Week $3$ will be announced tomorrow morning (Indian Timing) it will go until $30$ August, $2019$. Sorry to all, for late announcement.

- 1 month ago

$\large{Announcement : }$ Week $3$ can't be announced today as I'll not be free for this. If you are interested to have more work then you may ask for it.

- 1 month, 1 week ago

Just send me any intervals you want done @Zakir Husain. Each one takes me about 10 minutes, so they're not a big deal.
