145 is a curious number, as 1! + 4! + 5! = 1 + 24 + 120 = 145.
Find the sum of all numbers which are equal to the sum of the factorial of their digits.
Note: as 1! = 1 and 2! = 2 are not sums they are not included.
open System.Collections.Generic // factorial function let factorial n = if (n = 0) then 1 else [1..n] |> List.reduce (fun acc x -> acc * x) // create a cache of sorts to help improve performance let factorials = new Dictionary<int, int>() let start = [0..9] |> List.iter (fun n -> factorials.Add(n, (factorial n))) // get the digits of a number into an array let getDigits (n:bigint) = n.ToString().ToCharArray() |> Array.map (fun c -> int(c.ToString())) // get the sum of the factorials of a number's digits let getDigitsToFactSum (n:bigint) = bigint(getDigits(n) |> Array.map (fun n -> factorials.[n]) |> Array.sum) // get the max sum achievable by a number of the given number of digits let upperBound (digits:int) = bigint(digits) * bigint(factorial 9) // find the last number of digits n, where the max sum achievable by the factorials of the // digits of a number of n digits is greater than the smallest number of n digits // any number with more than n digits do not need to be checked let digitsToCheck = let n = Seq.unfold (fun state -> Some(state, (state+1))) 1 |> Seq.filter (fun x -> (upperBound x).ToString().ToCharArray().Length < x) |> Seq.head n-1 // get the next number with the given number of digits let maxNumber digits = [1..digits] |> List.map (fun x -> 9I * pown 10I (x-1)) |> List.sum let answer = let max = maxNumber digitsToCheck [3I..max] |> List.filter (fun n -> n = getDigitsToFactSum n) |> List.sum
This solution is very similar to my solution for problem 30, with the main difference being that the sum is calculated using the factorials of the digits rather the fifth power.
I specialise in rapidly transitioning teams to serverless and building production-ready services on AWS.
Are you struggling with serverless or need guidance on best practices? Do you want someone to review your architecture and help you avoid costly mistakes down the line? Whatever the case, I’m here to help.
Check out my new course, Complete Guide to AWS Step Functions. In this course, we’ll cover everything you need to know to use AWS Step Functions service effectively. Including basic concepts, HTTP and event triggers, activities, callbacks, nested workflows, design patterns and best practices.
Here is a complete list of all my posts on serverless and AWS Lambda. In the meantime, here are a few of my most popular blog posts.
- Lambda optimization tip – enable HTTP keep-alive
- You are thinking about serverless costs all wrong
- Many faced threats to Serverless security
- We can do better than percentile latencies
- I’m afraid you’re thinking about AWS Lambda cold starts all wrong
- Yubl’s road to Serverless
- AWS Lambda – should you have few monolithic functions or many single-purposed functions?
- AWS Lambda – compare coldstart time with different languages, memory and code sizes
- Guys, we’re doing pagination wrong
