Triangle, pentagonal, and hexagonal numbers are generated by the following formulae:
It can be verified that T285 = P165 = H143 = 40755.
Find the next triangle number that is also pentagonal and hexagonal.
let naturalNumbers n = Seq.unfold (fun state -> Some(state, state + 1I)) n // define the function T, P and H let T n = n * (n + 1I) / 2I let P n = n * (3I * n - 1I) / 2I let H n = n * (2I * n - 1I) // define the sequences for each function from the point the brief left off at let TSeq = naturalNumbers 285I |> Seq.map T let PSeq = naturalNumbers 165I |> Seq.map P let HSeq = naturalNumbers 143I |> Seq.map H let answer = HSeq |> Seq.skip 1 |> Seq.filter (fun h -> PSeq |> Seq.takeWhile (fun p -> p <= h) |> Seq.exists (fun p -> p = h)) |> Seq.filter (fun h -> TSeq |> Seq.takeWhile (fun t -> t <= h) |> Seq.exists (fun t -> t = h)) |> Seq.head
I’m an AWS Serverless Hero and the author of Production-Ready Serverless. I have run production workload at scale in AWS for nearly 10 years and I have been an architect or principal engineer with a variety of industries ranging from banking, e-commerce, sports streaming to mobile gaming. I currently work as an independent consultant focused on AWS and serverless.
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
