Problem 2910. Mersenne Primes vs. All Primes
I don't know if it's a lot of work but it could be a good idea to add a Prime Numbers group 2 with more difficult problems. I think about beautiful Ned's problems (primes ladders, Longest prime diagonal, Twins in a window ...).
Nice one. I found a solution of size 127. And I have the impression it's already quite condensed. It's a mystery to me how one can write a solution of size 26. Can anybody give me a hint on how to do so?
test cases are wrong.
please be more serious to accept problems.
it doesn't suit mathworks:(
Test cases have been verified and they are indeed correct. What makes you think so that they are wrong?
Does all the leading solutions with the size below 10, use this ? Nice idea, but this doesn't improve the problem solving skills.
My logic is right but test cases are very hude numbers.... failed to evaluate...
You need to learn to avoid loops. You can use isprime on an array. In any case, your logic is wrong. You never test that b is prime.
As Guillaume pointed out, this solution doesn't test if the numbers in b are Mersenne primes, simply if they're less than 2^n-1, which is not the right criterion. Further, you concatenate the index of the loop (j, which goes from 1 to 1...), rather than a Mersenne prime to b.
Also, this problem is designed, as many of James's problems are, to fail by timeout unless vectorized solutions are used.
i have corrected the logic but plz can u tell me smthing about vectorized solutions...
u can also mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
