Each of these problems is in two halves:

a) Understanding the mathematics behind the question

b) Writing the code.

Which half are you halfing (oops sorry, *having*) trouble with? If

(a), this isn't a programming question at all - search the web for

information on the problem, as these are well-known challenges. If

(b), you'll need to post your code to get any sort of useful help - we

aren't mindreaders, though we do try to look that way sometimes!

Either way, check this out:
