Overview: The Problem
Project Euler is a website that provides mathematically-oriented programming problems. There are many (over 500) and they are a rich source of profound mathematical insights.
I have been considering a writeup that goes deep into a particular problem, so why not do it with problem 1?
Problem 1 of Project Euler asks:
Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.
It is a pretty simple task - one of the first things covered in a decent programming course is the …
