- Filename: Euler001.java

If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23.

Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.

If you want, you can view this problem at Project Euler instead.

Assignments turned in *without* these things will not receive
any points.

- After your program is done and working, add a comment at the top containing the final answer. If your program does not produce the correct answer in a reasonable amount of time, you will not receive points for this assignment.

- "Project Euler"? What's up with that?
- Project Euler is a site of challenging math-based problems. The easiest problems (like this one!) have been solved by more than 100,000 people. The most difficult (ex: The Silver Dollar Game) have been solved by only about one hundred people worldwide.
- How do I know if my solution is correct?
- The easiest way is to create an account on the Project Euler website. Then you can check your answers and keep track of your progress.
- There are hundreds of Project Euler problems but you only have a few in the assignment list. Will I get points for solving the others?
- Of course. When you turn in a correct solution I will determine a fair number of points for it.
- How many Project Euler problems have you solved, Mr. Mitchell?
- As of November 2012 I have solved 47 problems (1-45, 48 & 67). That puts me in the top 9% of participants on the site.
