: Outch! Just looking at your code tired me out: when you gonna switch to Ubasic?
: My code is about 20% of yours.
: I wrote a looper, keeping the 15 restricted to the last 5 numbers,
: calculating the 15th (120 - 1to14). what does this mean?
: Also programmed these restrictions:
: - 2 consecutives side by side possible only once why?
: - no doubles side by side (like 3,6) why?
: This is kinda interesting; noticed from the results;
: labelling the 15 balls from a to o:
: (a at top, o bottom right corner) and looking at
: "6ball triangles" like a-b-c-d-e-f or b-d-e-g-h-i,
: the top number always equal the 2 bottom corner
: difference; like d=m-k.
: That's in every case EXCEPT the f-i-j-m-n-o triangle.
Yes, interesting; I wonder why. Even more interesting: I wonder if this could be solved analytically, rather than by brute force.
I figured yours would be shorter. Let me see what it looks like.
