Problem 118: Pandigital prime sets
(see projecteuler.net/problem=118)
Using all of the digits 1 through 9 and concatenating them freely to form decimal integers, different sets can be formed.
Interestingly with the set {2,5,47,89,631}, all of the elements belonging to it are prime.
How many distinct sets containing each of the digits one through nine exactly once contain only prime elements?
My Algorithm
First, I create a prime sieve for all prime numbers up to 100000000.
My isPrime
can handle larger number, too, but has to revert to trial division (which is much, much slower).
The core routine is search
which takes a vector digits
and looks at all digits starting at position firstPos
.
It appends all digits step-by-step to a local variable current
and checks whether it is prime.
If yes, then the routine appends that prime number to merged
and calls itself recursively.
If there are no more digits left in digits
(that means firstPos == digits.size()
) then the numbers in merged
are a valid solution.
It took me some time to figure out that all numbers in merged
must be in ascending order to avoid finding the same solution multiple times.
Modifications by HackerRank
You are given a certain set of digits and have to find the sum of all solutions.
Update November 2017: Kevin McShane helped me to fix a bug in my "premature optimization" in line 114 - now the code solves all test cases.
Note
100,000,000 seems to be the "sweet spot" for my prime sieve. Higher values increase the time needed to fill the sieve significantly,
while lower values lead to a slower isPrime
(because it has to use trial division more often).
Interactive test
You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho "1 12345" | ./118
Output:
Note: the original problem's input 987654321
cannot be entered
because just copying results is a soft skill reserved for idiots.
(this interactive test is still under development, computations will be aborted after one second)
My code
… was written in C++11 and can be compiled with G++, Clang++, Visual C++. You can download it, too.
The code contains #ifdef
s to switch between the original problem and the Hackerrank version.
Enable #ifdef ORIGINAL
to produce the result for the original problem (default setting for most problems).

Benchmark
The correct solution to the original Project Euler problem was found in 0.23 seconds on an Intel® Core™ i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz.
Peak memory usage was about 11 MByte.
(compiled for x86_64 / Linux, GCC flags: -O3 -march=native -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti -std=gnu++11 -DORIGINAL

See here for a comparison of all solutions.
Note: interactive tests run on a weaker (=slower) computer. Some interactive tests are compiled without -DORIGINAL

November 10, 2017 fixed bug which prevented me from getting 100% on Hackerrank (line 114, thx to Kevin McShane)
Hackerrank
see https://www.hackerrank.com/contests/projecteuler/challenges/euler118
My code solves 12 out of 12 test cases (score: 100%)
Difficulty
Project Euler ranks this problem at 45% (out of 100%).
Hackerrank describes this problem as hard.
Note:
Hackerrank has strict execution time limits (typically 2 seconds for C++ code) and often a much wider input range than the original problem.
In my opinion, Hackerrank's modified problems are usually a lot harder to solve. As a rule thumb: brute-force is rarely an option.
