Problem 111: Primes with runs
(see projecteuler.net/problem=111)
Considering 4-digit primes containing repeated digits it is clear that they cannot all be the same:
1111 is divisible by 11, 2222 is divisible by 22, and so on.
But there are nine 4-digit primes containing three ones:
1117, 1151, 1171, 1181, 1511, 1811, 2111, 4111, 8111
We shall say that M(n, d) represents the maximum number of repeated digits for an n-digit prime where d is the repeated digit,
N(n, d) represents the number of such primes, and S(n, d) represents the sum of these primes.
So M(4, 1) = 3 is the maximum number of repeated digits for a 4-digit prime where one is the repeated digit,
there are N(4, 1) = 9 such primes, and the sum of these primes is S(4, 1) = 22275.
It turns out that for d = 0, it is only possible to have M(4, 0) = 2 repeated digits, but there are N(4, 0) = 13 such cases.
In the same way we obtain the following results for 4-digit primes.
Digit dM(4,d)N(4,d)S(4,d)
021367061
13922275
2312221
331246214
4328888
5315557
6316661
73957863
8318887
93748073
For d = 0 to 9, the sum of all S(4, d) is 273700.
Find the sum of all S(10, d).
My Algorithm
search
iterates through all numbers and calls isPrime
to figure out whether it's a prime number.
There are a few gotchas:
1. While iterating, I create all possible strings. They may contain leading zeros, which are not allowed.
2. Add numbers into the sequence of repeated digits only if the number's digits are in non-decreasing order: 125 is okay, 122 is okay, 121 isn't.
Modifications by HackerRank
I should analyze numbers with up to 40 digits (instead of 10). My code is too slow to handle anything with more than 12 digits.
Even worse, my routines can't process numbers exceeding 64 bits (which is about 19 digits).
Interactive test
You can submit your own input to my program and it will be instantly processed at my server:
This is equivalent toecho 4 | ./111
Output:
Note: the original problem's input 10
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. Or just jump to my GitHub repository.
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).

Hackerrank
see https://www.hackerrank.com/contests/projecteuler/challenges/euler111
My code solves 1 out of 20 test cases (score: 0%)
I failed 0 test cases due to wrong answers and 19 because of timeouts
Difficulty
Project Euler ranks this problem at 45% (out of 100%).
Hackerrank describes this problem as easy.
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.
