re: Divide and conquer (spoiler) & a challenge | Comment 2 of 3 |
(In reply to Divide and conquer (spoiler) by Steve Herman)

Great solution, however I was hoping someone would come up with an elegantly simple method that can be done "in one's head", along the lines of the divisible by 3 and/or 9 that most of us know.  I grew up in the era before PCs and calculators, and these rules were extremely useful, almost necessary, then.

Who's up to the challenge?
