Will this sentience take over humanity? Or will it help us reach a Utopian era? It’s definitely not a binary question. But, one of the less commonly asked questions (and perhaps rightly so) is “Was this built and founded with the right virtues?”.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been compiling some of the recurring procedures I had used to solve the first 50 problems of Project Euler. While solving these math problems, I needed to find the most efficient method to get the solution. The underlying idea to solve most these are the same and it is pretty simple. But as you proceed, the simple method you had used earlier will take a really long time to produce an answer.
