The Countdown Problem

Course subject(s) Module 10. The Countdown Problem

In this chapter we show how Haskell can be used to solve the countdown problem, a numbers game in which the aim is to construct numeric expressions satisfying certain constraints. We start by formalising the rules of the problem in Haskell, and then present a simple but inefficient program that solves the problem, whose efficiency is then improved in two stages
