# Project Euler: Problem 8

https://projecteuler.net/problem=8

The four adjacent digits in the 1000-digit number that have the greatest product are 9 × 9 × 8 × 9 = 5832.

(see the number below)

Find the thirteen adjacent digits in the 1000-digit number that have the greatest product. What is the value of this product?

First, I replaced all the \n's in d1000 with a space to have just a string of digits

``````

In :

d1000_new = d1000.replace('\n', '')

``````

Then, I appended each integer value in d1000_new to a new list

``````

In :

lst = []
for i in d1000_new:
lst.append(int(i))

``````

Then I made this list into an array

``````

In :

a = np.array(lst)

``````

I started the main code by defining the maximum product as zero, and then a for loop that looped through all the digits in the list of digits. Using an if statement, I set a bound so no groups of thirteen would attempted to be made where no values would be found(like near the end of the number). I used np.prod to calculate the product of all thirteen digit groups using array slicing. A final if statement goes through the products as they're created, and if they're larger than the maximum the previous maximum product, then that will be the new maximum product. Finally, I print the max product.

``````

In :

maximum_prod = 0
for n in range(0, len(a)+1):
if n <= (len(a) - 12):
prod = np.prod(a[n:n+13])
if prod > maximum_prod:
maximum_prod = prod
print(maximum)
