# Project Euler #5: Smallest multiple – When BruteForce Actually Works!

Before I start talking about problem #5 from project Euler, allow me to tell you a brief story about myself and where I stand today. You see, a few days ago I decided to brush up on my knowledge of algorithms and data structures before I started learning some more “advanced” concepts. I heard that HackerRank is a pretty good site to work on so I decided to do their *Warm-up* problems and complete their first quest for the* “Algorithms I*” badge.

It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be and some of the problems involving dynamic programming reminded me of just how much I’ve fallen behind on *“real”* programming. And then I discovered **Project Euler **and hours started to pass me by as I read through the various challenges. Continue…
