Square but not cube

From Rosetta Code
Task
Square but not cube
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.
Task

Show the first 30 positive integers which are squares but not cubes of such integers.

Optionally, show also the first 3 positive integers which are both squares and cubes - and mark them as such.

ALGOL 68[edit]

Avoids computing cube roots.

BEGIN
# list the first 30 numbers that are squares but not cubes and also #
# show the numbers that are both squares and cubes #
INT count := 0;
INT c := 1;
INT c3 := 1;
FOR s WHILE count < 30 DO
INT sq = s * s;
WHILE c3 < sq DO
c +:= 1;
c3 := c * c * c
OD;
print( ( whole( sq, -5 ) ) );
IF c3 = sq THEN
# the square is also a cube #
print( ( " is also the cube of ", whole( c, -5 ) ) )
ELSE
# square only #
count +:= 1
FI;
print( ( newline ) )

Solution:

isSqrNotCubeofInt=: (*. -.)/@(= <.)@(2 3 %:/ ])
getN_Indicies=: adverb def '[ ({. I.) [ (] , [: u (i.200) + #@])^:(> +/)^:_ [email protected]]'

Example Use:

   I. isSqrNotCubeofInt i.1090           NB. If we know the upper limit required to get first 30
4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841 900 961 1024 1089
30 isSqrNotCubeofInt getN_Indicies 0 NB. otherwise iteratively build list until first 30 found
4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841 900 961 1024 1089

Alternative Solution:

Breaking up the solution above into smaller chunks with comments...

isInt=: = <.                                     NB. are numbers integers?
sqrcube=: 2 3 %:/ ] NB. table of 2nd and 3rd roots of y
isSqrNotCubeofInt=: (*. -.)/@[email protected] NB. is y the square but not cube of an integer?
 
getIdx=: {. I. NB. get indicies of first x ones in boolean y
 
process_more=: adverb def '] , [: u (i.200) + #@]' NB. process the next 200 indicies with u and append to y
notEnough=: > +/ NB. is left arg greater than sum of right arg
while=: conjunction def 'u^:v^:_' NB. repeat u while v is true
 
process_until_enough=: adverb def 'u process_more while notEnough u'

Example Use:

   30 ([ getIdx isSqrNotCubeofInt process_until_enough) 0
4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841

Lua[edit]

Calculating cube roots with x^(1/3) caused problems with floating-point 'dust' so the Newton-Raphson method is used instead.

function nthroot (x, n)
local r = 1
for i = 1, 16 do
r = (((n - 1) * r) + x / (r ^ (n - 1))) / n
end
return r
end
 
local i, count, sq, cbrt = 0, 0
while count < 30 do
i = i + 1
sq = i * i
-- The next line should say nthroot(sq, 3), right? But this works. Maths, eh?
cbrt = nthroot(i, 3)
if cbrt == math.floor(cbrt) then
print(sq .. " is square and cube")
else
print(sq)
count = count + 1
end
end
Output:

Perl[edit]

Hash[edit]

Use a hash to track state (and avoid floating-point math).

while ($cnt < 30) {
$n++;
$h{$n**2}++;
$h{$n**3}--;
$cnt++ if $h{$n**2} > 0;
}
 
print "First 30 positive integers that are a square but not a cube:\n";
print "$_ " for sort { $a <=> $b } grep { $h{$_} == 1 } keys %h;
 
print "\n\nFirst 3 positive integers that are both a square and a cube:\n";
print "$_ " for sort { $a <=> $b } grep { $h{$_} == 0 } keys %h;
Output:
First 30 positive integers that are a square but not a cube:
4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841 900 961 1024 1089

First 3 positive integers that are both a square and a cube:
1 64 729

Generators[edit]

A more general approach involving generators/closures to implement 'lazy' lists as in the Perl 6 example. Using ideas and code from the very similar Generator exponential task. Output is the same as previous.

# return an anonymous subroutine that generates stream of specified powers
sub gen_pow {
my $m = shift;
my $e = 1;
return sub { return $e++ ** $m; };
}
 
# return an anonymous subroutine generator that filters output from supplied generators g1 and g2
sub gen_filter {
my($g1, $g2) = @_;
my $v1;
my $v2 = $g2->();
return sub {
while (1) {
$v1 = $g1->();
$v2 = $g2->() while $v1 > $v2;
return $v1 unless $v1 == $v2;
}
};
}
 
my $pow2 = gen_pow(2);
my $pow3 = gen_pow(3);
my $squares_without_cubes = gen_filter($pow2, $pow3);
print "First 30 positive integers that are a square but not a cube:\n";
print $squares_without_cubes->() . ' ' for 1..30;
 
my $pow6 = gen_pow(6);
print "\n\nFirst 3 positive integers that are both a square and a cube:\n";
print $pow6->() . ' ' for 1..3;

Perl 6[edit]

my @square-and-cube = map { .}, 1..Inf;
 
my @square-but-not-cube = (1..Inf).map({ .² }).grep({ $_@square-and-cube[^@square-and-cube.first: * > $_, :k]});
 
put "First 30 positive integers that are a square but not a cube: \n", @square-but-not-cube[^30];
 
put "\nFirst 15 positive integers that are both a square and a cube: \n", @square-and-cube[^15];
Output:
First 30 positive integers that are a square but not a cube: 
4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841 900 961 1024 1089

Racket[edit]

Using a generator it _is_ possible to print the cubes in-line, but I've chosen to show reusing the generator / for / sequence interaction:

#lang racket
(require racket/generator)
 
;; generates values:
;; next square
;; cube-root if cube, #f otherwise
(define (make-^2-but-not-^3-generator)
(generator
()
(let loop ((s 1) (c 1))
(let ((s^2 (sqr s)) (c^3 (* c c c)))
(yield s^2 (and (= s^2 c^3) c))
(loop (add1 s) (+ c (if (>= s^2 c^3) 1 0)))))))
 
(for/list ((x (in-range 1 31))
((s^2 _) (sequence-filter (λ (_ c) (not c)) (in-producer (make-^2-but-not-^3-generator)))))
s^2)
 
(for ((x (in-range 1 4))
((s^2 c) (sequence-filter (λ (s^2 c) c) (in-producer (make-^2-but-not-^3-generator)))))
(printf "~a: ~a is also ~a^3~%" x s^2 c))
Output:
'(4 9 16 25 36 49 81 100 121 144 169 196 225 256 289 324 361 400 441 484 529 576 625 676 784 841 900 961 1024 1089)
1: 1 is also 1^3
2: 64 is also 4^3
3: 729 is also 9^3
