Max Math Problem

April 6, 2011 | 5:06 am

I have a set of ten numbers and I want to know all the possible sums of each other are. I need to know what n1 + n2 is and what n1 + n3 is up to n10, but also what n1+n2+n3 is and what n1+n2+n4 is etc…

ive been thinking of it as kind of a binary addition:
1000000000
0100000000
1100000000
0010000000
and so forth…

but it may just be too late after a long day but I’m having some real trouble coming up with a practical way to do this… patching the logic for it would be mind numbing, and I don’t know of any algorithms to do this… any thoughts?

Morning jvkr!

Thanks for the quick reply. @ work right now so I was only able to get a runtime look at the patch, but it seem to work just like i need, and elegantly with few objects :)

Once I can unlock the patch I just would need to check out the order of the calculations so I can sort/categorize them.

Thanks again!
