Test suite

Solution

Given a number, find the sum of all the unique multiples of particular numbers up to but not including that number.

If we list all the natural numbers below 20 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 15, and 18.

The sum of these multiples is 78.

For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

To run the test suite, execute the following command:

```
stack test
```

```
No .cabal file found in directory
```

You are probably running an old stack version and need to upgrade it.

```
No compiler found, expected minor version match with...
Try running "stack setup" to install the correct GHC...
```

Just do as it says and it will download and install the correct compiler version:

```
stack setup
```

If you want to play with your solution in GHCi, just run the command:

```
stack ghci
```

The exercism/haskell repository on GitHub is the home for all of the Haskell exercises.

If you have feedback about an exercise, or want to help implementing a new one, head over there and create an issue. We'll do our best to help you!

A variation on Problem 1 at Project Euler http://projecteuler.net/problem=1

It's possible to submit an incomplete solution so you can see how others have completed the exercise.

A huge amount can be learned from reading other peopleâ€™s code. This is why we wanted to give exercism users the option of making their solutions public.

Here are some questions to help you reflect on this solution and learn the most from it.

- What compromises have been made?
- Are there new concepts here that you could read more about to improve your understanding?
