## School assignment help

 Hello! Can anybody point me to a right way here? I have those exercises in haskell that i cannot do, because haskell is so much different from other languages that i use. I have read so much from different manuals but i do not understand haskell enough yet. First exercise: I must find a shorter list. Here's how i did that, but my teacher said that it is unefficient way to do it. getShorter :: [a] -> [a] -> [a] getShorter xs ys | length xs <= length ys = xs                        | otherwise                  = ys How do i do it effective, so that i only check as many elements from lists as many are in the shortest list? Second exercise: Second exercise also need an effective answer: I have to remove any occurances of certain number from list and give the number of how many times that number was removed. Unefficient version: remCount :: Int -> [Int] -> (Int,[Int]) remCount n xs = (length xs - length ys, ys)        where ys = [ x | x <- xs, x /= n] Exercise three: moneyBack :: Int -> [(Int,Int)] I must print out all pairs of bank notes and (bank notes, how many) which salesman would give me back when he/she has to give me like 456 back. moneyBack 0        ==>   [] moneyBack 10      ==>   [(10,1)] moneyBack 123     ==>   [(100,1),(10,2),(2,1),(1,1)] moneyBack 5326   ==>   [(500,10),(100,3),(25,1),(1,1)] If anybody could point me in a right direction that would be great. Haskell seems very cool because the code is usually really short, but i just need a start. I need more examples than i can find from google (maybe i'm not using the right keywords). Thanks.

## Re: School assignment help

 Hi This is the place for questions specifically about the Hugs system - for general Haskell help you will get a much larger audience on haskell-cafe -AT- haskell.org - I suggest reposting this email to there. There is a page about how to ask for homework help on the Haskell wiki: http://haskell.org/haskellwiki/Homework_helpThanks Neil On 10/24/07, Urmastaag <[hidden email]> wrote: > > Hello! > > Can anybody point me to a right way here? > I have those exercises in haskell that i cannot do, because haskell is so > much different from other languages that i use.
