Small Basic Monthly Challenges - April 2018

Big thanks to LitDev for hosting our monthly challenges!

These challenges are intended for people who are learning to program for the first time or for those returning to programming who want to start using Small Basic.  Some will be easy, some will be hard - but they will all make you think, and more importantly be GREAT FUN!

Please post your solutions / partial solutions / questions / feedback etc. into this thread that will remain 'sticky' for the month.  The only rule is that your solution must use standard Small Basic methods (no extensions).

Post your solutions here:


It would be good if people could post their problems with these challenges so that a discussion can start so that everyone can learn from each other.

We may extend these challenges over into a second month if solutions and questions are still coming in.

Graphics Challenge

Draw a picture of a mountain scene, maybe some clouds, trees, snow or a lake in the view.

Maths Challenge

Write a program to calculate the numbers less than 1000 that are divisible, by exactly 3 different prime numbers.  How many can you get.

e.g. 2*3*5 = 30, 7*11*5=385

  • every vowel colored red, or
  • the first and last letter of each word colored blue
