# Turing Machines

Numbers are all In this post, we examine two examples set out in the classic paper by Turing. The first problem is to report the $n^{th}$ binary digit of 1⁄3. The second problem is to report the $n^{th}$ binary digit of $\sqrt{2}$. The 1936 paper On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproble describes two machines to perform the tasks. In this post, we give in Haskell two programs for the same.
