Project Euler using Scala: Problem #1

In this last post I gave a short introduction to Scala. In this article, I will show you the strength of Scala for solving one of the mathematical problems posted on Project Euler. The problem description is as follows:

Multiples of 3 and 5

If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23. Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.

I will first show you a naive approach and then I will show you a better approach.
