Mathathon 2021

If you don't know what the Mathathon is, its a contest I started on Brilliant.org, where I post Math and Logic problems of varying difficulty, and score the solution that the participants create. Highest score wins. You can check my Profile for my posts on the Mathathon 2020.

So, the last Mathathon was held in the second half of 2020, somewhere around July-August I reckon, but this time, I'm gonna hold it in the March-April period because I will be very busy after then (Busy studying, surely not playing games).

I have changed up some things, and this Mathathon will be better planned than the last one.


MATHATHON 2021\large \text{MATHATHON 2021}

The Mathathon 2020 was a contest where I post a series of problems and score the solutions. The Mathathon 2021 is the same, except we have different rules.

I shall add the number of problems and the posting scheldule below later (coz its a draft), and you can solve them at anytime you want.

(I dunno what to do now, I am really bad at this hosting thing...)

Your solution will be graded as follows -

Accuracy - 1010 points

Readability - 1010 points

Ingenuity - 1010 points

Bringing us to a total of 3030 points. (Bonus points if you say you love the Dream SMP!)

(I was kidding, if you didn't get it...)

(Now, the last time I had included time zones and Latex and all that sh*t, and in retrospect, that was a very stupid idea, so this time, I will try to be a more...um...a person with more IQ, coz I'm big-brained, yeah...)

Accuracy is basically correctness. Whether every calculation, assumption, or the final answer is correct.

Readability is neatness and clarity. Your solution must be clear and easily understandable, organized, not a clutter of numbers if you want to score here. Latex, images and GIF's are all included in this part. Unnecessary images, Latex or GIF's will not be awarded more points.

Ingenuity is your method of solving the problem. For this, my friends and I (Yes, I have friends...) will each make a solution for the problem. The most used solution will be counted as the most common solution, so if your solution sways away from the common solution, you score here. Your solution should make people go 'Aha!' or 'Clever trick!' to score here.

My friends are all smart, and I've told them about this, so they're not messing around and are taking this seriously. No bias will be allowed in this contest.

(I'm an anti-social person, so I've got 55 friends, don't judge.)


Problem schedule :

Problems 1,2,31, 2, 3 and 44 will be released on 22nd22nd March and will be of easy difficulty.

Problems 5,6,75, 6, 7 and 88 will be released on 24th24th March and will be of medium difficulty.

Problems 99 and 1010 will be released on 26th26th March and will be of hard difficulty.

All solutions posted on or before April 1st1st will be considered. I will send out the results on April 2nd2nd.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Since only 25 People can participate, i would be very thankful if you and your friends could post the Problems after the Mathoton has taken place. Thank you for considering my suggestion.

All problems posted can be solved by everyone, it will all be in Percy's homepage, but only those who are in Mathathon can submit solutions to be graded, you can attempt all the problems if you want, but it would be preferable if you put down your solution after 2nd April (25 solutions is itself a huge number to grade, extra solutions coming in might just increase the time spent in searching for the solutions to be graded) , and by the way your English is better than mine :)

\(\dfrac{\text{numerator sentence}}{\text{denominator sentence}}\) -> Copy this code and use it :)

what is the difference between \frac and \dfrac?

Atin Gupta - 4 months, 2 weeks ago

Log in to reply

@Atin Gupta \dfrac is just a short way of writing \displaystyle\frac which makes the styling a bit better for the fraction

12\frac{1}{2} This is \frac

12\dfrac{1}{2} This is \dfrac
