Points and IMO

I am curious as to what correlation is there between the number of points for a problem and IMO level. For example, is an IMO level problem maybe 350 points for problem 1?

In the IMO, they ask you to prove things and proof problems are usually harder than the integer-answer problems we have here. In addition to that, proof problems often require a different skill-set and thought process. So it wouldn't be fair to compare proof problems with integer-answer problems.

That being said, sometimes problem number 1 is quite easy and doable if you can handle the harder problems here.

What do you mean by given? Do you mean by been to IMO and taken the test?

@Alex Segesta That's exactly what he meant.

Is there anything on this site that involves proof problems?

Are you new here? Welcome to Brilliant!

Notes (like the one you've made here) are the only way to discuss about proof problems. Here's a set of proof problems I made in the past. I was supposed to add more notes to it, but then for one reason or another that didn't happen.

Solutions discussions are also a good way to brush up your solution writing skills. Write as many solutions as you can and participate in the discussion.

@Mursalin Habib Pretty sure Alex isn't new, he was just inactive for a long time.

@Daniel Liu Yeah, I haven't been here in quite a while. Things appear to have changed.
