Thread for Suggesting Open Problems

This thread is for suggesting open problem to solve. Some general guidelines

a.) The problem should be understandable by a wide audience, ideally at a pre-calculus level. (Note calculus is still fine as a solving approach, if that becomes important.)

b.) Very famous problems are not recommended -- pick something that is simpler that we have a chance at approaching. If you are interested in a famous problem, pick an open problem that is related.

c.) The open problem can be along the lines of "categorize everything of type X" or "a proof is known for Y, but can we find a better one?"
