Yes, I sent them a second email telling of my mistake on problem #15, 1997.
mathsyperson is right, I'm in my late 30's.
I simply was trying out some of the problems I found on the internet at the
forementioned address in post #2 of this thread.

I'd guess not. The Cayley contest is for Year 10 people, and I seem to remember John E. Franklin being a considerable amount older. Sorry if I'm wrong, John.

Just curious are you taking the Cayley Contest by any chance since you are interested enough to try some of the problem? John E. Franklin

What fun, John! So they will get two emails now?

Some nice questions in there.

I just looked into old Cayley Contests and found that 1997 problem #15 had all four multiple choice answers incorrect, so I sent Waterloo an email.

Woops, I made a mistake, I assumed the length of the integer was all zeros except for the
first digit, but actually their solution is right.  Oops.

Will anyone here be writing the Cayley Contest for mathematics in the February of 2006?
