mathcounts/amc problems1. Maria normally spends half an hour driving to work. When her average speed is ten miles per hour slower than usual, the trip takes ten minutes longer. How many miles does she drive to work? Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #3 20130906 08:45:19
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsdid you get the other ones? Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #4 20130906 10:13:39
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsHave you worked on them? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130906 10:23:19
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsi solved all except for no. 2 and no.3 Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #6 20130906 10:31:17
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsOkay, I will work on them after I get back. I will be offline soon. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130906 10:35:38
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsok no problem Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #8 20130906 10:40:56
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsSorry for the delay but I will get to them. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: mathcounts/amc problemshi mathstudent2000
My approach for questions like these is to introduce letters for the unknowns, make equations, and then solve. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #10 20130906 23:11:09

Re: mathcounts/amc problemsi got the rico problem now but the pillot problem i'm still not sure how to do with the strategy Genius is one percent inspiration and ninetynine percent perspiration #13 20130907 12:37:01
Re: mathcounts/amc problemsI solved it in a slightly different way but all roads lead to Rome. Bob has the solution right up there. In mathematics, you don't understand things.
