What would that be?

Re: Expectation

Last Saturday was the Serbian Republic competition in mathematics. I got a third place award and I am going to the Serbian Mathematical Olympiad. smile

Re: Expectation

I don't like it much. I just get ideas faster than in other 3 topics that are included in the competition.

Re: Expectation

Actually, sorry. I get ideas slower in the 2 other topics, analysis and geometry.

In combinatorics I get ideas the fastest.
