Re: HiIs that the UKMT one? If so, me too! Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #3 20050710 17:15:58

Re: HiWhat is that competition? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #5 20050710 18:50:25
Re: HiSurely you must have done it at least once. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #6 20050710 22:44:13
Re: HiI've never, ever heard of it. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #7 20050710 23:21:23
Re: HiGood article on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Mathematical_Olympiad "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20050710 23:56:01
Re: HiI feel sorry for you, Rora. You should nag your teacher to enter you next year! Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #10 20050712 03:16:07
Re: HiWhat exactly is it? Is it like a test? And what age group do they allow? School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #11 20050712 04:00:07
Re: HiIt's kind of a test, but more fun because the questions are more like puzzles than questions. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #12 20050712 18:27:19
Re: HiIf you want to try some of the questions, there are some samples here or try the most recent junior, intermediate or senior past papers. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #13 20050714 18:02:11
Re: HiJenilia  we are dying to hear back from you ... "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #14 20050714 18:19:15
Re: HiYou dont have to die to hear from me. I was tied up in my school work. I'm so sorry. Since I'm new to Maths is fun, I didnt know you guys were so active in replying. Anyway I've never heard of the UKMT before till today as I'm from Singapore. Anyway thanks for letting me know what it is. I doubt it is the same one. Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do. #15 20050714 18:36:46
Re: Hi"Can you tell us more about your entry in the contest, Jenilia?" Ideas are funny little things, they won't work unless you do. #17 20050714 18:43:13
Re: HiI think the UKMT thing is the one that UK people do to find the best school in country, then we both do the same best country in world test. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #20 20050714 18:51:37
Re: HiWhen you join, you're a novice. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #21 20050714 18:52:25
Re: HiMost of us come on about once a day, and we share puzzles and brain teasers, and even do some good mathematics. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #22 20050714 19:01:34
Re: HiI'd explain it if you got the invisible writing up... Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #24 20050714 19:10:05

Re: HiGanesh is right. Multiply anything by 5 and you get something that ends in 5 or 0. All of the numbers are odd, which means that their product will be odd, which rules out it ending in 0. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
