We did the third Math Olympiad this week. There are 5 questions on the contest, and each one presented a different challenge. The last question was a logic problem where letters represent numbers, and it was extra tricky! We will work on strategies for tackling this type of problem, as well as the other contest problems next week.
This is an similar problem to work out at home!
