    Australian Maths Competition

    Just flicking through my diary seeing the date that term 3 starts, i stumble upon the heading Australian Maths Competition. Apparently on my dairy it says it is on the August 6th (Thursday). Has any body done this from past years? Was it hard? easy? Also any past papers if possible? Thank you in advanced for reply. btw im in year 10 (2009).

    Re: Australian Maths Competition

    Hi

    I have done the test for the past 4 years so i know it quite well

    Generally the test starts out as easy and as you work through the questions, they grow in difficulty. Just to give you an idea, most don't finish the 30 questions within the time limit. The difficulty will depend on yourself. Are you good at maths? Can you think laterally? etc.

    You can usually find past papers at school or off a generous friend. OR you could just buy them off the website http://www.amtt.com.au/

    btw. i average about a distinction / HD and even i find it somewhat hard

    Hope that helps

    No, that's silly...The easy questions are easy marks..do them first, and only if you have time, try a few of the last questions

    same here Kurt.
    However, I doubt we would have much advantage over the rest of the participants.
    The questions asked have little to no relevance to high school maths curriculum. :mad1:

    Westpac Maths Comp marathon

    okay, so the Westpac maths comp (aka AMC) is coming up so for those who are doing it or just want do some hard maths problems this "marathon" is a kind of warm up =)

    So to get the ball rolling, i will post up a westpac maths question and who ever correctly solves it gets to post up another westpac question and then who ever solves that posts up another westpac question etc. We should start off fairly easy and increase the difficulty of the questions as the marathon progresses.

    If you dont have any of the papers i have posted them here:

    http://community.boredofstudies.org/...ml#post4478693

    Or if you have some of the questions from an earlier year feel free to post them =)

    QUESTION 1

    A rectangle has its length 25 times its width. What is the ratio of
    its perimeter to the perimeter of the square of the same area?

    -(A) 13 : 5 (B) 13 : 10 (C) 5 : 1 (D) 51 : 20 (E) 51 : 10



    Ready, Steady, GO!

    A lucky number is a positive integer which is 19 times the sum of its digits. How
    many different lucky numbers are there?
