Problem of the Week

This week's problem's solution is actually easier to state than the problem itself. That isn't to say that it's easier to arrive at, though! There is not a whole lot of theory involved at reaching the solution, only a few clever insights.

Drum roll, please...The solution is:


We hope that you enjoyed this problem! We have problems like this up every Monday; just check out the Center of Math Twitter.
