The Center of Math is at MathFest!

The Center of Math is headed to Washington, DC to attend MathFest 2015! This year the Mathematical Association of America is celebrating its centennial, which we are honored to be a part of. Stop by our booth where we will provide information on our products, hand out cool swag, and feature brand new practice problems that were created just for MathFest. 

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google+, to see what we're up to at MathFest. You can use #MAAthFest to share with us your MathFest experiences as well as enter our giveaway—check below the break for more details. We can't wait to see you there!

Keep up with all MathFest events by following their Facebook and using #MAAthFest and #MAA100 

MathFest Challenge Problems!
Every day of MathFest, the Center of Math booth will have a new Challenge Problem for you to keep your mathematical gears grinding: why call if MathFest if you're not actually doing some math? If you're not at MathFest, don't worry: the problems will be posted on our blog every day as well. And, since MathFest has already started, we'd better post today's Challenge Problem, right? Here it is:

Like our normal Problems of the Week, we'll have worked-out solutions for these available after the day each problem goes up, both at our booth and on the blog. You can find the solution for this one below, but for the later ones, we'll be putting them up a while after the problem itself, because these problems aren't just for fun! If you're at MathFest and you can figure out the answer to any of the problems over the next few days, tell it to us on social media with the hashtags #MAAthFest and  #WCoMChallengealong with a selfie from DC, of courseand you'll be entered into a giveaway for some awesome Center of Math swag! Stop by our booth for more information about this opportunity.

Anyway, here's the solution to the first Challenge Problem:

Keep checking back for more practice problems and updates on MathFest!
