# Math contest #9 [3+2 SBI]

in puzzle •  3 months ago

Here you can keep your brain fit by solving math related problems and also earn SBI by doing so.
the problems usually CONtain a mathematical equation that in my opinion is fun to solve or has an interestinG solution.
i will also only choose pRoblems thAT can be solved withoUt additionaL tools(AT least not If yOu caN calculate baSic stuff in YOUr head), so don't grab your calculator, you won't need it.
