Putnam Participants

I was just wondering if anyone here has taken the Putnam (or any other competition for that matter)? I've taken it the past 2 years. It would be kinda cool to talk to other people who have entered in these.

I've participated in AMC 12, AIME, USA math talent search (usamts.org), Ohio Councel of Teachers of Mathematics, and Ohio Math League (may be the same as other states' math leagues). I sent my math teacher information on other math contests: we'll see what comes of it.

Nice! How've you done in those? Are there any problems that you really liked? Post some interesting ones if you want . I looked on the USAMTS website and it looks like its still going on for this year, are you participating ?

Here's an interesting one from the USAMTS:

Every point in the plane is colored either red, green, or blue. Prove that there exists a rectangle in the plane such that all four of its vertices are the same color.

If anyone has seen the solution in the USAMTS website, please wait a few days before posting in this topic.

Re: Putnam Participants

I think we have to proove that if every rectangle we can draw on the plane is not of just one color we arrive at a contradiction. But I am nnot sure what that contradiction is.

is there a paticular theory in graph theory related to this?
lol

good luck

Re: Putnam Participants

I have Putnam-ed as well! As a freshmen, I felt as though the exam was a bit intimidating, although it was certainly not as bad as I thought it would be.
When is the result coming out, anyway?

Re: Putnam Participants

Yeah, Putnam ones aren't that bad compared to IMO ones.To solve IMO ones, you definitely have to be gifted.

Putnam results generally come out around the end of March, as you probably know by now...
