    Contest Problem Book III
    Book Description:

    The annual high school contests have been sponsored since 1950 by the Mathematical Association of America and the Society of Actuaries, and later by Mu Alpha Theta (1965), the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (1967) and the Casulty Actuarial Society (1971). Problems from the contests during the period 1950-1960 are published in Volume 5 of the New Mathematical Library, and those for the 1961-1965 are published in Volume 17. The New Mathematical Library will continue to publish these contest problems from time-to-time; the present volume contains those from the period 1966-1972. The questions were compiled by Professor C.T. Salkind until his death, and since 1968 by Professor J.M. Earl. In preparing this and the earlier Contest Problem Books the editors of the NML have expanded these solutions and added alternative solutions.

    (pp. 183-186)

    To classify these problems is not a simple task; their content is so varied and their solution-possibilities so diverse that it is difficult to pigeonhole them into a few categories. Moreover, no matter which headings are selected, there are borderline cases that need cross-indexing. Nevertheless, the following may be helpful to the reader who wishes to select a particular category of problems.

    The number preceding the semicolon refers to the last two digits of the examination year, and the numbers following the semicolon refer to the problems in that examination. For example, 69; 13 means Problem 13 in the 1969...
