This quantity is a republication and growth of the much-loved Wohascum County challenge booklet, released in 1993. the unique one hundred thirty difficulties were retained and supplemented through an extra seventy eight difficulties. The puzzles contained inside of, that are available yet by no means regimen, were in particular chosen for his or her mathematical attraction, and distinct suggestions are supplied. The reader will stumble upon puzzles regarding calculus, algebra, discrete arithmetic, geometry and quantity concept, and the amount comprises an appendix picking the prerequisite wisdom for every challenge. A moment appendix organises the issues via material in order that readers can concentration their cognizance on certain types of difficulties in the event that they want. This assortment will offer entertainment for pro challenge solvers and when you desire to hone their abilities.

P. 208) 26 PROBLEMS 119–128 119. Find all twice continuously differentiable functions f for which there exists a constant c such that, for all real numbers a and b, b a f(x) dx − b−a f(b) + f(a) 2 ≤ c(b − a)4 . (p. 211) 120. Let A be a set of n real numbers. Because A has 2n subsets, we can get 2n sums by choosing a subset B of A and taking the sum of the numbers in B. ) What is the least number of different sums we must get (as a function of n) by taking the 2n possible sums of subsets of a set with n numbers?

Define a sequence of functions f0 = f, f1 , f2 , . . by repeated integration, as follows: x f0 (x) = f(x) and fi+1 (x) = fi (t) dt , for i = 0, 1, 2, . . 0 Show that for any continuous function f and any real number x, lim fn (x) = 0. n→∞ (p. 183) 102. Consider an arbitrary circle of radius 2 in the coordinate plane. Let n be the number of lattice points (points whose coordinates are both integers) inside, but not on, the circle. a. What is the smallest possible value for n? b. What is the largest possible value for n?
