Math problem of the week

The math department here at SJSU has a problem of the week that I like to work on in my spare time.  You earn points for each problem you complete and at the end of the semester there are cash prizes for the top three problem solvers.  My instructor for Math 142, Dr. Schmeichel, said he helps create the problems.  It was hard not to notice that this weeks problem is very similiar to a problem we discussed in his class this week.  Hopefully the opposite is true and problems from the competition will end up being on our test 🙂  Even so, my math has gotten rusty from misuse, so working on these problems is helping me get back into the game.
