Problems and Solutions

**This site is to prove – yes, to prove as math is about proving – that**

math is fun – math is toy – math is lovely – math is joy!

The above small “poem” can be the epigraph of this site — let’s see it again when formatted:

- Math is fun, math is toy,
- Math is lovely, math is joy.

Of course, we can create some music to these words, because math is music, too! And then we can continue as

- Math is charm, math is art,
- Math is music, math is bright.

Well, you may say that your experience is that math is not the simplest playing device, it can be really hard. To be honest we have to admit:

- Math is deep, math is fight,
- Math is complex, math is hard.

All in all, math is a very special device and I want to convince you about its unique beauty. Oh yes, in addition it is extremely useful in our everyday life, it is simply indispensable. It’s not just the ivory tower: it is with us all the time wherever we come and go, whatever we think or do. It never cheats us: it’s just math.

- Math is true, math is nice,
- Math is faithful, math is life.

You can find math problems on the page “Solve and send”. If you send me your solutions, I will give you my feedback on your work. I suggest that you study and solve these problems if you want to take part in international math competitions where you will meet more difficult problems.

The best and most interesting solutions given by any student will be shown to the public. If you work hard, your name could become famous through My Math 4 You.
