Default Math contest/problems-Now Over

I'm thinking of holding a contest sort of thing
where there are going to be 6 rounds of 5 questions each, and at the end the top 3 winners will recieve 5000, 4000, and 3000 points respectively

just private message me your answers

only people in grades 8 and under can join!

i will post the first round in a few days, and i will wait for 5 days for people to message me the answers!

Hopefully it will work out!

Default the first contest

private message me the answers you get...

1. If x=2, y=-3, and z=-12, what is xy-z+xz?

2. If there was a class of 923 people who had a test, and whoever score above the average get a treat, what is the highest number of people who can get a treat? There is no rounding involved, the average can be a decimal with a billion decimal places for all i care.

3. If someone wakes up at x a.m., and goes to sleep at x p.m., how long does he stay up?

4. If x=y, what is x to the power of x-y?x and y do not equal 0.

5. What is the y-intercept of the line x=5y-17?


These could be hard, but its a waste of time to have an easy contest!

Hard? Don't make me laugh. Tricky is the word you're looking for. I have a question, though. What if there's a tie?

All right, I've answered. These are harder than last time's. You still haven't answered my question, which is the reason that I am posting again. Ahem.

Could you go a bit slower?
You said one every five days, but you've already posted 2 today!
How about one every day?
By the way, how many did I get wrong?
