Default This is about MathCounts

If you are reading good but I am going to start a Mock MathCounts post a comment if you want to join
This should train you to win the school MathCounts competition and the Chapter at least the First problem i am taking from old sprint problems from chapter and state
Problem 1 of the ste sprint of this year ( the winner of the NC MathCounts is Kavi Jain an 8th grader from our school he got a perfect score)Sharon bought a mixture of nuts that was made up of pecans, walnuts and cashews in a ratio by weight of 2:3:1, respectively. If she bought 9 pounds of nuts, how many pounds of walnuts were in the mixture? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.
There are 2 tests that affect your individual score
The Sprint a quick 40 minute test for 30 questions
that is why it is called the Sprint it is quick
The Target a test of 4 different sheets that have 6 minutes for 2 questions total 8 questions 2 questions per sheet
This is why it is called the target you have time to target the answer
These are the most important if you are a individual competitor.
The Team important for team but not individuals.
10 hard questions and you solve them in 30 minutes.(our school is very prestigious and got 5th in the states and 1st in the chapter competition.)
sprint questions are 1 point each and target are 2 points each totaling to a 46 and perfect scores are ridiculously hard to get especially at the states
(this is also in my blog please read 5 points for the first 5 people who answer correctly and post the comment on my blog)
