We are delighted to report that **over 272 000** students took part in the Junior Mathematical Challenge on Tuesday 30 April.

## What age is junior maths challenge?

The Junior Mathematical Challenge (JMC) is an introductory challenge for pupils in **Years 8 or below (aged 13) or below**, taking place in spring each year. This takes the form of twenty-five multiple choice questions to be sat in exam conditions, to be completed within one hour.

## How do you prepare for the Junior Maths Challenge?

One great way for students to prepare for Challenge is to **look at questions and papers from previous Junior Maths Challenges**. This is one way for teachers to help their students to think in a more mathematical fashion, getting them in the right frame of mind to solve the Challenge’s questions.

## How many marks is the junior maths challenge out of?

5 marks are awarded for each correct answer to questions 1 – 15. 6 marks are awarded for each correct answer to questions 16 – 25. In the Junior Mathematical Challenge you will NOT lose marks for getting questions wrong. Answers left blank will be marked as 0.

## What is the hardest math question ever answered?

For decades, a math puzzle has stumped the smartest mathematicians in the world. **x**^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}=k, with k being all the numbers from one to 100, is a Diophantine equation that’s sometimes known as “summing of three cubes.”

## What is the hardest math sum in the world?

Today’s mathematicians would probably agree that the **Riemann Hypothesis** is the most significant open problem in all of math. It’s one of the seven Millennium Prize Problems, with $1 million reward for its solution.

## Has 3X 1 been solved?

After that, the 3X + 1 problem has appeared in various forms. It is one of the most infamous unsolved puzzles in the word. Prizes have been offered for its solution for more than forty years, but **no one has completely and successfully solved it** [5].

## What’s the answer to x3 y3 z3 K?

The equation x3+y3+z3=k is known as the **sum of cubes** problem. For decades, a math puzzle has stumped the smartest mathematicians in the world. x3+y3+z3=k, with k being all the numbers from one to 100, is a Diophantine equation that’s sometimes known as “summing of three cubes.” ∴ The required result will be 3xyz.

## What are the 7 unsolvable math problems?

Clay “to increase and disseminate mathematical knowledge.” The seven problems, which were announced in 2000, are the **Riemann hypothesis, P versus NP problem, Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, Hodge conjecture, Navier-Stokes equation, Yang-Mills theory, and Poincaré conjecture**.

## What is the oldest math problem?

Mathematicians worldwide hold the **Riemann Hypothesis of 1859** (posed by German mathematician Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866)) as the most important outstanding maths problem. The hypothesis states that all nontrivial roots of the Zeta function are of the form (1/2 + b I).
