The 2022 High School Math Competition took place online on April 30.

A total of 69 students from 18 different schools participated in the event, including a handful of international participants. The event was organized by SoM graduate student Trevor Gunn, together with 10 volunteers who assisted in running the event.

Some sample problems from the event included:

  1. Find all prime numbers p such that p + 28 and p + 50 are also primes.
  2. How many binary strings are there of length 10 which do not contain either '101' or '010' as a substring?


All of the problems - and solutions! - are posted on the HSMC website https://hsmc.gatech.edu/exams for anyone interested in seeing what the participants were up against.
