Please remem­ber that your solu­tion of every prob­lem should include not only the right answer but the full reas­on­ing as well.

We will be happy if your friends who like math­em­at­ics also par­ti­cip­ate. How­ever, every assign­ment should be done indi­vidu­ally; oth­er­wise, your sub­mis­sion will not be con­sidered.

Please be care­ful with pre­par­a­tion of your work, fol­low the rules and provide all neces­sary data. You do not need to include prob­lem state­ments into your sub­mis­sion; please write down your solu­tions only.

You can write your solu­tions by hand and scan them or type them using a text edit­or. Solu­tions should be writ­ten in Esper­anto, Eng­lish, French, Geor­gi­an, Ger­man, Per­sian, Romani­an, Rus­si­an, Span­ish, Ukrain­i­an, or Uzbek. Use of oth­er lan­guages should be agreed with the organ­izers in advance. For anonym­ous grad­ing, you should not write your name on the paper sheets with solu­tions.
