# UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge 2016 watch

What did you get for q15 about the area of a square in a circle?? (I got pi/4)
I got the same but it's wrong. I made way too many careless mistakes on this paper

Do you think the boundaries will be lower or higher than last year?
I think the same or more than last year
3. I think the thresholds will be higher because last year they were very low!

Is the threshold for gold going to be higher than 80, do you reckon...?

Our year at school had a literal war over that question! I was alone in my answer of 11... Apparently it was right. I notice you said Tegwen and HIS, I used Tegwen as a girl! We spent a long time at lunch discussing her gender...
Tegwen is a girl's name....

I know 0 tegwen's
7. Was this years paper harder than last years? This is my 1st time doing the Intermediate Challenge so I don't know.

We didn't know. There were a few people that used her as a brother(don't ask me why) and we weren't allowed to keep our papers. So the arguments began.

I found it easier but a few of my classmates found it harder
10. What if Tegwen and their brothers and sisters were grown up? Then there would be 0 children.

I didn't actually know it was a girl's name and we're not allowed to keep the paper. I'm pretty sure it said she so I worked It out like that. Yet I misread the question so my answer is wrong

Oddly enough that's the question our school went to war over- not any of the harder ones!

4/5
16. What did you all get for question 16 (the one were you had to find the answers to four multiplications, and see which were divisible by 24)?
17. Question 18- C or E?

We all pretty much gave up on the harder ones - we usually have only like 1 person who goes to the next round.
Some people put 5 which I was just confused about.
We did argue about a couple of the harder ones and the fun ones (like the one with the circles and the number from 1-18)

What did people put for the 2016 Liars and truth tellers question?

I never do those questions, I just don't get the logic.

Only one of them worked- the last one.
