    When is the senior maths challenge? I'm taking part and I know that it's soon but I'm not sure of the exact date.

    Here is the most difficult question from last years SMC for anybody who is interested. I didn't get the answer when I actually sat the test but I managed to work it out afterwards:


    Let N be a positive integer less than 10^2002. When the digit 1 is placed after the last digit of N, the number formed is three times as many as the number formed when the digit 1 is placed in frpont of the first digit of N. How many different values of N are there?
