Hey! Where are all the answers?

Solutions are usually posted to the mailing list about a week after the problem. At Professor Wagon's request, we publish them here only for the duration of the semester. Anyone wishing the solution to one or two of the problems can request them from Stan Wagon (wagon@macalester.edu). Please include the problem number in your request. Better yet, check out the book Which Way Did the Bicycle Go?

If you would like to contribute a novel solution to the latest problem, or you want to suggest a new problem, please send it to Stan Wagon (wagon@macalester.edu), the person who runs the mailing list. He says:

I do not necessarily wish to receive e-solutions unless: (a) you have an interesting nonstandard approach to a solution, (b) you have a variation or extension that might be worthy of dissemination, or (c) you have information about the history of the problem. Of course, I encourage your problem suggestions.
