Issue 16: Are You Smarter Than Your High Schooler?

As the last few weeks of summer approach and Labor Day looms on the horizon, thoughts turn from sunscreen and bug spray to school supplies and scheduling conflicts. Wasn’t Memorial Day just yesterday?

If there is ever a week to have “summer brain,” this is it. Therefore, this week’s issue features two Math questions that may not be softballs but aren’t the hardest anyone would ever see on the SAT or ACT.

The standard Math disclaimer applies: you don’t need to know any specific formulas to solve each problem.
