MoMath: the National Museum of Mathematics

MoMath: the National Museum of Mathematics The National Museum of Mathematics strives to enhance public understanding and perception of mathematics with hands-on, interactive exhibits and programs.

Note MoMath closes early (2:30 pm) the first Wednesday of every month. Mathematics illuminates the patterns that abound in our world. The museum’s activities will lead a broad and diverse audience to understand the evolving, creative, human, and aesthetic nature of mathematics. Accomplishments to date include opening North America's only museum devoted to math and its many connections with nature,

Can you solve 🤔 this #mathmonday challenge?

A magic number pentagram is a pentagram that has its points and the five intersections of two lines all labeled with numbers, so that the sum of the four numbers along any line of the pentagram is the same.

What is the smallest integer N such that there is a magic pentagram with labels which are distinct positive integers less than or equal to N?

🇺🇸 Happy Labor Day 🇺🇸
In honor of the millions of hardworking Americans, can you solve today’s #mathmonday challenge?

Cheryl’s assistant mails out some letters and as the responses come back, it turns out that all of the letters to Sweden and all of the letters to Brazil were placed in the wrong envelopes, and only one of the letters to Singapore reached its intended recipient. “But look at the bright side,” says the assistant, “at least every letter made it to the correct country!” Cheryl responds, “Whatever am I going to do with you? You addressed all the envelopes correctly, but out of the thousands of ways you could have put the letters into the envelopes, there were only six ways to mix them up in this particular fashion. And yet somehow you managed to do it.”

If the letters concerned were sent only to Sweden, Brazil and Singapore, how many letters did the assistant send out?
