AMTNJ 36th Annual Math Contest December 5, 2012 Directions: Ø Answers should only be in the form specified: decimals must be at least three decimal places rounded or truncated. For example, 2/3 = 0.666 or 0.667. Fractions and irrational quantities must be in simplest form. In some cases, the desired form of an answer is specified. No other form will be accepted in those cases. Ø You may only use calculators which are permitted on the SAT I. Ø You will have exactly 45 minutes to complete this contest. Work quickly, work accurately, and good luck. Ø You may write on this test paper or on any scrap paper provided by your teacher, but your answers must be written on the Student Response Sheet, to be official. 1) Find a negative number which when added to its square gives a sum of 506. 2) The arithmetic mean of a and b is 2.
