 The International Mathematics Olympiad (IMO), is an annual mathematics competition for high school students [cited: IMO Article in Wikipedia]. It is one  in fact, the oldest  of the International Science Olympiads. The first IMO was held in Romania in 1959. The problems come from various areas of mathematics, such as are included in math curricula at secondary schools. Finding the solutions of these problems, however, requires exceptional mathematical ability and excellent mathematical knowledge on the part of the contestants.
The paper consists of six problems, with each problem being worth seven points, the total score thus being 42 points. No calculators are allowed. The examination is held over two consecutive days; the contestants have fourandahalf hours to solve three problems per day. The problems chosen are from various areas of secondary school mathematics, broadly classifiable as geometry, number theory, algebra, and combinatorics. They require no knowledge of higher mathematics such as calculus and analysis, and solutions are often short and elementary. However, they are usually disguised so as to make the process of finding the solutions difficult. Prominently featured are algebraic inequalities, complex numbers, and constructionoriented geometrical problems, though in recent years the latter has not been as popular as before.

 I don't even know what these problems are coz I have no knowledge about math in English, if it was translated in Dutch I could give it a try  Spoiler:

i prob wont coz its holidays
