AUSTRALIAN MATHEMATICS COMPETITION for the Wales awards. Sponsored by Conberra College of Advanced Education Bank of New South Wales Canberra Mathematical Association 1978 INTERMEDIATE DIVISION COMPETITION PAPER (School Years 9 and 10) INSTRUCTIONS Do not open this booklet until told to do so by your teacher. Calculators are not permitted. Scribbling paper, graph paper, ruler and compasses are permitted. All answers should be recorded on your separate answer sheet. Read carefully the instructions on this answer sheet. If unable to solve a problem it is better not to answer the question. Avoid random guessing as there is a penalty for wrong answers. When your teacher gives the signal begin working on the problems. You have 1% hours working time. Diagrams are NOT drawn to scale. They are intended as aids only.
