Use
this online form to build each of your problems.
After filling up all the parts of the form click on the button
that says MakeThisProblem to display a window with the
correct format. Add all the information in this window to your
email message. Repeat this for each problem and send only
one message with all the 5 problems.
DO *NOT* SEND 5 MESSAGES. ONLY ONE! To grab the contents of the window created by MakeThisProblem you can select the text with the mouse, click Edit, then Copy. Go to the end of the window where you are composing the email message and Paste the text in. An alternative way is to click File, save as..., choose save as *text* NOT *source*, use name prob1.txt, then prob2.txt etc.. as the names of the files. After creating all the problems in this way go to your mail program and insert all these files. DO *NOT* SEND ATTATCHEMENTS UNLESS THEY ARE PLAIN ASCII TEXT FILES. Here is an example of how the email message with the submitted problems must look like: \authorandnumber{ Charlie Brown 1 } \problemdate{ 04/22/98 } \partname{4 Making a Box Model } \chaptername{16 The Law of Averages } \begin{problem} \score{1} A coin is tossed 100 times, The difference "twice the number of heads  the number of tails" is like the sum of 100 draws from one of the following boxes. Which one? \begin{choice} \gooditem{ A box with one 2 and one 1 } \baditem{A box with two 1's and a 0 } \baditem{ A box with three tickets, two of which are marked "three" and one of which is marked with a "tails" } \baditem{ A box with two 1's and one 1 } \baditem{ A box with two 1's and two 0's } \end{choice} \begin{longanswer} \begin{verbatim} The correct answer is: A box with one 2 and one 1 Since the chance of getting 2 or 1 is the same 1/2 but every time heads (i.e. the number 2 is drawn) is observed the sum increases by 2 and every time tails (i.e. the number 1 is drawn) is observed the sum decreases by 1. Hence, the total sum will be the same as: "twice the number of heads  number of tails" \end{verbatim} \end{longanswer} \end{problem} \authorandnumber{ Charlie Brown 2 } ( second problem goes here as above .... etc. until the last problem .... \authorandnumber{ Charlie Brown 5 } ... etc... \end{problem} Rules of the Game
