American Mathematical Monthly Problems - 2017

The American Mathematical Monthly is an expository journal intended for a wide audience of mathematicians, from undergraduate students to research professionals. Each issue has a Problems and Solutions section where several new problems are proposed. Below you can find the solutions that I've submitted this year (pdfs will be available after the deadline). As regards the previous years, you can take a look through the following links (but beware of nerd sniping !): 2016 (50), 2015 (48), 2014 (41), 2013 (29), 2012 (22), 2011 (22), 2010 (15), 2009 (13), 2008 (16), 2007 (15), 2006 (16), 2005 (22), 2004 (14), 2003 (13), 2002 (6), 2001-1993 (19).
