Submitting Solutions

Each solution should be on a separate sheet (or sheets), or must be in a separate email message, and must be received within six months of publication of the problem, although solutions received after that date will also be considered until the time when a solution is published. Solutions typed in the format used by The Fibonacci Quarterly will be given preference.

Submitting Problems

Proposers of problems should normally include solutions. Proposers should inform us of the history of the problem, if it is not original. A problem should not be submitted elsewhere while it is under consideration for publication in this column.
