In an impressive show of intellect and mathematical prowess, student teams from Glenmuir High and Immaculate Conception competed for the winning trophy in the finals of the inaugural University of Technology, Jamaica Mathematics Quiz Competition last Thursday.
At the end of regulation time, the teams were tied on 13 points. It was the tie-breaker question posed by quiz master Kevin Williams — “When asked how old she was, Beth replied; in two years time I will be twice as old as I was five years ago. How old is she?” — that gave the Glenmuir High team the edge. Immaculate answered incorrectly and lost two points.
