2022 Raytheon Technologies MATHCOUNTS National Competition Highlights

Allan Yuan is the National Champion!

Allan Yuan, a 13-year-old eighth grader from Hoover, Alabama, won the Countdown Round by answering this question in 6 seconds: “From a group of 9 students, three separate teams are to be formed—one consisting of 2 students, and one consisting of 4 students. If each student must be on exactly one team, how many distinct sets of three teams are possible?”
