Back to the list of problems.

Here's the results of the final run:

				Sat Jun 27 09:59:48 EDT 1998
FINAL RESULTS				70 entered
				384 asked for details.
				1720 are on the mailing list!


Thanks to all who participated ... I hope everyone had some fun with
the POTM (even if you just watched from the sidelines!).  As I warned
so many times, there were a lot of entries that did not finish within
the 10 minute time period on some of the problems - my apologies to
these folks (maybe I'll be able to get a faster machine over the summer).
As always, I'll be posting all the details on the web within a week
or so ... check the URLs at the end of this mail.

   The following table contains everyone's final scores on the three
   final test problems:  "a2b", "graffiti", and "hand".  To determine
   the winner, I added the ratios from the three runs (although I did
   not show the sum below, the table is ordered by this sum).  The three
   problems will be on the websites, but here's a quick summary:

   a2b:  a geographic map from Alaska (upper left) to Brazil (lower right)
   graffiti:  some scribbling including a winding "shortest" path
   hand:  an X-ray of somebody's hand

DETAILS OF ALL THE MAPS ARE HERE along with links that graphically display Chad's winning solutions.
