The first two are from the very first International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO), held in 1959 in Romania. For those familiar with the IMO in recent years, it may come as a shock to see the vast difference in level between the early years and present times. One longs for the good old days! For those not familiar with the IMO, here is some information about its structure. There are a total of six problems in the Olympiad, administered over two days, three on each day. It is customary for the first and fourth problems to be the easiest in the collection, and for the third and sixth ones to be the most difficult.
