Can someone please tell me what equal and unequal partition is? And if the question, I'm just putting an example here, is asking you to find at least 3 equal and unequal partitions of 2020 into 4 parts with a span of 8, how am I suppose to tackle this question.

Thank you.

  • $\begingroup$ I, for one, don't know what an equal/unequal partition refers to. It might help if you told us where exactly you encountered these terms (i.e. the name/author of the textbook). $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jun 6 '17 at 13:32
  • $\begingroup$ It's from the 2017 challenge stage intermediate student problems. And yes, we are allowed to use computers to help us as stated in rule no.3 and the question that I asked wasn't directly from the booklet anyway. $\endgroup$ – G.B Jun 6 '17 at 13:40
  • $\begingroup$ Is that from the Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians? $\endgroup$ – Omnomnomnom Jun 6 '17 at 13:48
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, and it's the intermediate one. $\endgroup$ – G.B Jun 6 '17 at 13:51
