Dutch Mathematics Day Contest 2017 (age group 15 years old)  More space for the festival The Netherlands are becoming more and more a festival country: a lot of festivals are held in summer, from Lowlands to "De Parade". Existing sites are often temporarily transformed into festival grounds for a festival. That means there must be electricity available, there are podiums to be built, the soil should be reinforced, there should be toilets, catering, chill spots, etcetera. Every year, the number of people attending the festivals is also increasing. That means larger "renovations" and thus: more costs. Afterwards, generally, the site is restored to its original state. All of this costs a lot of money! In this task you will figure out how to do it cheaply, while taking into account both the wishes of the owner of the grounds (the local authority ) and the wishes of the festival organizers. 
Dutch Mathematics Day Contest During the Dutch Mathematics Day Contest students work in teams of about 3 to 4 members on an open mathematical problem solving task during a couple of hours. The product of this work is a report (and sometimes a presentation). Dutch Mathematics Day Contest
