Students are invited to participate Saturday in the 16th annual Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges Math Contest, which will be held 10 a.m.-1 p.m. throughout Pardee Hall. Coffee and snacks will be served 9:30-10 a.m. in the lobby.

Students from Lafayette, Lehigh, Muhlenberg, Morvian, Cedar Crest, and DeSales will take part in the competition. Free pizza lunch will be provided during a “solution fest” afterward.

A Lafayette team has earned first place in the last five contests. The College fielded squads that took four of the top five places in last year’s competition.

Sample problem: Here is a sequence of numbers: 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, What is the 2004th number on this list?
