### Problem

Ok, so I just found out that my university will send two students to the national math problem solving competition this year. I just have to answer a bunch of problems posted on a website to be eligible to go. How cool is that!?! First problem that I worked on:

Solve:

(6^x + 6^-x)/6 = 2

Answer: [ln(6 +/- 35^.5)]/ln(6) = x

w00t! It was an easier problem, but hopefully I can get some of the others right and become a mathlete.

Heh, it is just sort of a happy yell kind of thing. I got it from when I used to play video games a lot in high school.
