so thats the whole reasoning behind that concept?Yes, so if it was 4.9E3, your answer would be 3, but if it was 5E3, then your answer would be 4. You just round to the closest exponent really. (4900 is closer to 1000 than 10000, 5000 rounds up to 10000.
Unless you think Magnitude Notation caused you to over-estimate. Then you round 5000 down. It could go either way.Yes, so if it was 4.9E3, your answer would be 3, but if it was 5E3, then your answer would be 4. You just round to the closest exponent really.

Isn't time a tie breaker?I am assuming the same amount of time rule means that is the event supervisor thinks starting the test will take 3-4 minutes they should decide all teams will start the test 5 minutes into the 50 minute block so all teams have 45 minutes instead of some teams having more or less time. I personally think the wording of the rules when it says "as many as possible" implies the questions should not have individual time limits.
The way I read that is if someone leaves early the time will be recorded, and that could be used to break a tie of two basically identically scoring teams.Isn't time a tie breaker?I am assuming the same amount of time rule means that is the event supervisor thinks starting the test will take 3-4 minutes they should decide all teams will start the test 5 minutes into the 50 minute block so all teams have 45 minutes instead of some teams having more or less time.

I feel like that would cause problems...someone should probably submit a clarification.The way I read that is if someone leaves early the time will be recorded, and that could be used to break a tie of two basically identically scoring teams.Isn't time a tie breaker?I am assuming the same amount of time rule means that is the event supervisor thinks starting the test will take 3-4 minutes they should decide all teams will start the test 5 minutes into the 50 minute block so all teams have 45 minutes instead of some teams having more or less time.
