A new machine learning framework provides doctors with a reliable tool to help diagnose Alzheimer's disease early.

What do we know about monkeypox, what do we not know, and what efforts are going into modelling it?

The COVID-19 emergency resulted in some amazing mathematical collaborations.

Here's a simple game at which a human can out-fox even the cleverest algorithm.

The INI is celebrating its 30th birthday. What is it and what is it do for maths and mathematicians?

There are seven distinct ways of factoring 36 into groups of three integers:

1 3 12 (sum is 16)

1 4 9 (sum is 14)

1 1 36 (sum is 38)

1 6 6 (sum is 13)

2 2 9 (sum is 13)

2 3 6 (sum is 11)

3 4 3 (sum is 10)

The 2nd clue is not about the house number but the fact that, even knowing the

house number is insufficient to work out their ages. This means that the sum

cannot be unique.

Of all the possibilities listed above, only (1 6 6) and (2 2 9) provide sums

that are non-unique.

The 3rd clue tells us that there is an eldest. Hence the ages are 2, 2 and 9.
