Jo in Oklahoma on exercises vs problems

re: SAT problems, Jo in OKC said...
I asked my daughter today. She took the SAT this fall and got a score in the range you mention.

She said the questions are all routine exercises.

She would agree the AMC questions and AIME questions are problems.

One of her favorite areas of math is counting. :-) I remember covering permutations and combinations in high school math. However, what I learned was just a small fraction of what's covered in Art of Problem Solving's Intro to Counting and Probability course or book.
