(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Putnam- what math??

please tell me what math knowledge is needed to solve any of the problems listed there. i.e. prob x1 requires no previous math knowledge. probx2 requires linear algebra course. and so on.

i would not be surprised if most of those problems required analysis or algebra. but i have no idea what is 'number theory,graph theory, combinatorics'-and i'd like to know to which problems those courses apply. thanks.
