Enter to win a 6-month GMAT video course from GMATPrepNow.com.

The rules are very simple: Submit any positive integer (1, 2, 3, etc.) as your entry, and the contestant who submits the smallest unique number wins a 6-month account at www.GMATPrepNow.com

The key word here is UNIQUE. For example, if two or more people submit 1 as their entry, then those entries cannot win, because they're not unique entries. Likewise, if two or more people submit 3 as their entry, then those entries cannot win because they are not unique entries.

So, if 12 people participated in the contest, and the entries were {1, 1, 1, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7}, then the winner would be the person who submitted 4, since 4 was the smallest UNIQUE number submitted.

Does that make sense?

If you'd like to participate in this week's contest, EITHER email your entry (of one positive integer) to contests@gmatprepnow.com with the subject line "Smallest Number Contest" OR private message your entry to me via Reddit (/u/Brent_GMATPrepNow).

Deadline: 7am (Pacific Time) on December 12th, 2017.

The winner will be announced shortly after the deadline passes.

To help you strategize, here are the results from two previous contests:
