Difference between en1 and en2, changed 11 character(s)
Hey &mdash; wanted to announce a new competition.↵

[QuickMaths](https://quickmaths.io) now has two new levels &mdash; Sum of Squares and Prime Factorization.↵

The contest starts now until Friday
Feb 30March 1 (7:30 PM EST).↵

After the competition period ends, I'll host a twitch stream and the top 5 ratings in each of these two category will face off in 5 head-to-head showdowns (in the respective category) and everyone will be able to watch. Each round will give 5 points to the winner, 4 points to the next, 3 to the next, 2, and then 1 &mdash; and the 1st place in rating will start with 10 points, 2nd will start with 8 points, 3rd will start with 6 points, 4th will start with 2 points, and 5th will start with 0 points.↵

The winners in each category will win **$50 each (via Amazon Gift Card)**.↵ Good luck!↵ The Sum of Squares task is to write a number as the sum of at most 4 squares. For example,$151 = 100 + 25 + 25 + 1$so an acceptable answer would be "100 25 25 1" or "25,1,25,100", etc.↵ The Prime Factorization task is to prime factorize the given number. For example, the prime factorization of$405\$ would be "3^4 * 5" or "5^1*3^4", etc.↵
