### Discrete Maths, ProblemSet#1

These are my solutions to 1st problem set of discrete mathematics course taught at Arsdigita university by Shai Simonson. Other posts relating to this are here.

P3.a-
`(define (find-goals-misses score)  (define (aux goals near-misses)    (let ((tmp (+ (* 11 goals) (* 7 near-misses))))      (cond       ((> score tmp) (aux (+ goals 1) near-misses))       ((< score tmp) (aux goals (- near-misses 1)))       (else  `((goals ,goals) (near-misses ,near-misses))))))  (aux 0 (quotient score 7)))`
