3 27 In how many ways can the faces of a cube be colored using six colors, if each face is to be a different color, and two colorings are considered the same when one can be obtained from the other by rotating the cube? 28 n ordinary sheet of graph paper has lines wherever x or y is an integer How many paths are there from (0, 0) to (3, 4) which always move along lines in either the positive x or y direction? 29 flagpole is on top of a building which is 40 feet high From a point 0 feet away from the building, the flagpole subtends an angle whose tangent is / How many feet tall is the flagpole? flagpole building 30 The perimeter of a right triangle is 30, and the length of the altitude perpendicular to the hypotenuse is What is the length of the hypotenuse? 3 convex polygon with n sides has all angles equal to 0 degrees, with the possible exception of one angle List all the possible values of n 32 lan and Bill walk at 4 miles per hour, and Chad drives 40 miles per hour They set out from the same point in the same direction with lan walking, and Bill riding with Chad fter an hour, Bill gets out of the car and starts walking in the same direction they were going, while Chad turns the car around and drives back to pick up lan When the car gets back to lan, lan gets into the car, the car turns around and drives until it meets Bill How many miles has Bill traveled when the car meets him? You may assume that no time is required to turn around or to change passengers 33 List all prime numbers which are of the form x 3 x 2 07x + 77 for some integer x 34 Fibo sequence a, a 2, is one in which a and a 2 are positive integers, and a n = a n 2 + a n for n 3 If a, a 2,, 8, is the Fibo sequence which contains 8 and has the largest possible number of terms preceding the 8, write the ordered pair (a, a 2 ) 3 What fourth degree polynomial p has p(0), p(), p(2), p(3), and p(4) equal to 7,, 3,, and 7, respectively? 36 Four spheres of radius are placed so that each is tangent to the other three What is the radius of the smallest sphere that contains all four spheres? 37 Evaluate 999 n= [729n], where [q] denotes the greatest integer q 3

4 38 Points, B, C, and D lie on a circle C is a diameter, and CBD = DB If BC = 2 and B = 4, what is the length of BD? The diagram below is not quite to scale B C D 39 How many ways are there to give 8 indistinguishable cookies to lice, Bob, Carol, Don, and Elizabeth in such a way that everyone gets at least one, and no one gets more than 6? 40 List all real values of p for which the two solutions, α and β, of the equation x 2 2px + p 2 2p = 0 have the property that ((α β) 2 2)/(2((α + β) 2 + 2)) is an integer 4

5 SOLUTIONS, annotated with number of people out of the 46 people who scored at least 22 answering it correctly 2/7 [46] = [46] The volume of the solid was 24, which will be divided into three cubes, each of volume 8 They will have side length [4] The triangle is isosceles, and has a base of 0 and a height of = [4] L + W = 4 and 3L + 2W = 36 We solve these to find L = 8 and W = 6 24 [44] If x is the desired distance, then, by similar triangles, /20 = 8/(8 + x) 6 3,000 [36] If N is the number of people, then 2N + 2 = 3(N 3), and so N = 68 Thus the profit was 9, and the number of cups was 9/0 = 3, [4] Let O be the center of the circle, OP the radius which is perpendicular to the chord, R the point where the chord intersects the radius, and Q one end of the chord Then OR = 3, and ORQ is a right triangle with hypotenuse OQ = and one leg OR = 2 Its other side, RQ equals 9, and is half the length of the chord 8 9 [32] The coins would be,,,,, 0, 0, 2, 0 The first six coins are required to get you up to 9 in the most efficient way You must add another 0 to get to 2, and then the 2 and 0 cover all other cases most efficiently 9 [ 2, 0] [, ) or ( 2 x 0 or x ) [44] The inequality is x(x + 2)(x ) 0 ll three or exactly one of the factors must be nonnegative 0 80 [4] If it hits h at C, the angle there is 40 degrees Then it hits s at point D with angle = 6 If it next hits v at point E, then BDE is a quadrilateral with three of its angles 90, 7, and (80 6) Since a quadrilateral has 360 degrees, this makes the desired angle = [40] Start with and keep doubling, but remove all but the last two digits Keep doing it until a repeat occurs 2, 4, 8, 6, 32, 64, 28, 6, 2, 24, 48, 96, 92, 84, 68, 36, 72, 44, 88, 76, 2, 4 Now it keeps repeating There were 20 steps from one 4 to the next We have 2 n+20 2 n mod 00 for n 2 2 x + 3 [32] Write the polynomial as q(x)(x )(x 2) + ax + b Then a + b = 2 and 2a + b =, leading to a = and b = [20] Multiply by S/S, where S = 9,000,00 + 9,000,000, which is very close to 6000 We obtain /S 4 4 [43] 80 n = 2 4n n, and 20! has exponent of 2 equal to = 8 and exponent of equal to 4 7 [4] We have 2b 2 + 6b + = 8 + 9b +, hence 2b 2 3b 77 = 0, which can be solved either by factoring or by the quadratic formula

6 6 2 [40] The area grew from π to 4π in 60 years In the next 20 years it will increase by an additional 3π/3 Thus the area will be π, so the radius will be, and the diameter [33] If P B is one of these angles, then the number of degrees in angle P equals /2 times the number of degrees in the arc B which does not include P ll portions of the circle will be included in three of the four of these arcs Therefore the answer is [32] The first digit is definitely not an 8, while for each of the other three digits, the probability that it is not an 8 is 09 The answer is , 2 [40] We must have x/(x + 3) x x = x This simplifies to x = x(4x + 9), which is true for x = 0 or [4] The x 6 -term is ( 6 4) (2x 2 ) 4 ( x )2, so the coefficient is [2] Since x 2 3x + 2 = (x )(x 2), both x = and x = 2 make the expression equal to 0, which is a multiple of 9 In addition to these, we look for multiples of 3 for which adding or subtracting yields a multiple of 7 This works for 3 and [40] We must have 3x 3 + αx 2 x 0 = (x 2 r 2 )(3x + 0 r ) The second factor is 2 chosen to make the constant and cubic terms work out Thus α = 0 r and = 3r 2 2 Hence α = 0/(/3) 23 BDC [2] (sin(0)) , (sin(0)) The other two are approximately 0, but sin(x) < x for x > [4] S(P ) has the same value for all points P The lines from P to the vertices of the triangle divide the triangle into three subtriangles The area of each subtriangle is 2 h, where h is its altitude The total area of the triangle, 4 3, equals the sum of the areas of the three subtriangles, which is 2 (h + h 2 + h 3 ) The sum which we desire is h + h 2 + h [44] Since extraneous factors are to be avoided, N should be of the form 2 a 3 b The first requirement forces a to be even and b to be odd The second requirement forces a mod 3 and b 0 mod 3 Thus a = 4 and b = 3 is the smallest possibility, and N = 6 27 = [33] This is like Pascal s triangle t level n, the fraction of the people in horizontal position i is ( n i) /2 i, and so the number of people in position at level 99 is ( ) /2 99 = [22] Call the colors through 6 There are choices for the color opposite color Then there are 3 choices for the color opposite the smallest color not yet used The two ways of placing the remaining two colors yield inequivalent colorings Thus the answer is 3 2 6

7 28 3 [39] It is the binomial coefficient ( 7 3) since there must be 7 steps of which exactly 3 move in the x direction or 2 [32] Let B be the angle to the top of the building x = tan( + B) = tan() + tan(b) tan() tan(b) = = 2 2 Thus x = [2] Let c denote the hypotenuse, and a and b the legs Then a+b+c = 30, c = ab, and a 2 + b 2 = c 2 Eliminating c yields 30 a b = ab ab and ( )2 = a 2 + b 2 Equating the two expressions for ( ab )2 leads to 60a + 60b = ab, while the first says 60a + 60b = ab Equating these yields ab = 900/4 and hence c = 90 or ,9,0,,2 [32] The sum of the interior angles of a convex n-gon is (n 2)80 This must equal (n )0 + a with 0 < a < 80 We obtain a = 30(n 7), Thus 7 < n < 3 It is easy to check that each of these convex n-gons can be formed or [8] Let t denote the number of hours during which Chad was driving back to pick up lan Then 4( + t) = 40 40t, hence t = 9 lthough you can compute it by solving equations, you can also reason it out that Bill will have to drive forward the second time for exactly one hour in order to catch up with Bill The reason for this is that if we forget about the time period when they were both walking, we see that when they eventually meet, they both will have been in the car the same amount of time So, during the two hours when one was walking and one riding each will have traveled 44 miles, and during the other 9/ hour, each will have traveled 36/ miles 33 7, 37 [2] (x )(x 2 07) is composite or 0 except possibly when x = ± or x 2 07 = ± Since 06 and 08 are not perfect squares, the latter does not happen for integer x If x = 0 or 2, then the product equals 7 or (3, 2) [2] Suppose the term immediately before 8 is x Then, working backwards from there, the next terms are 8 x, 2x 8, 62 3x, x 243, 40 8x, 3x 648, 03 2x, and 34x 70 To make these be all positive, we must have x 80, x 4, x 3, x 49, x 0, x 0, x 0, and x The last inequality is inconsistent with those which precede it Hence x = 0, and the sequence is 3, 2,, 7, 2, 9, 3, 0, 8 3 x 4 8x 3 + 2x 2 20x + 7 [22] One way is to write p(x) = ax 4 + bx 3 + cx 2 + dx + 7 and solve four linear equations for a, b, c, and d better way is to note that if q(x) = p(x + 2), then q(±) = and q(±2) = 7, and so q(x) = ex 4 + fx We get e + f = 2 and 6e + 4f = 4, from which we obtain e = and f = 3 Thus p(x) = q(x 2) = (x 2) 4 3(x 2) 2 + 3, which is easily expanded to the claimed polynomial [0] The centers of the four spheres form a regular tetrahedron of side length 2 The center of the the bounding sphere must be at the point in the tetrahedron which 7 7

8 is the intersection of its altitudes Each altitude will have one end at the centroid of a face, so will have length 2 2 ( 3 2 3)2 = 8/3 Just as the intersection of the altitudes of an equilateral triangle is /3 of the way up the altitudes, the intersection of the altitudes of a regular tetrahedron is /4 of the way up the altitudes Thus the distance from the center of the bounding sphere to one of the other centers is 3 4 8/3 = 2 6 We add to this to get the radius of the bounding sphere [6] This is the case a = 000 and b = 729 of the following, which has (a )(b )/2 as the answer Evaluate a n] if a and b have no common factors [ b a n= The answer is best obtained by thinking of the grid along integer lines in the rectangle [0, a] [0, b] Since a and b have no common factors, the diagonal from (0, 0) to (a, b) will not pass through any lattice points, except at its endpoints Thus the desired answer is the number of lattice points having y > 0 lying below the line which satisfy n a This diagonal will exactly bisect the rectangle [, a ] [0, b] The total number of lattice points in this rectangle, excluding the top and bottom edges, is (a )(b ), and half of them lie below the line [] Since C is a diameter, B is a right angle, and so angle CBD and DB are 4 degrees ngle CD is also 4 degrees (π/4 radians), since it subtends the same arc as does angle CBD We have C = = 2, and, if θ = BC, then sin θ = / By the Extended Law of Sines, BD/ sin( BD) equals the diameter of the circle Thus BD = 2 sin(θ + π 4 ) = (sin(θ) + cos(θ)) = 0 3 = 3 2 B C D [3] fter giving one to each, there are 3 left to distribute You can enumerate the number of distributions directly, by considering all the ways to have five numbers add up to 3, and multiply each possibility by the appropriate permutation number But generating functions provide a better method Let p(x) = + x + + x Then the monomials in p()p(b)p(c)p(d)p(e) whose exponents sum to 3 correspond to the desired ways The number of these is the coefficient of x 3 in ( ) x p(x) 6 = = ( x 6 + 0x 2 )( x) x Since the coefficient of x n in ( x) is ( ) ( n+4 4, the answer is 0 ) ( 4 ) ( ) 4 = = 780 8

9 40 4, 2 [3] We have α + β = 2p and αβ = p2 2p Thus (α β) 2 = (2p) 2 4(p 2 2p ) = 4(2p + ) We want real values of p for which 4p+ 4p 2 +2 = n, with n an integer If n = 0, we get p = 4 If n 0, this yields a quadratic equation for p, with solution p = ± n(2n ) 2n This gives a real solution for p only if 2 n The only nonzero integer n in this range is, yielding p = 2 (lthough not necessary for solving the problem, one can find that for p = 4, {α, β} = {( ± 2 2)/4} and if p = 2, then {α, β} = {( ± 2 2)/2}) 9
