At the beginning of each hour from 1 o’clock AM to 12 NOON
and from 1 o’clock PM to 12

MIDNIGHT a coo-coo clock’s coo-coo bird coo-coos the number of times equal to
the number

**Problem 5**

The sizes of the freshmen class and the sophomore class
are in the ratio 5:4. The sizes of the

sophomore class and the junior class are in the ratio 7:8. The sizes of the
junior class and the

senior class are in the ratio 9:7. If these four classes together have a total
of 2158 students, how

many of the students are freshmen?

**Problem 6**

We draw a radius of a circle . We draw a second radius 23
degrees clockwise from the first

radius. We draw a third radius 23 degrees clockwise from the second. This
continues until we

have drawn 40 radii each 23 degrees clockwise from the one before it. What is
the measure in

degrees of the smallest angle between any two of these 40 radii?

**Problem 7**

At a movie theater tickets for adults cost 4 dollars more
than tickets for children. One afternoon

the theater sold 100 more child tickets than adult tickets for a total sales
amount of 1475 dollars.

How much money would the theater have taken in if the same tickets were sold,
but the costs of

the child tickets and adult tickets were reversed?

**Problem 8**

A rogue spaceship escapes. 54 minutes later the police
leave in a spaceship in hot pursuit. If the

police spaceship travels 12% faster than the rogue spaceship along the same
route, how many

minutes will it take for the police to catch up with the rogues?

**Problem 9**

Moving horizontally and vertically from point to point
along the lines in the diagram below, how

many routes are there from point A to point B which consist of six horizontal
moves and six

vertical moves?

**Problem 10**

How many rectangles are there in the diagram below such
that the sum of the numbers within the

rectangle is a multiple of 7?

**Problem 11**

Find the coefficient of in .

**Problem 12**

How many positive integers divide the number 10! = 1 × 2 × 3 × 4 × 5 × 6 × 7 × 8 × 9 × 10 ?

**Problem 13**

An equilateral triangle with side length 6 has a square of
side length 6

attached to each of its edges as shown. The distance between the two

farthest vertices of this figure (marked A and B in the figure) can be

written as where m and n are positive
integers .

Find m + n.

**Problem 14**

The rodent control task force went into the woods one day
and caught 200 rabbits and 18

squirrels. The next day they went into the woods and caught 3 fewer rabbits and
two more

squirrels than the day before. Each day they went into the woods and caught 3
fewer rabbits and

two more squirrels than the day before. This continued through the day when they
caught more

squirrels than rabbits. Up through that day how many rabbits did they catch in
all?

**Problem 15**

A concrete sewer pipe fitting is shaped like a cylinder
with diameter 48 with a cone on top. A

cylindrical hole of diameter 30 is bored all the way through the center of the
fitting as shown.

The cylindrical portion has height 60 while the conical top portion has height
20. Find N such

that the volume of the concrete is Nπ.
