Problem 9
A game show offers a contestant three prizes A, B and C, each of which is worth a whole number of dollars from to inclusive. The contestant wins the prizes by correctly guessing the price of each prize in the order A, B, C. As a hint, the digits of the three prices are given. On a particular day, the digits given were . Find the total number of possible guesses for all three prizes consistent with the hint.
Problem 10
The Annual Interplanetary Mathematics Examination (AIME) is written by a committee of five Martians, five Venusians, and five Earthlings. At meetings, committee members sit at a round table with chairs numbered from to in clockwise order. Committee rules state that a Martian must occupy chair and an Earthling must occupy chair . Furthermore, no Earthling can sit immediately to the left of a Martian, no Martian can sit immediately to the left of a Venusian, and no Venusian can sit immediately to the left of an Earthling. The number of possible seating arrangements for the committee is . Find .
Problem 11
Consider the set of all triangles where is the origin and and are distinct points in the plane with nonnegative integer coordinates such that . Find the number of such distinct triangles whose area is a positive integer.
