Problem 7
Seven cubes, whose volumes are , , , , , , and cubic units, are stacked vertically to form a tower in which the volumes of the cubes decrease from bottom to top.

Problem 11
A frog sitting at the point begins a sequence of jumps, where each jump is parallel to one of the coordinate axes and has length , and the direction of each jump (up, down, right, or left) is chosen independently at random. The sequence ends when the frog reaches a side of the square with vertices and . What is the probability that the sequence of jumps ends on a vertical side of the square

Problem 20
Let be the triangle in the coordinate plane with vertices , , and .

How many of the sequences of three of these transformations (not necessarily distinct) will return to its original position? (For example, a rotation, followed by a reflection across the -axis, followed by a reflection across the -axis will return to its original position, but a rotation, followed by a reflection across the -axis, followed by another reflection across the -axis will not return to its original position.)

After rerolling, he wins if and only if the sum of the numbers face up on the three dice is exactly . Jason always plays to optimize his chances of winning. What is the probability that he chooses to reroll exactly two of the dice?
