## Problem 1

Let $ABCD$ be a square. Points $P$ and $Q$ are on sides $AB$ and $CD,$ respectively $,$ such that the areas of quadrilaterals $APQD$ and $BPQC$ are $20$ and $21,$ respectively. Given that $\tfrac{AP}{BP}=2,$ then $\tfrac{DQ}{CQ}=\tfrac{a}{b},$ where $a$ and $b$ are relatively prime positive integers. Find $a+b$.

## Problem 2

For digits $a, b, c,$ with $a\neq 0,$ the positive integer $N$ can be written as $\underline{a}\underline{a}\underline{b}\underline{b}$ in base $9,$ and $\underline{a}\underline{a}\underline{b}\underline{b}\underline{c}$ in base $5$. Find the base- $10$ representation of $N$.
