Problem 5
The taxicab distance between points and in the coordinate plane is given by For how many points with integer coordinates is the taxicab distance between and the origin less than or equal to ?
Problem 6
A data set consists of (not distinct) positive integers: , , , , , and . The average (arithmetic mean) of the numbers equals a value in the data set. What is the sum of all possible values of ?
Problem 7
A rectangle is partitioned into regions as shown. Each region is to be painted a solid color - red, orange, yellow, blue, or green - so that regions that touch are painted different colors, and colors can be used more than once. How many different colorings are possible?
Problem 8
The infinite product evaluates to a real number. What is that number?
Problem 9
On Halloween children walked into the principal's office asking for candy. They can be classified into three types: Some always lie; some always tell the truth; and some alternately lie and tell the truth. The alternaters arbitrarily choose their first response, either a lie or the truth, but each subsequent statement has the opposite truth value from its predecessor. The principal asked everyone the same three questions in this order.
"Are you a truth-teller?" The principal gave a piece of candy to each of the children who answered yes.
"Are you an alternater?" The principal gave a piece of candy to each of the children who answered yes.
"Are you a liar?" The principal gave a piece of candy to each of the children who answered yes.
How many pieces of candy in all did the principal give to the children who always tell the truth?
Problem 10
How many ways are there to split the integers through into pairs such that in each pair, the greater number is at least times the lesser number?
Problem 11
What is the product of all real numbers such that the distance on the number line between and is twice the distance on the number line between and ?
Problem 12
Let be the midpoint of in regular tetrahedron . What is ?
Problem 13
Let be the region in the complex plane consisting of all complex numbers that can be written as the sum of complex numbers and , where lies on the segment with endpoints and , and has magnitude at most . What integer is closest to the area of ?
Problem 14
What is the value of where denotes the base-ten logarithm?
Problem 15
The roots of the polynomial are the height, length, and width of a rectangular box (right rectangular prism). A new rectangular box is formed by lengthening each edge of the original box by units. What is the volume of the new box?
Problem 16
A triangular number is a positive integer that can be expressed in the form , for some positive integer . The three smallest triangular numbers that are also perfect squares are and . What is the sum of the digits of the fourth smallest triangular number that is also a perfect square?
Problem 17
Suppose is a real number such that the equation has more than one solution in the interval . The set of all such that can be written in the form where and are real numbers with . What is ?
Problem 18
Let be the transformation of the coordinate plane that first rotates the plane degrees counterclockwise around the origin and then reflects the plane across the -axis. What is the least positive integer such that performing the sequence of transformations returns the point back to itself?
Problem 19
Suppose that cards numbered are arranged in a row. The task is to pick them up in numerically increasing order, working repeatedly from left to right. In the example below, cards are picked up on the first pass, and on the second pass, on the third pass, on the fourth pass, and on the fifth pass. For how many of the possible orderings of the cards will the cards be picked up in exactly two passes?
Problem 20

Problem 23
Let and be the unique relatively prime positive integers such that Let denote the least common multiple of the numbers . For how many integers with is ?
Problem 24
How many strings of length formed from the digits , , , , are there such that for each , at least of the digits are less than ? (For example, satisfies this condition because it contains at least digit less than , at least digits less than , at least digits less than , and at least digits less than . The string does not satisfy the condition because it does not contain at least digits less than .)
