## Problem 1

Square is For the lengths of the sides of square are half the lengths of the sides of square two adjacent sides of square are perpendicular bisectors of two adjacent sides of square and the other two sides of square are the perpendicular bisectors of two adjacent sides of square The total area enclosed by at least one of can be written in the form where and are relatively prime positive integers. Find

## Problem 2

Find the last three digits of the product of the positive roots of

## Problem 3

Starting at an object moves in the coordinate plane via a sequence of steps, each of length one. Each step is left, right, up, or down, all four equally likely. Let be the probability that the object reaches in six or fewer steps. Given that can be written in the form where and are relatively prime positive integers, find

## Problem 4

Circles of radius and are externally tangent to each other and are internally tangent to a circle of radius . The circle of radius has a chord that is a common external tangent of the other two circles. Find the square of the length of this chord.
