## Problem 5

Each of two boxes contains both black and white marbles, and the total number of marbles in the two boxes is One marble is taken out of each box randomly. The probability that both marbles are black is and the probability that both marbles are white is where and are relatively prime positive integers. What is ?

## Problem 6

## Problem 8

A container in the shape of a right circular cone is 12 inches tall and its base has a 5-inch radius. The liquid that is sealed inside is 9 inches deep when the cone is held with its point down and its base horizontal. When the liquid is held with its point up and its base horizontal, the liquid is where and are positive integers and is not divisible by the cube of any prime number. Find .

## Problem 9

## Problem 10

A sequence of numbers has the property that, for every integer between and inclusive, the number is less than the sum of the other numbers. Given that where and are relatively prime positive integers, find .

## Problem 11

Let be the sum of all numbers of the form where and are relatively prime positive divisors of What is the greatest integer that does not exceed ?

## Problem 12

holds for all real what is the largest number of different values that can appear in the list ?

## Problem 13

In the middle of a vast prairie, a firetruck is stationed at the intersection of two perpendicular straight highways. The truck travels at miles per hour along the highways and at miles per hour across the prairie. Consider the set of points that can be reached by the firetruck within six minutes. The area of this region is square miles, where and are relatively prime positive integers. Find .

## Problem 14

In triangle it is given that angles and are congruent. Points and lie on and respectively, so that Angle is times as large as angle where is a positive real number. Find the greatest integer that does not exceed .

## Problem 15

A stack of cards is labelled with the integers from to with different integers on different cards. The cards in the stack are not in numerical order. The top card is removed from the stack and placed on the table, and the next card is moved to the bottom of the stack. The new top card is removed from the stack and placed on the table, to the right of the card already there, and the next card in the stack is moved to the bottom of the stack. The process - placing the top card to the right of the cards already on the table and moving the next card in the stack to the bottom of the stack - is repeated until all cards are on the table. It is found that, reading from left to right, the labels on the cards are now in ascending order: In the original stack of cards, how many cards were above the card labeled 1999?
