## Problem 8

Figures $0$, $1$, $2$, and $3$ consist of $1$, $5$, $13$, and $25$ non-overlapping squares. If the pattern continued, how many non-overlapping squares would there be in figure $100$? $\text {(A)}10401 \qquad \text {(B)}19801 \qquad \text {(C)} 20201 \qquad \text {(D)} 39801 \qquad \text {(E)}40801$

## Problem 9

Mrs. Walter gave an exam in a mathematics class of five students. She entered the scores in random order into a spreadsheet, which recalculated the class average after each score was entered. Mrs. Walter noticed that after each score was entered, the average was always an integer. The scores (listed in ascending order) were 71,76,80,82, and 91. What was the last score Mrs. Walters entered? $\text{(A)} \ 71 \qquad \text{(B)} \ 76 \qquad \text{(C)} \ 80 \qquad \text{(D)} \ 82 \qquad \text{(E)} \ 91$

## Problem 10

The point $P = (1,2,3)$ is reflected in the $xy$-plane, then its image $Q$ is rotated by $180^\circ$ about the $x$-axis to produce $R$, and finally, $R$ is translated by 5 units in the positive- $y$ direction to produce $S$. What are the coordinates of $S$? $\text {(A) } (1,7, - 3) \qquad \text {(B) } ( - 1,7, - 3) \qquad \text {(C) } ( - 1, - 2,8) \qquad \text {(D) } ( - 1,3,3) \qquad \text {(E) } (1,3,3)$

## Problem 13

One morning each member of Angela’s family drank an 8-ounce mixture of coffee with milk. The amounts of coffee and milk varied from cup to cup, but were never zero. Angela drank a quarter of the total amount of milk and a sixth of the total amount of coffee. How many people are in the family? $\text {(A)}\ 3 \qquad \text {(B)}\ 4 \qquad \text {(C)}\ 5 \qquad \text {(D)}\ 6 \qquad \text {(E)}\ 7$

## Problem 14

When the mean, median, and mode of the list $$10,2,5,2,4,2,x$$

are arranged in increasing order, they form a non-constant arithmetic progression. What is the sum of all possible real values of $x$? $\text {(A)}\ 3 \qquad \text {(B)}\ 6 \qquad \text {(C)}\ 9 \qquad \text {(D)}\ 17 \qquad \text {(E)}\ 20$ Solution

## Problem 15

## Problem 21

Through a point on the hypotenuse of a right triangle, lines are drawn parallel to the legs of the triangle so that the triangle is divided into a square and two smaller right triangles. The area of one of the two small right triangles is $m$ times the area of the square. The ratio of the area of the other small right triangle to the area of the square is $\text {(A)}\ \frac{1}{2m+1} \qquad \text {(B)}\ m \qquad \text {(C)}\ 1-m \qquad \text {(D)}\ \frac{1}{4m} \qquad \text {(E)}\ \frac{1}{8m^2}$

## Problem 23

Professor Gamble buys a lottery ticket, which requires that he pick six different integers from $1$ through $46$, inclusive. He chooses his numbers so that the sum of the base-ten logarithms of his six numbers is an integer. It so happens that the integers on the winning ticket have the same property— the sum of the base-ten logarithms is an integer. What is the probability that Professor Gamble holds the winning ticket? $\text {(A)}\ 1/5 \qquad \text {(B)}\ 1/4 \qquad \text {(C)}\ 1/3 \qquad \text {(D)}\ 1/2 \qquad \text {(E)}\ 1$
