Problems 8, 9 and 10 use the data found in the accompanying paragraph and figures

Four friends, Art, Roger, Paul and Trisha, bake cookies, and all cookies have the same thickness. The shapes of the cookies differ, as shown.

Art's cookies are trapezoids:

Roger's cookies are rectangles:

Paul's cookies are parallelograms:

Trisha's cookies are triangles:

## Problem 8

Who gets the fewest cookies from one batch of cookie dough?

## Problem 9

Each friend uses the same amount of dough, and Art makes exactly cookies. Art's cookies sell for cents each. To earn the same amount from a single batch, how much should one of Roger's cookies cost in cents?

## Problem 10

How many cookies will be in one batch of Trisha's cookies?

## Problem 11

## Problem 12

When a fair six-sided die is tossed on a table top, the bottom face cannot be seen. What is the probability that the product of the numbers on the five faces that can be seen is divisible by 6?

## Problem 13

Fourteen white cubes are put together to form the fi�gure on the right. The complete surface of the �figure, including the bottom, is painted red. The �figure is then separated into individual cubes. How many of the individual cubes have exactly four red faces?

## Problem 14

In this addition problem, each letter stands for a different digit. $\setlength{\tabcolsep}{0.5mm}\begin{array}{cccc}&T & W & O\\ \plus{} &T & W & O\\ \hline F& O & U & R\end{array}$ (Error compiling LaTeX. ! Undefined control sequence.) If T = 7 and the letter O represents an even number, what is the only possible value for W?
