Problem 23

Jack and Jill are playing a chance game. They take turns alternately rolling a fair six sided die labeled with the integers 1 through 6 as usual (fair meaning the numbers appear with equal probability.) Jack wins if a prime number appears when he rolls, while Jill wins if when she rolls a number greater than 1 appears. The game terminates as soon as one of them has won. If Jack rolls first in a game, then the probability of that Jill wins the game can be expressed as $\tfrac mn$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Compute $m+n$.

Solution

Problem 33

Six students sit in a group and chat during a complicated mathematical lecture. The professor, annoyed by the chatter, splits the group into two or more smaller groups. However, the smaller groups with at least two members continue to produce chatter, so the professor again chooses one noisy group and splits it into smaller groups. This process continues until the professor achieves the silence he needs to teach Algebraic Combinatorics. Suppose the procedure can be carried out in $N$ ways, where the order of group breaking matters (if A and B are disjoint groups, then breaking up group A and then B is considered different form breaking up group B and then A even if the resulting partitions are identical) and where a group of students is treated as an unordered set of people. Compute the remainder obtained when $N$ is divided by $2006$.

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$. When properly sorted, $T  -  35$ math books on a shelf are arranged in alphabetical order from left to right. An eager student checked out and read all of them. Unfortunately, the student did not realize how the books were sorted, and so after finishing the student put the books back on the shelf in a random order. If all arrangements are equally likely, the probability that exactly $6$ of the books were returned to their correct (original) position can be expressed as $\frac{m}{n}$, where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Compute $m  +  n$.

Solution

Problem 42

Problem U4

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$. As $n$ ranges over the integers, the expression $n^4  -  898n^2  +  T  -  2160$ evaluates to just one prime number. Find this prime.

Solution

Problem U5

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$, and let $S$ be the sum of the digits of $T$. In triangle $ABC$, points $D$, $E$, and $F$ are the feet of the angle bisectors of $\angle A$, $\angle B$, $\angle C$ respectively. Let point $P$ be the intersection of segments $AD$ and $BE$, and let $p$ denote the perimeter of $ABC$. If $AP  =  3PD$, $BE  =  S  -  1$, and $CF  =  9$, then the value of $\frac{AD}{p}$ can be expressed uniquely as $\frac{\sqrt{m}}{n}$ where $m$ and $n$ are positive integers such that $m$ is not divisible by the square of any prime. Find $m  +  n$.

Solution

Problem U6

Let $T = TNFTPP$. $x$ and $y$ are nonzero real numbers such that

\[18x - 4x^2 + 2x^3 - 9y - 10xy - x^2y + Ty^2 + 2xy^2 - y^3 = 0\]

The smallest possible value of $\frac{y}{x}$ is equal to $\frac{m}{n}$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Find $m+n$.

Solution

Problem U7

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$. Triangle $ABC$ has integer side lengths, including $BC  =  100T  -  4$, and a right angle, $\angle ABC$. Let $r$ and $s$ denote the inradius and semiperimeter of $ABC$ respectively. Find the perimeter of the triangle ABC which minimizes $\frac{s}{r}$.

Solution

Problem 43

Problem U8

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$, and let $S$ be the sum of the digits of $T$. Cyclic quadrilateral $ABCD$ has side lengths $AB  =  S  -  11$, $BC  =  2$, $CD  =  3$, and $DA  =  10$. Let $M$ and $N$ be the midpoints of sides $AD$ and $BC$. The diagonals $AC$ and $BD$ intersect $MN$ at $P$ and $Q$ respectively. $\frac{PQ}{MN}$ can be expressed as $\frac{m}{n}$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Determine $m  +  n$.

Solution

Problem U9

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$. Determine the number of 5 element subsets $S$ of $\{1,2,3, \cdots ,T  +  100\}$ such that the sum of the elements of $S$ is divisible by 5.

Solution

Problem U10

Let $T  =  TNFTPP$ and let $S$ be the sum of the digits of $T$. Point $P$ in the interior of triangle $ABC$ satisfies $AP  =  S  +  51$, $BP  =  156$, and $CP  =  169$. If the sides of ABC satisfy

\[\frac{BC}{13} = \frac{CA}{14} = \frac{AB}{15}\]

then the area of triangle $ABC$ can be expressed as $\frac{m}{n}$, where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers. Compute the remainder obtained when $m  +  n$ is divided by $2006$.

Recall that you are turning in the sum of all ten answers, NOT the answer to this problem.
