Problem 1

The AIME Triathlon consists of a half-mile swim, a 30-mile bicycle ride, and an eight-mile run. Tom swims, bicycles, and runs at constant rates. He runs fives times as fast as he swims, and he bicycles twice as fast as he runs. Tom completes the AIME Triathlon in four and a quarter hours. How many minutes does he spend bicycling?


Problem 2

Find the number of five-digit positive integers, $n$, that satisfy the following conditions:

    (a) the number $n$ is divisible by $5,$
    (b) the first and last digits of $n$ are equal, and
    (c) the sum of the digits of $n$ is divisible by $5.$


Problem 3

Let $ABCD$ be a square, and let $E$ and $F$ be points on $\overline{AB}$ and $\overline{BC},$ respectively. The line through $E$ parallel to $\overline{BC}$ and the line through $F$ parallel to $\overline{AB}$ divide $ABCD$ into two squares and two nonsquare rectangles. The sum of the areas of the two squares is $\frac{9}{10}$ of the area of square $ABCD.$ Find $\frac{AE}{EB} + \frac{EB}{AE}.$


Problem 4

Problem 5

The real root of the equation $8x^3-3x^2-3x-1=0$ can be written in the form $\frac{\sqrt[3]{a}+\sqrt[3]{b}+1}{c}$, where $a$, $b$, and $c$ are positive integers. Find $a+b+c$.
