Problem 1
The AIME Triathlon consists of a halfmile swim, a 30mile bicycle ride, and an eightmile 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 4
In the array of squares shown below, squares are colored red, and the remaining squares are colored blue. If one of all possible such colorings is chosen at random, the probability that the chosen colored array appears the same when rotated around the central square is , where is a positive integer. Find .
Problem 5
The real root of the equation can be written in the form , where , , and are positive integers. Find .
Problem 6
Melinda has three empty boxes and textbooks, three of which are mathematics textbooks. One box will hold any three of her textbooks, one will hold any four of her textbooks, and one will hold any five of her textbooks. If Melinda packs her textbooks into these boxes in random order, the probability that all three mathematics textbooks end up in the same box can be written as , where and are relatively prime positive integers. Find .
Problem 7
A rectangular box has width inches, length inches, and height inches, where and are relatively prime positive integers. Three faces of the box meet at a corner of the box. The center points of those three faces are the vertices of a triangle with an area of square inches. Find .
Problem 8

Problem 11
Ms. Math's kindergarten class has 16 registered students. The classroom has a very large number, N, of play blocks which satisfies the conditions:
(a) If 16, 15, or 14 students are present in the class, then in each case all the blocks can be distributed in equal numbers to each student, and
(b) There are three integers such that when , , or students are present and the blocks are distributed in equal numbers to each student, there are exactly three blocks left over.
Find the sum of the distinct prime divisors of the least possible value of N satisfying the above conditions.
