Problem 1

Problem 2

Okestima is reading a $150$ page book. He reads a page every $\frac{2}{3}$ minutes, and he pauses $3$ minutes when he reaches the end of page 90 to take a break. He does not read at all during the break. After, he comes back with food and this slows down his reading speed. He reads one page in $2$ minutes. If he starts to read at $2:30$, when does he finish the book?

$\textbf{(A)} ~4:33 \qquad\textbf{(B)} ~5:30 \qquad\textbf{(C)} ~5:33 \qquad\textbf{(D)} ~6:30 \qquad\textbf{(E)} ~7:33$

Problem 4

Stiskwey wrote all the possible permutations of the letters $AABBCCCD$ ($AABBCCCD$ is different from $AABBCCDC$). How many such permutations are there?

$\textbf{(A)} ~420 \qquad\textbf{(B)} ~630 \qquad\textbf{(C)} ~840 \qquad\textbf{(D)} ~1680 \qquad\textbf{(E)} ~5040$


Problem 5

Problem 6

A worker cuts a piece of wire into two pieces. The two pieces, $A$ and $B$, enclose an equilateral triangle and a square with equal area, respectively. The ratio of the length of $B$ to the length of $A$ can be expressed as $a\sqrt[b]{c}:d$ in the simplest form. Find $a+b+c+d$.

Problem 8

In the morning, Mr.Gavin always uses his alarm to wake him up. The alarm is special. It always rings in a cycle of ten rings. The first ring lasts $1$ second, and each ring after lasts twice the time than the previous ring. Given that Mr.Gavin has an equal probability of waking up at any time, what is the probability that Mr.Gavin wakes up and end the alarm during the tenth ring?

$\textbf{(A)} ~0 \qquad\textbf{(B)} ~6 \qquad\textbf{(C)} ~7 \qquad\textbf{(D)} ~8 \qquad\textbf{(E)} ~19$


Problem 14

James randomly choose an ordered pair $(x,y)$ which both $x$ and $y$ are elements in the set $\{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15\}$, $x$ and $y$ are not necessarily distinct, and all of the equations: $x+y$, $x^2+y^2$, $x^4+y^4$ are divisible by $5$. Find the probability that James can do so.
