Mare, in organizarea Centrului de Pregatire a Concursurilor :colare de la Departamentul de

Matematica si Informatica, in colaborare cu Inspectoratul Scolar Judetean (inspector de

specialitate profesor Gheorge Maiorescu).

In acest an au fost admisi, pe baza rezultatelor la concursurile de matematica din anul

precedent si a rezultatelor din anii anteriori la concursurile AMC, 50 de elevi din clasele

VIII-XII, provenind de la mai multe licee din judet. Profesor dr. Vasile Berinde a reamintit

faptul ca fiecare dintre competitii cere rezolvarea in 75 minute a 25 de probleme tip grila,

formulate in limba engleza. La fiecare problema elevii trebuie sa aleaga raspunsul corect

din 5 variante posibile. Pentru fiecare raspuns corect se acorda cate 6 puncte, pentru

fiecare problema la care nu a fost ales un raspuns se acorda 2,5 puncte, iar pentru un

raspuns gresit se acorda 0 puncte. Un elev poate obtine asadar cel mult 150 puncte.

Problem 4

A book that is to be recorded onto compact discs takes minutes to read aloud.

Each disc can hold up to minutes of reading. Assume that the smallest possible

number of discs is used and that each disc contains the same length of reading. How

many minutes of reading will each disc contain?

Solution

Assuming that there were fractions of compact discs, it would take

CDs to have equal reading time. However, since the number of discs can only be a

whole number, there are at least 8 CDs, in which case it would have

minutes on each of the 8 discs. The answer is

Problem 5

The area of a circle whose circumference is is . What is the value of ?

Problem 7

Crystal has a running course marked out for her daily run. She starts this run by

heading due north for one mile. She then runs northeast for one mile, then southeast

for one mile. The last portion of her run takes her on a straight line back to where

she started. How far, in miles is this last portion of her run?

Solution

Crystal first runs North for one mile. Changing directions, she runs Northeast for

another mile. The angle difference between North and Northeast is 45 degrees. She

then switches directions to Southeast, meaning a 90 degree angle change. The

distance now from travelling North for one mile, and her current destination is

miles, because it is the hypotenuse of a 45-45-90 triangle with side length one

(mile). Therefore, Crystal's distance from her starting position, x, is equal

to , which is equal to . The answer is

Problem 8

Tony works hours a day and is paid $ per hour for each full year of his age.

During a six month period Tony worked days and earned $ . How old was Tony

at the end of the six month period?

Solution

Tony worked hours a day and is paid dollars per hour for each full year of his

age. This basically says that he gets a dollar for each year of his age. So if he is

years old, he gets dollars a day. We also know that he worked days and

earned dollars. If he was years old at the beginning of his working period, he

would have earned dollars. If he was years old at the beginning of his

working period, he would have earned dollars. Because he earned

dollars, we know that he was for some period of time, but not the whole time,

because then the money earned would be greater than or equal to . This is why he

was when he began, but turned sometime in the middle and earned dollars

in total. So the answer is .The answer is . We could find out for how long he

was and . . Then is and we know that he was

for days, and for days. Thus, the answer is .

There are 365 days in a non-leap year. There are 7 days in a week. Since 365 = 52 *

7 + 1 (or 365 is congruent to 1 mod 7), the same date (after February) moves

"forward" one day in the subsequent year, if that year is not a leap year.

However, a leap year has 366 days, and 366 = 52 * 7 + 2. So the same date (after

February) moves "forward"two days in the subsequent year, if that year is a leap

year.

You can keep count forward to find that the first time this date falls on a Saturday is

in 2017:

meters high, and the top portion is a sphere that holds 100,000 liters of water.

Logan's miniature water tower holds 0.1 liters. How tall, in meters, should Logan

make his tower?

Solution

The water tower holds times more water than Logan's miniature.

Therefore, Logan should make his tower times shorter than the actual

tower. This is meters high, or choice .

Problem13

Angelina drove at an average rate of kph and then stopped minutes for gas.

After the stop, she drove at an average rate of kph. Altogether she drove km

in a total trip time of hours including the stop. Which equation could be used to

solve for the time in hours that she drove before her stop?

The answer is because she drove at kmh for hours (the amount of time before

the stop), and 100 kmh for because she wasn't driving for minutes, or

hours. Multiplying by gives the total distance, which is kms. Therefore, the

answer is

Problem15

In a magical swamp there are two species of talking amphibians: toads, whose

statements are always true, and frogs, whose statements are always false. Four

amphibians, Brian, Chris, LeRoy, and Mike live together in this swamp, and they

make the following statements.

Solution

Solution 1

We can begin by first looking at Chris and LeRoy.

Suppose Chris and LeRoy are the same species. If Chris is a toad, then what he says

is true, so LeRoy is a frog. However, if LeRoy is a frog, then he is lying, but clearly

Chris is not a frog, and we have a contradiction. The same applies if Chris is a frog.

Clearly, Chris and LeRoy are different species, and so we have at least frog out of

the two of them.

Now suppose Mike is a toad. Then what he says is true because we already have

toads. However, if Brian is a frog, then he is lying, yet his statement is true, a

contradiction. If Brian is a toad, then what he says is true, but once again it conflicts

with his statement, resulting in contradiction.

Therefore, Mike must be a frog. His statement must be false, which means that there

is at most toad. Since either Chris or LeRoy is already a toad, Brain must be a frog.

We can also verify that his statement is indeed false.

Both Mike and Brian are frogs, and one of either Chris or LeRoy is a frog, so we

have frogs total.

Solution 2

Start with Brian. If he is a toad, he tells the truth, hence Mike is a frog. If Brian is a

frog, he lies, hence Mike is a frog, too. Thus Mike must be a frog.

As Mike is a frog, his statement is false, hence there is at most one toad.

As there is at most one toad, at least one of Chris and LeRoy is a frog. But then the

other one tells the truth, and therefore is a toad.

Problem 16

Nondegenerate has integer side lengths, is an angle bisector, ,

and . What is the smallest possible value of the perimeter?

Solution

By the Angle Bisector Theorem, we know that . If we use the lowest

possible integer values for AB and BC (the measures of AD and DC, respectively),

then , contradicting theTriangle Inequality. If we use the

next lowest values ( and ), the Triangle Inequality is satisfied.

Therefore, our answer is , or choice

Problem 17

A solid cube has side length 3 inches. A 2-inch by 2-inch square hole is cut into the

center of each face. The edges of each cut are parallel to the edges of the cube, and

each hole goes all the way through the cube. What is the volume, in cubic inches, of

the remaining solid?

Solution

Solution 1

Imagine making the cuts one at a time. The first cut removes a box . The

second cut removes two boxes, each of dimensions , and the third cut does

the same as the second cut, on the last two faces. Hence the total volume of all cuts

is .

Therefore the volume of the rest of the cube is .

Solution 2

We can use Principle of Inclusion-Exclusion to find the final volume of the cube.

There are 3 "cuts" through the cube that go from one end to the other. Each of these

"cuts" has cubic inches. However, we can not just sum their volumes, as

the central cube is included in each of these three cuts. To get the correct

result, we can take the sum of the volumes of the three cuts, and subtract the

volume of the central cube twice.

Hence the total volume of the cuts is .

Therefore the volume of the rest of the cube is .

Solution 3

We can visualize the final figure and see a cubic frame. We can find the volume of the

figure by adding up the volumes of the edges and corners.

Each edge can be seen as a box, and each corner can be seen as

a box.

.

Problem18

Bernardo randomly picks 3 distinct numbers from the set and

arranges them in descending order to form a 3-digit number. Silvia randomly picks 3

distinct numbers from the set and also arranges them in descending

order to form a 3-digit number. What is the probability that Bernardo's number is

larger than Silvia's number?

Solution

We can solve this by breaking the problem down into cases and adding up the

probabilities.

Case : Bernardo picks . If Bernardo picks a then it is guaranteed that his number

will be larger than Silvia's. The probability that he will pick a is .

Case : Bernardo does not pick . Since the chance of Bernardo picking is , the

If Bernardo does not pick 9, then he can pick any number from to . Since Bernardo

is picking from the same set of numbers as Silvia, the probability that Bernardo's

number is larger is equal to the probability that Silvia's number is larger.

Ignoring the for now, the probability that they will pick the same number is the

number of ways to pick Bernardo's 3 numbers divided by the number of ways to pick

any 3 numbers.

We get this probability to be

Problem19

Equiangular hexagon has side lengths

and . The area of is of the area of the hexagon. What

is the sum of all possible values of ?

Solution

It is clear that is an equilateral triangle. From the Law of Cosines, we get

that . Therefore, the area of

is .

and and meet at , we find that hexagon is formed by taking

equilateral triangle of side length and removing three equilateral

triangles, , and , of side length . The area of is therefore

A fly trapped inside a cubical box with side length meter decides to relieve its

boredom by visiting each corner of the box. It will begin and end in the same corner

and visit each of the other corners exactly once. To get from a corner to any other

corner, it will either fly or crawl in a straight line. What is the maximum possible

length, in meters, of its path?

Problem21

The polynomial has three positive integer zeros. What is the

smallest possible value of ?

Solution

By Vieta's Formulas, we know that is the sum of the three roots of the

polynomial . Also, 2010 factors into . But, since there

are only three roots to the polynomial, two of the four prime factors must be

multiplied so that we are left with three roots. To minimize , and should be

multiplied, which means will be and the answer is .

Problem22

Eight points are chosen on a circle, and chords are drawn connecting every pair of

points. No three chords intersect in a single point inside the circle. How many

triangles with all three vertices in the interior of the circle are created?

Solution

To choose a chord, we know that two points must be chosen. This implies that for

three chords to create a triangle and not intersect at a single point, six points need to

be chosen. Therefore, the answer is which is equivalent to 28,

Problem23

Each of boxes in a line contains a single red marble, and for , the box

in the position also contains white marbles. Isabella begins at the first box and

successively draws a single marble at random from each box, in order. She stops

when she first draws a red marble. Let be the probability that Isabella stops

after drawing exactly marbles. What is the smallest value of for which

Solution

The probability of drawing a white marble from box is . The probability of

It is then easy to see that the lowest integer value of that satisfies the inequality

is .

If we divide by by taking out all the factors of in , we can write as

the number with all its factors of 5 removed. Specifically, every number in the

form is replaced by , and every number in the form is replaced by .
