26. Kevin will start with the integers 1, 2, 3 and 4 each used exactly

once and written in a row in any order. Then he will fnd the sum

of the adjacent pairs of integers in each row to make a new row,

until one integer is left. For example, if he starts with 3, 2, 1,

4, and then takes sums to get 5, 3, 5, followed by 8, 8, he ends

with the fnal sum 16. Including all of Kevin’s possible starting

arrangements of the integers 1, 2, 3 and 4, how many possible

fnal sums are there?

27. A rectangular band formation is a formation with m band members

in each of r rows, where m and r are integers. A particular band

has less than 100 band members. The director arranges them in

a rectangular formation and fnds that he has two members left

over. If he increases the number of members in each row by 1 and

reduces the number of rows by 2, there are exactly enough places

in the new formation for each band member. What is the largest

number of members the band could have?

28. A right cylinder with a base radius of 3 units is inscribed in a

sphere of radius 5 units. What is the total volume, in cubic units,

of the space inside the sphere and outside the cylinder? Express

your answer as a common fraction in terms of �.

30. An o-Pod MP3 player stores and plays entire songs. Celeste has

10 songs stored on her o-Pod. The time length of each song is

different. When the songs are ordered by length, the shortest song

is only 30 seconds long and each subsequent song is 30 seconds

longer than the previous song. Her favorite song is 3 minutes, 30

seconds long. The o-Pod will play all the songs in random order

before repeating any song. What is the probability that she hears

the frst 4 minutes, 30 seconds of music - there are no pauses

between songs - without hearing every second of her favorite

song? Express your answer as a common fraction.
