1. How many positive three-digit integers abc can represent a valid date in 2013, where either a

corresponds to a month and bc corresponds to the day in that month or ab corresponds to a

month and c corresponds to the day? For example, 202 is a valid representation for February

2nd, and 121 could represent either January 21st or December 1st.

2. Consider the numbers {24, 27, 55, 64, x}. Given that the mean of these five numbers is prime

and the median is a multiple of 3, compute the sum of all possible positive integral values of x.

3. Nick has a terrible sleep schedule. He randomly picks a time between 4 AM and 6 AM to fall

asleep, and wakes up at a random time between 11 AM and 1 PM of the same day. What is the

probability that Nick gets at least 6 hours of sleep?

4. Given the digits 1 through 7, one can form 7! = 5040 numbers by forming different permutations

of the 7 digits (for example, 1234567 and 6321475 are two such permutations). If the 5040

numbers obtained are then placed in ascending order what is the 2013th number?

5. An unfair coin lands heads with probability 17

and tails with probability 16

17 . Matt flips the coin

repeatedly until he flips at least one head and at least one tail. What is the expected number

of times that Matt flips the coin?

6. A positive integer b 2 is neat if and only if there exist positive base-b digits x and y (that is,

x and y are integers and 0 < x, y < b) such that the number x.y base b (that is, x + yb ) is an

integer multiple of x/y. Find the number of neat integers less than or equal to 100.

7. Robin is playing notes on an 88-key piano. He starts by playing middle C, which is the 40th

lowest note on the piano. After playing a note, Robin plays with probability 12 the lowest note

that is higher than the note he just played, and with probability 12 the highest note that is lower

than the note he just played. What is the probability that he plays the highest note on the

piano before playing the lowest note?

8. Big candles cost 16 cents and burn for exactly 16 minutes. Small candles cost 7 cents and

burn for exactly 7 minutes. The candles burn at possibly varying and unknown rates, so it is

impossible to predictably modify the amount of time for which a candle will burn except by

burning it down for a known amount of time. Candles may be arbitrarily and instantly put out

and relit. Compute the cost in cents of the cheapest set of big and small candles you need to

measure exactly 1 minute.

9. Farmer John owns 2013 cows. Some cows are enemies of each other, and Farmer John wishes

to divide them into as few groups as possible such that each cow has at most 3 enemies in her

group. Each cow has at most 61 enemies. What is the minimal G such that, no matter which

enemies they have, the cows can always be divided into at most G such groups?

10. Compute the number of positive integers b where b 2013, b 6= 17, and b 6= 18 such that there

N

N

exists some positive integer N such that 17

is a perfect 17th power, 18

is a perfect 18th power,

N

and b is a perfect bth power.
