to Monday, January 21. In what year, will the next January 21st inauguration be held?

The 2009 inauguration is expected to see record levels of attendance. Lyndon B

Johnson’s inauguration currently holds the record for attendance at 1.2 million people.

Originally, attendance for the 2009 inauguration was projected to be as high as 5 million.

Now, based on more accurate data, the projected attendance is around 2 million. What is

the positive difference between the originally estimated percent increase over the current

record attendance and the newly estimated percent increase over the current record

attendance? Express your answer to the nearest whole number.

The National Mall is 300 acres. It stretches 1.9 miles from the Capitol building to the

Lincoln Memorial. This will be the first time in history that the entire mall will be open

for an inauguration. If attendance is the estimated 2 million people and all of the people

spread out evenly over the mall, how many square feet will each person get? Note that 1

acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

The minimum starting annual salary for rookies in the NFL is $295,000. The minimum

annual salary is $370,000 for second year players and $445,000 for third year players.

For a player earning the minimum salary for their experience, what is the positive

difference between the percent increase the $75,000 represents from the first to

second year and the percent increase the $75,000 represents from the second to third

year? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

There are 32 teams in the NFL. Sixteen of the teams are in the American Football

Conference (AFC) and the other 16 teams are in the National Football Conference

(NFC). At the beginning of the season, Julia tried to predict the teams that would be

in each conference's championship by randomly drawing 4 teams (2 AFC teams and 2

NFC teams) from a hat. What is the probability that the 4 teams she selected are the

same four teams that will be in the conferences' championships? Express your answer

as a common fraction.

In football, teams can score 6 points with a touchdown, 3 points with a field goal or 2

points with a safety. Additionally, after a touchdown, teams can score 1 bonus point

with a field goal kick or 2 bonus points with a 2-point conversion. The final score of a

particular football game was 13 to 11. If every touchdown is followed with a successful

bonus point attempt (1 or 2 points), how many different scoring combinations could

have resulted in the losing team's 11 points?

anniversary of the first official game of basketball. (Obama is an avid basketball fan.

Not only did he play regular games while campaigning, there is talk of installing a

basketball court in the White House.) Here are a few problems relating to our new

president’s favorite sport.

The first game of basketball was played with 9 players from each team on the court.

Today’s rules specify that only 5 players per team should be on the court. How many

combinations of 5 players can be created from a group of 9 players?

Originally played with a soccer ball, basketball did not get its own ball until the late

1950s. Based on the information below, how many cubic inches larger is the volume of

a modern basketball than the volume of a modern soccer ball? Express your answer as

a decimal to the nearest tenth.

Basketball ball circumference = 29.5 inches

**Interesting fact: Originally, passing was the only way to move the ball around the

court. Even after the introduction of dribbling, passing remained the primary means of

moving the ball because of the asymmetrical shape of early balls. With the improved

production of basketballs came the rise of dribbling.**

Not only have the rules of basketball changed over time, the dimensions of the court

have changed as well. It wasn’t until 1968 that a 3-point line became a regular part of

basketball. Today, the high schools and colleges set their 3-point line at 19 feet 9

inches away from the point directly below the center of the basket. The NBA on the

other hand, uses two lines that are parallel to, and three feet from, the side lines and

an arc that is 23 feet 9 inches from the point directly below the center of the basket

that intersects each of the other two lines. If a standard basketball court is 50 feet

wide and the point below the center of the hoop falls on the baseline, how many more

square feet are inside the NBA 3-point line than the high school/college three-point

line? Express your answer as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

The solutions to this week's problems will be posted in the archive on Monday, January

26th.

34,800,000 hits in 0.06 seconds. At this same rate, how many hits would be

produced in 1 second. Express your answer in scientific notation.

Interest in tickets to the 2009 Inauguration was so high that one ticket

broker asked $20,095 for a single ticket. The government printed a

quarter of a million tickets, intended to be freely given. If all were

given to individuals, one apiece, and 0.1% of those who received these

free tickets sold them for an average of $20,000 each, how much

money would they have generated?

The longest inaugural speech was given by Henry Harrison in 1841; it

was 8445 words. He spoke for 1 hour and 45 minutes, without a hat or

a coat, in a snow storm. (He caught pneumonia and passed away one

month later.) The shortest speech was George Washington’s second

inaugural address, which was only 135 words. Obama’s speech fell

somewhere in the middle, at 18 minutes 20 seconds and 2401 words.

What is the positive difference between the rate at which Obama

spoke and the rate at which Harrison spoke? Express your answer in

words per minute, as a decimal to the nearest tenth.

The solutions to this week's problems will be posted in the archive on Monday,

February 2nd.

February 2 is Groundhog Day. Every February 2, Punxsutawney Phil lumbers out of his

home to predict the end of winter by looking for his shadow. If Phil sees his shadow,

legend says that we will have 6 more weeks of winter. If the groundhog does NOT see

his shadow we will have an early spring.

According to the “official” Groundhog Day website, Punxsutawney Phil is 123 years

old. Normally, groundhogs live up to 6 years in the wild. If Phil is 123 years, by what

percent has he exceeded the normal, unaided lifespan of his species?

A groundhog is also known as a woodchuck. Diana writes the letters w,

o, o, d, c, h, u, c and k on separate pieces of paper and places the

pieces of paper in a bag. If Diana randomly draws one piece of paper

from the bag, what it the probability that the letter drawn is also

contained in the word groundhog? Express your answer as a common

fraction.

Groundhog Greg’s burrow has 5 holes he can enter or exit through. If

he never exits through the same hole he entered through, how many

entrance/exit combinations can Greg choose from? Note that entering

through A and leaving through B is not the same as entering through B

and leaving through A.
