General Practice Test

1. (13 p.)
A right circular cylinder has a diameter 12. Two plane cut the cylinder, the first perpendicular to the axis and the second at a \( 45^o \) angle to the first, so that the line of intersection of the two planes touches the cylinder at a single point. The two cuts remove a wedge from the cylinder. If \( V \) is the volume of the wedge calculate \( V/\pi \).

2. (3 p.)
\( n \) is an integer between 100 and 999 inclusive, and \( n^{\prime} \) is the integer formed by reversing the digits of \( n \). How many possible values are for \( |n-n^{\prime}| \)?

3. (27 p.)
If the corresponding terms of two arithmetic progressions are multiplied we get the sequence 1440, 1716, 1848, ... . Find the eighth term of this sequence.

4. (37 p.)
The right circular cone has height 4 and its base radius is 3. Its surface is painted black. The cone is cut into two parts by a plane parallel to the base, so that the volume of the top part (the small cone) divided by the volume of the bottom part equals \( k \) and painted area of the top part divided by the painted are of the bottom part also equals \( k \). If \( k \) is of the form \( p/q \) for two relatively prime numbers \( p \) and \( q \), calculate \( p+q \).

5. (17 p.)
Two students Alice and Bob participated in a two-day math contest. At the end both had attempted questions worth 500 points. Alice scored 160 out of 300 attempted on the first day and 140 out of 200 attempted on the second day, so her two-day success ratio was 300/500 = 3/5. Bob’s scores are different from Alice’s (but with the same two-day total). Bob had a positive integer score on each day. However, for each day Bob’s success ratio was less than Alice’s. Assume that \( p/q \) (\( p \) and \( q \) are relatively prime integers) is the largest possible two-day success ratio that Bob could have achieved. Calculate \( p+q \).
