General Practice Test

1. (46 p.)
It is given that \( 181^2 \) can be written as the difference of the cubes of two consecutive positive integers. Find the sum of these two integers.

2. (6 p.)
Let \( S \) be the set of vertices of a unit cube. Find the number of triangles whose vertices belong to \( S \).

3. (34 p.)
In a tournament club \( C \) plays 6 matches, and for each match the probabilities of a win, draw and loss are equal. If the probability that \( C \) finishes with more wins than losses is \( \frac pq \) with \( p \) and \( q \) coprime \( (q>0) \), find \( p+q \).

4. (3 p.)
The square \( \begin{array}{|c|c|c|} \hline x&20&151 \\\hline 38 & & \\ \hline & & \\ \hline\end{array} \) is magic, i.e. in each cell there is a number so that the sums of each row and column and of the two main diagonals are all equal. Find \( x \).

5. (9 p.)
Let \( S = \{1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34\} \). Find the sum \( \sum \max(A) \) where the sum is taken over all 28 two-element subsets \( A \) of \( S \).
