23. Manny has three ways to travel the 8 kilometres from home to work: driving his car takes 12 minutes, riding his bike takes 24 minutes and walking takes 1 hour and 44 minutes. He wants to know how to get to work as quickly as possible in the event that he is riding his bike and gets a flat tyre.
He has three strategies:
(i) If he is close to home, walk back home and then drive his car. (ii) If he is close to work, just walk the rest of the way.
(iii) For some intermediate distances, spend 20 minutes fixing the tyre and then continue riding his bike.
He knows there are two locations along the route to work where the strategy should change. How far apart are they?
24. Out of modern musical theory comes the following question. Twelve points are equally spaced around a circle. Three points are to be joined to make a triangle.
We count two triangles as being the same only if they match perfectly after rotating, but not reflecting. For instance, the two triangles shown are the same.
How many different triangles can be made?
(A) 10 (B) 14 (C) 19 (D) 20 (E) 22
25. A circular coin of radius 1 cm rolls around the inside of a square without slipping, always touching the boundary of the square.
When it returns to where it started, the coin has performed exactly one whole revolution.
In centimetres, what is the side length of the square?
(A) π (B) 3.5 (C) 1 + π (D) 4 (E) 2 + π
For questions 26 to 30, shade the answer as an integer from 0 to 999 in the space provided on the answer sheet.
Questions 26–30 are worth 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 marks, respectively.
26. A positive whole number is called stable if at least one of its digits has the same value as its position in the number. For example, 78247 is stable because a 4 appears in the 4th position. How many stable 3-digit numbers are there?
27. When I divide an integer by 15, the remainder is an integer from 0 to 14. When I divide an integer by 27, the remainder is an integer from 0 to 26.
For instance, if the integer is 100 then the remainders are 10 and 19, which are different.
How many integers from 1 to 1000 leave the same remainders after division by 15 and after division by 27?
then multiplied, the result is 5 × 7 = 35, equal to the original number.
Find the sum of all two-digit numbers such that when you increase both digits by 2, and then multiply these numbers, the product is equal to the original number.
29. The Leader of Zip decrees that the digit 0, since it represents nothing, will no longer be used in any counting number. Only counting numbers without 0 digits are allowed. So the counting numbers in Zip begin 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, . . . , where the tenth counting number is 11.
When you write out the first one thousand allowable counting numbers in Zip, what are the last three digits of the final number?
30. Antony the ant is at the top-left corner of this brick wall and needs to get to the bottom-right corner.
Because it is a hot day, he avoids the dark bricks and only walks on the cooler white mortar between the bricks and at the top and bottom of the wall.
There are 18 rows of bricks, each with 7 whole bricks and one half-brick in an alternating pattern.
How many different ways are there for Antony to walk to the opposite corner as quickly as possible?
