Problem 1
Michael is celebrating his fifteenth birthday today. How many Sundays have there been in his lifetime?
Problem 2
Evaluate
Problem 3
Find the sum of all the prime numbers less than 100 which are one more than a multiple of six.
Problem 4
At the beginning of each hour from 1 o’clock AM to 12 NOON and from 1 o’clock PM to 12 MIDNIGHT a coo-coo clock’s coo-coo bird coo-coos the number of times equal to the number of the hour. In addition, the coo-coo clock’s coo-coo bird coo-coos a single time at 30 minutes
past each hour. How many times does the coo-coo bird coo-coo from 12:42 PM on Monday until 3:42 AM on Wednesday？
Problem 5
The sizes of the freshmen class and the sophomore class are in the ratio 5:4. The sizes of the sophomore class and the junior class are in the ratio 7:8. The sizes of the junior class and the senior class are in the ratio 9:7. If these four classes together have a total of 2158 students, how many of the students are freshmen?
Problem 6
We draw a radius of a circle. We draw a second radius 23 degrees clockwise from the first radius. We draw a third radius 23 degrees clockwise from the second. This continues until we have drawn 40 radii each 23 degrees clockwise from the one before it. What is the measure in degrees of the smallest angle between any two of these 40 radii?

Problem 13
An equilateral triangle with side length 6 has a square of side length 6 attached to each of its edges as shown. The distance between the two farthest vertices of this figure (marked A and B in the figure) can be written as where m and n are positive integers. Find m + n.

Problem 14
The rodent control task force went into the woods one day and caught 200 rabbits and 18 squirrels. The next day they went into the woods and caught 3 fewer rabbits and two more squirrels than the day before. Each day they went into the woods and caught 3 fewer rabbits and two more squirrels than the day before. This continued through the day when they caught more squirrels than rabbits. Up through that day how many rabbits did they catch in all?
Problem 15
A concrete sewer pipe fitting is shaped like a cylinder with diameter 48 with a cone on top. A cylindrical hole of diameter 30 is bored all the way through the center of the fitting as shown. The cylindrical portion has height 60 while the conical top portion has height 20. Find N such that the volume of the concrete is Nπ .
