Who can participate? Any student or sponsor associated with your chapter can help to solve the

problems. However, you may not consult alumni, parents, or any other humans outside of your

chapter. That being said, you may use the internet/calculators/books/etc., provided that you do

not get help from another human, which means something like asking a question on an internet

forum like Yahoo Answers is not be allowed.

How do we submit our answers? You must submit the answers using the answer document available

under the Downloads section of famat.org. Please download the answer sheet pdf, print single

sided, fill in your school (do not fill in the footer or any lines that say “For Grading Use Only”),

and handwrite your answers. Your school will turn in one answer sheet by Friday night of

the State Convention by 9 PM to the Convention Registration Desk (as stated on the State

Convention Letter). E-mailed submissions will not be accepted.

How do we dispute? Hello, FAMAT Student, we know that you love to dispute our tests. If you have

any questions or concerns about the test or if you have any issues using the answer document,

you may email 2017stateinterschool@famatdelegates.org during the testing period. We

will resolve your issues, if any clarifications must be made during the testing period, an errata will

be posted under Downloads and the FAMAT Student Organization Facebook Group.

A note on answer form: All answers must be exact unless otherwise stated. Stick to the generally

accepted answer forms (Rationalized denominators, simplified fractions and radicals, etc.). We

will accept equivalent answer forms within reason.

Math

1. (2 points) The axis of a right circular cylinder with radius 1 unit is centered on the x-axis, and

extends infinitely in both directions. A second right circular cylinder with radius 1 unit has an

axis centered on the y-axis, and extends infinitely in both directions. Find the volume of the

intersection of the two cylinders.

2. (2 points) Let L be the locus of points consisting of the circumferences of two circles each with

radius 1 unit that are tangent to each other. Find the area of the largest square that can be

constructed such that each of its 4 vertices is in L.

3. (2 points) Solve for the four digit number W XY Z (Where W, X, Y, Z are digits) that has the

property W XY Z = W X · Y Z .

4. (2 points) Find the least common multiple of the sum of the numbers that equal the factors they

each have, the sum of the numbers less than 1000 that equal the sum of their factors (besides

themselves), the sum of the numbers between 1 and 60 (non-inclusive) whose factors are relatively

prime, and the sum of the numbers less than 60 that are less than the sum of their factors (besides

themselves).

5. (2 point) Let integers a, b, c satisfy:

a+b+c≡3

2

2

a +b +c ≡9

(mod 4)

(mod 16)

Find all positive integers k such that

a3 + b3 + c3 ≡ 27

(mod k)

is always true.

6. (2 point) Robert was taking a test, and got an answer of 10 2 + 9 3 for question

√ #999.

√

However the question then continued: “If the answer can be written as a b + c d,

where a, b, c, d are integers, find a + b + c + d.” Most people would’ve answered 24;

however, Robert realized there was a great chance to dispute. Find the sum of every possible

distinct value of a + b + c + d.

7. (2 point) For some relatively prime semiprimes l, u, the number lul has 2028 positive integer

divisors, including 1 and the number lul . (In other words, d(lul ) = 2028.) Find the sum of the

distinct values d(2lu) may obtain.

8. (2 points) Jhin, Jen, and Jyn play the following game: Jhin chooses a number randomly from the

interval [0, 2π] while Jen and Jyn randomly pick points on the circumference of a unit circle. Jhin

makes a straight slice connecting the two points, breaking the unit circle into two pieces. Consider

the area of the smaller of the two pieces. Jhin wins if his chosen number is larger than this area,

c1

1

and he loses otherwise. The probability Jhin wins can be written in the form

+

where

c2 c3 · π c4

c1 , c2 , c3 , c4 are positive integers and c1 , c2 are relatively prime. Find the sum c1 + 2c2 + 3c3 + 4c4 .

9. (5 points) Define a word as any string of letters from the set a,b,c, ... ,x,y,z.

This days, it so hard find good word. All the word I hear are too big. I have pals. Help me find

they good word stat.

A person’s “good word stat” is the probability any given word that comes out of their mouth has

a length of at most 4 letters, over the space of all the (not necessarily distinct) words they’ve said

in infinite time. Write your answers rounded to the nearest integer percent.

(a) (1 point) Hi, my name is Viraj. I speak by randomly choosing (valid) words said within the

past 500 years or so, taking into account their frequencies. For example, I will say “the”

quite often.

(b) (1 point) Hi, my name is Adam. I speak by randomly choosing (valid) words said within the

past 500 years or so, without taking into account their frequencies. For example, I will say

“the” and “precalculus” with the same probability.

(c) (1 point) Hi, my name is Matt. When I speak, I have a 31 probability of ending the current

word I’m saying, and starting a new word with some random letter, and a 23 probability of

continuing the current word I’m saying by appending a new random letter.

(d) (2 points) Hi, my name is Mike. When I speak, I have a 21 probability of ending the current

word I’m saying, and starting a new word with some random letter, and a 12 probability of

continuing the current word I’m saying by appending some new random letters. Given that

I’m continuing the current word I’m saying, let k be a positive integer, and let L be the

current length of the current word. Then the probability of appending k new random letters

is inversely proportional to (kL)2 .

10. (3 points) Find the number of odd coefficients of the following expressions. For example, given

(x + 9)(x + 14)(x + 16) = x3 + 39x2 + 494x + 2016, it is easy to see there are exactly 2 odd

coefficients.

(a) (1 points)

(2x + 3x4 + 7x11 + 18)(3x14 + 2x71 + 8x314 + 299x8 )

(b) (1 point)

2017

(x + i)

i=1

(c) (1 point)

Y

(x2 + ix + i2 )

i=1

11. (4 points) After realizing you’ve solved every math problem ever published, you begin generating

your own problems. To do this, first you standardize notation. An expression is defined as any

string of symbols from the set 0123456789-+/*(). Then, you define a modifier as [a -> b],

where a and b are expressions. Applying a modifier to an expression replaces all instances of a

with b. For example, evaluating 3-5 after applying [- -> +] gives an answer of 8.

(a) (0.5 points) Evaluate 2+2 after applying [2 -> 2+2] 4 times.

(b) (1 point) Evaluate 2*2 after applying [2 -> 2*2] 4 times.

(c) (1 point) Evaluate 1/1 after applying [/1 -> 1/1+1/10 4 times.

(d) (1.5 points) Evaluate 1+1 after applying [+ -> +1+1] 16 times.

√

12. (2 points) Let x be a real number. If tan(x) tan(150◦ − x) = − 5, what is the value of

sin(x) sin(150◦ − x)?

13. (2 points) Point N lies within triangle KIM such that ∠KIN = ∠M KN , ∠IKN = ∠IM N ,

and ∠IN M = 90◦ . What is the value of M N/KM ?

Plots, Figures, and Visuals

Part I: (0.5 points each, 5 total) Your FAMAT Student Delegate President loves visualizations, especially

when they are used for statistical analyses or for representing mathematical concepts. She often spends

hours scrolling through photos of plots on the Internet and wishing her plots could be just as beautiful.

It is 3 in the morning, and she has just spent the entire day looking at plots. She is confused. Help her

identify the following plots and figures:

[Hint: Numbers should not be relevant, identification can be made using distinctive features of different

types of plots]

(b)

(c)

Part II: (16 points) After finally identifying all the plots that appeared earlier in this test (and learning

how to make them herself!), Kim decided to tone down her visualization web-surfing adventures by

focusing on the basics. She decided to look at colors instead, particularly HTML colors In the definition

used for this section, there are 140 defined HTML colors. The color names are the strings that do not

include any numbers or “#” symbols. An example is the color midnightblue. The following questions

deal with colors that Kim might have encountered on the second leg of her grand visualization odyssey.

1. (3 points) How many HTML color names have the substring medium in them? light? dark?

2. (1 point) What is the longest HTML color name (names do not have spaces)?

3. (12 points; 0.5 per color) Name as many HTML colors you can find in the following figure, all are

one of 140 HTML colors, there are no repeats. Please write the colors in the corresponding line

in your answer sheet. The bottom right answer box corresponds with the bottom right color in

the array. You may write the colors with or without spaces.

1, 2, 2, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2, 2, 1, 2...

1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3...

2. (3 points) “Lazy Skunk” with a lisp = ?

3. (1 point) What would you tell Google to do if you wanted to rotate the screen 360◦ ?

5

An Adventure Through Pop Culture!

1. (9 points) After a long journey home from overseas, you overhear a conversation your father is

having with his best friend from high school. Figure out what they’re talking about:

“Ya know, they don’t make ’em like they used to. Back in the day, it was all

’bout the struggle of life. The common man, the common folk. ’Bout the

grime and dirt of the real world: the war and the battle. Now, seems like

every year everyone seems to be captivated by any old ball throwing sport;

looks like everyone just goes on and drops e’rything just to see it – their

brains are all mashed like potaters...Maybe they ought to go see sarg’ at

the medical tent, cuz they clearly have their eyes on backwards. But us old

fellers, we’ve left our mark on that list. The end of our stuff is on the same

caliber as them, I reckon. I saw it on a list–it said so itself. It made marks

on history that no ball-throwing half-time can do. I guess the good old days

are just old days now to these young folk.”

2. (1 point) Patrick is before Tom, who is before Matt. David is after Paul, who is after Jon. Who’s

first? (Hint: This question is making perfect sense. Are you keeping up?)
