7. Let S be the set of points (a, b) in the coordinate plane, where each of a and b may be 1 , 0 or 1 . How many distinct lines pass through at least two members of S ?

8. Suppose that is an associative operation on a set S . Dene xn to mean x x x x , n times. (So, for example, x3 = x x x .) Suppose further that an element a of S is such that all of a , a2 , . . . , a9 are dierent but a10 = a3 . Then there is some element b belonging to S such that b = b2 . One such element b is: (a) a4 (b) a5 (c) a7 (d) a9 (e) a13

3 2 4 1 3 5 4 2 1

11. One gear turns 33 1 3 times a minute. Another gear turns 45 times a minute. Initially, a mark on each gear is pointing due north. After how many seconds will the two gears next have both their marks pointing due north? 12. The triangles ABC , CDE , EFG , GHI , IJK and KLM below are congruent to one another and similar to ANM .
