35.)A line through a point A outside a circle is tangent to the circle at D. Another line through A intersects the circle at points B (closer to A) and C. If \frac{BC}{AB} = 2 and AD = 6, find AC.

36.) In a circle, chords AB and CD intersect at E. If arc AC = 120^\circ and BD = 20^\circ ,  find \angle AEC.

37.) Find the area (in sq units) of the region between two concentric circles if a chord of the larger circle which is tangent to the smaller circle has length 7.

38.) A triangle having sides 3 \sqrt{7} , 9, and 12 units, is inscribed in a circle. Find the circumference of the circle.

39.) In the figure, quadrilateral ABCD is inscribed in a circle. Lines AB and CD intersect at P, while lines AD and BC intersect at Q. If \angle APD = 50^\circ  and \angle AQB = 34^\circ, find \angle PAQ.

40.) How many books (all different) are there if there are 5040 ways of arranging them in a shelf ?

41.) Lila and Dolf each counted the number of three-digit positive integers that can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Lila assumed a digit can be repeated, while Dolf assumed no digit can be repeated. If they counted correctly, what is the difference between their answers?

42.) In how many ways can a photographer arrange 7 students for a club picture if Ana, Carol and Iris must always be together, but Rey and Ruel should not be beside each other.

For problems 43 and 44: A committee is to be formed from 7 City ? residents and 9 City ? residents.

43.) How many 6-member committees with 3 members from each city can be formed?

44.) How many 5-member committees with more City? than City? members can be formed?

For problems 45 and 46: The numbers 1, 2, … , 25 are written on slips of paper which are placed in a box.

45.) If two slips  are picked at the same time from the box, find the probability that one number is a multiple of 7 and the other is a multiple of 8.

46.) If three slips are picked at the same time from the box, find the probability that the sum of the numbers is odd.

47.) Two fair dice are rolled. Find the probability that one die is 2 while the other is a prime number.

48.) In a class of Grade 10 students, the probability that a random chosen student lies dogs is 0.72, that a student likes cats is 0.54, and that a student likes neither is 0.11. Find the probability that a student likes both dogs and cats.

49.) In a company, the men who do not wear glasses are thrice as many as the men who do, while the women who do not wear glasses are ten more than the women who do. The probability that an employee wears glasses is 3/10 . If a selected employee wears glasses, the probability that the employee is a woman is 2/3 . How many are the employees of the company?
