January Solutions Remember: These are open-ended problems. There could be other solutions than the ones we are giving. Number Theory 1. \$760 2. All 25 odd numbers occur between 1 and 50. 5 odd numbers occur within each decade. The sum of the ones column per decade is 25. (5x25)+(5x0)+(5x10)+(5x20)+(5x30)+(5x40) = 625 [For evens: apply the same equation, substituting '30' for '25'] (5x30)+(5x0)+(5x10)+(5x20)+(5x30)+(5x40) = 650 3. 5 weeks 4. Discount City; \$126 5.
