14 Divisors

What is the smallest number with exactly 14 divisors?

Summing Consecutive Numbers

Many numbers can be expressed as the sum of two or more consecutive integers. For example, 15=7+8 and 10=1+2+3+4. Can you say which numbers can be expressed in this way?

Dozens

Do you know a quick way to check if a number is a multiple of two? How about three, four or six?

Weekly Problem 39 - 2010

Stage: 3 Short Challenge Level:

Observing that triangle $PQS$ is isosceles, we have $\angle PSQ = \frac {1}{2}(180^{\circ} - 12^{\circ}) = 84^{\circ}$ and hence $\angle PSR = 180^{\circ} - 84^{\circ}=96^{\circ}$.

Since triagle $PRS$ is also isosceles, we have $\angle SPR = \frac {1}{2}(180^{\circ} - 96^{\circ}) = 42^{\circ}$. Hence $\angle QPR = 12^{\circ}+ 42^{\circ} = 54^{\circ}$.

This problem is taken from the UKMT Mathematical Challenges.
