## IITB UCEED Question Paper

A typical football is made by stitching together 12 pentagons and 20 hexagons. How many vertices (junctions) are there in such a football?

A wooden block of dimension 10cm x 20cm x 30cm is cut into equal sized planks. The cut planks are stacked one above the other to achieve a total height of 100cm exactly. If the minimum number of planks are cut to achieve this height, then what is the volume of each plank in cm3?

During a long-distance sea voyage, without the Captain realising, steering of the ship started malfunctioning in the following manner. When the Captain was trying to turn the ship 60 degrees to the left, ship was turning 30 degrees to the right. When the Captain was trying to turn the ship 90 degrees to the left, ship was turning 90 degrees to the right. When the Captain was trying to turn the ship 45 degrees to the right, ship was turning 30 degrees to the left. When the Captain was trying to turn the ship 90 degrees to the right, ship was turning 45 degrees to the left.

Before the malfunction, ship was going in North-East direction. After the malfunction started, without realising the problem, the Captain tried to turn 90 degrees to the left, then 90 degrees to the right, then 45 degrees to the right and finally 60 degrees to the left. Find the current direction of the ship.
