Part B

Problem 11

In the adjoining figure $\angle \mathrm{BAD}=\angle \mathrm{DAF}=\angle \mathrm{FAC}$. GE is parallel to $\mathrm{DF}$, and $\angle \mathrm{EGA}=90^{\circ}$. If $\angle \mathrm{ACE}=70^{\circ}$, the measure of $\angle \mathrm{FDE}$ is $\rule{1cm}{0.15mm}$.

Problem 12

$A B C$ is a triangle in which the angles are in the ratio $3: 4: 5$. PQR is a triangle in which the angles are in the ratio $5: 6: 7$. The difference between the least angle of $A B C$ and the least angle of PQR is $a^{\circ}$. Then $a=$ $\rule{1cm}{0.15mm}$.

Problem 13

Samrud had to multiply a number by 35 . By mistake he multiplied by 53 and got a result 720 more. The new product is $\rule{1cm}{0.15mm}$.

Problem 14
