  4. Find the sum of all $3$-digit natural numbers which contain at least one odd digit and at least one even digit.
  5. A convex polygon $\Gamma $ is such that the distance between any two vertices of $ \Gamma $ does not exceed 1.
    • Prove that the distance between any two points on the boundary of $ \Gamma $ does not exceed $1$.
    • If X and Y are two distinct points inside $ \Gamma $, prove that there exists a point Z on the boundary of $ \Gamma $ such that $ XZ+YZ \le 1 $.
  6. In a book with page numbers from $1$ to $100$, some pages are torn off. The sum of the numbers on the remaining pages is $4949$. How many pages are torn off?
