Week 2 Problem E

Post  Archis on Tue Oct 14, 2008 2:02 am

Note from Archis: This problem is separated into parts. The questions are bolded, but don't skim through the history. You may never know, maybe Mr. Stephens or Mrs. Broccoli will ask what are the dimensions of the Declaration of independence. What a Face

On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies declared their independence from Britain. On July 8, the Declaration of Independence was read aloud in Philadelphia, marking the first celebration of Independence Day. The Declaration was written by Thomas Jefferson on a parchment that measured 24-1/4 inches by 29-3/4 inches. What was the number of square inches in the area of this document that changed the nation?

Party of Five: Of the 56 delegates to the Congress, a Committee of Five was appointed to write it. (Turns out that Jefferson did all the writing with some input from Benjamin Franklin and John Adams.) In how many different ways could a committee of 5 members be chosen from a group of 56?
