8. Let N be a 3-digit number with two digits the same and no digit 0. The sum of the digits of N is odd, and the product of the digits of N is even and exceeds the sum of its digits by M, where M is a 3-digit number with no digit 0. The number formed by reversing the digits of N is 297 less than N. Find N.
9. A rectangle and a rhombus have a side AB ,of length 34, inches in common. The sides opposite AB (in the rectangle and the rhombus, respectively) lie on a line l, and the rectangle and the rhombus have equal areas ,of 544 square inches. Let trapezoid ABSR have AB and RS as its two parallel sides with RS on line l and shorter than AB, AR a side of the given rhombus and SB a side of the given rectangle. If trapezoid ABSR has area 304 square inches, find the sum of the perimeters of the rectangle, the rhombus and trapezoid ABSR.
10. A deck of 32 cards includes 8 red, 8 green, 8 yellow and 8 blue cards; the 8 cards of each color are numbered from 1 to 8, respectively.

12. Jane walks on a moving walkway in an airport from a waiting area to a boarding area in 5 minutes at a fixed rate; the rate at which the walkway moves is also constant. She realizes that she left something in the waiting area and so walks back on the walkway, in the direction opposite to which the walkway is moving, from the boarding area to the waiting area in 8 minutes at double the rate she walked earlier. Find the rate of the moving walkway, in yards per minute if the distance from the waiting area to the boarding area on the walkway is 80 yards.
13. Lines l1: 2x + 2y = 3, l2: x = y and l3: x = 7y lie on a coordinate plane. Find the area of the smallest circle such that all three lines are tangent to this circle.
