A mathlete has been tracking the percentage of problems he has gotten right so far this season.

Let \(n\) be the number of problems given to him, and \(m\) the number he has gotten correct.

Find the sum of all \(0<q<0.85\) such that if at some point in the season \(\frac{m}{n}<q\), and at some **later** point in the season \(\frac{m}{n}>q\), then there must exist a third point in the season where \(\frac{m}{n}=q.\)

If you believe that no such \(q\) exists, submit \(-1\) as your answer.

A \(\SI{1}{\meter}\) rod of uniform composition and total mass \(\SI{1}{\kilo\gram}\) has one end hinged at the origin. A \(\SI{1}{\kilo\gram}\) bead is placed at the end, and is free to slide along the rod (if it reaches the end, it will separate from the rod).

The bead and rod are prepared so that the bead sits near the end of the rod which makes an angle of \(\theta=60^\circ\) with the ground.

If this system is released from rest at time zero, at what time (in seconds) does the bead slide off of the rod?

**Assumptions:**

- \(g = \SI[per-mode=symbol]{10}{\meter\per\second\squared}.\)

There is a vertical pole perpendicular to the horizontal plane. From point \(P\) on the plane, 2 projectiles are fired simultaneously at different velocities. The first projectile is fired at an angle of \(30^{\circ}\) and it hits the foot of the pole. The second projectile is fired at an angle of \(60^{\circ}\) and it hits the top of the pole.

It is further known that the projectiles hit the pole at the same time.

If the angle subtended by the pole from \(P\) is \(\alpha\), find \(\tan \alpha\) to 3 decimal places.

\(\)

**Details and Assumptions:**

- Air resistance is negligible.
- A gravitational pull is present.
