Compute n15 . 3 A point P is chosen in the interior of 4ABC so that when lines are drawn through P parallel to the sides of 4ABC, the resulting smaller triangles, t1, t2, and t3 in the figure, have areas 4, 9, and 49, respectively. Find the area of 4ABC. A B C t3 t2t1 4 Let S be a list of positive integers - not necessarily distinct - in which the number 68 appears. The average (arithmetic mean) of the numbers in S is 56. However, if 68 is removed, the
