1, . . . , 100 (at each turn one may take any number which has not been used earlier and replace by
it any asterisk). If they form a non-singular matrix then the first player wins, else the second player
wins. Has anybody of players a winning strategy? If somebody has, then who?

6. The clock-face is a dice of radius 1. The hour-hand is a dice of radius 1/2 touching the circle of
the clock-face in inner way, and the minute-hand is a segment of length 1. Find the area of the figure
