A farmer owns $50$ papaya trees. Each tree produces $600$ papayas in a year. For each additional tree planted in the orchard, the output of each tree (including the pre-existing ones) drops by $5$ papayas. How many trees should be added to the existing orchard in order to maximize the total production of papayas?

There are $7$ switches on a switchboard, some of which are $on$ and some of which are $off$. In one move, you pick any $2$ switches and toggle each of them-if the switch you pick is currently $off$, you turn it $on$, if it is $on$, you turn it $off$. Your aim is to execute a sequence ... $\text{(off,on,on,on,off,on,off)}$ $\text{(off,on,off,off,on,off,on)}$ $\text{(off,on,off,off,off,on,off)}$
