Per, Ragnar, and Lars live in the same neighborhood. They have found out that the straight line distance from Per's house to Ragnar's house is 250 m, and from Ragnar's house to Lars' house is 300 m. Which of the following is true about the distance between Per's house and Lars' house?

The distance is between 0 m and 550 m.

The distance is precisely 550 m.

All numbers can be written in base three, in a way similar to base ten. The difference is that in base three, only the digits 0, 1, and 2 can be used. The numbers which we write in base ten as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and so on, are written in base three as 1, 2, 10, 11, 12, and so forth. What number in base ten corresponds to the number 1021 in base three?

Let us call a positive integer "lucky" if its digits can be divided into two groups so that the sum of the digits in each group is the same. For example, 34175 is lucky because 3 + 7 = 4 + 1 + 5. Find the smallest 4- digit lucky number, whose neighbor is also a lucky number (i.e. the integer next to it is a lucky number as well).
