### Math Kangaroo

Math Kangaroo is a popular math contest. There are 24 questions in the test. Each question has point value. 1/3 of questions are 3 points each; 1/3 are 4 points each, 1/3 are 5 points each. The sum of earned points is the student's final score. Leo and five other kids join the contest. The median and mean of their scores are both 90. If they all have different scores, what's the lowest possible score among them?

After Dr. Hong, Leo and William complete a basketball workout, they open a pack of Oreo cookies to share among themselves. If there are 12 cookies in the pack, and if each person gets at least one cookie, how many different ways are there to distribute the cookies? (They do not split a cookie.)
