Wait, Is Bhaskara contest held in Delhi too? W.R.T Solutions- sorry, I dont think I have solved it fully but what came to my mind as soon as i saw this is - factor. Like if you see $$(x+1)(y+1)(z+1)$$ you will get most of the terms which are there in the question. Ill work on it and tell you. Are you taking up the test tomo'w? Well- A small change- The signs must be reversed with the 1's! · 2 years, 11 months ago

Yes, it takes place in Delhi too. However, in not held on such a vast scale as in TN. According to me a better form of factorization is $$(x-1)(y-1)(z-1)$$. And I am giving NMTC today. · 2 years, 11 months ago
