This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Yes it is

Can you tell me what is the expected cutoff for gmo?

I was able to do 4.5 questions do i stand a chance to get selected...

Can anyone tell the answer of 5th question

I m getting 1/3

see i can't post my solution because it is too long but you can verify it by construction.

Answer to question 6. Let $a=m+\frac{b}{c}$ where $m$ is any integer and $0 . Then $a(a-3{a})=( m+\frac{b}{c})( m-2\frac{b}{c})$ $m^{2}-\frac{bm}{c}+\frac{2b^{2}}{c^{2}}$. $m^{2}-\frac{2b^{2}-bcm}{c^{2}}$ Now, $m$ is an integer . Let's consider $\frac{2b^{2}-bcm}{c^{2}}=k$ where $k$ is an integer . After solving we get $\frac{b}{c}=\frac{m+_{-}\sqrt{m^{2}+8k}}{4}$.....(I) But $\frac{b}{c}<1$....(II) Now putting value of $\frac{b}{c}$ from (I) to (II). We get $m+k<2$ Therefore there are infinitely many integers $m,k$ such that $m+k<2$. Hence proved.

you can try the 6 question posted by me they all are of gmo.

m cant be 'any' integer as 3<a<4. So a will be 3.something or a = 3 + b/c

@Shivam Jadhav This ques is a little different from the RMO one , we have to find all values of 'a' between 3 & 4. @Devansh Shah is right , there will be 4 values.

- 4 years ago

Bro ur equation which is quadratic in m is wrong also we will get 4 values of a

Answer to question number 2. $P_{1}(m)-P_{2}(n)=a_{1}-a_{2}=\frac{2(b_{2}-b_{1})}{m-n}$ This implies that $a_{1}-a_{2}=even$. $P_{1}(m)-P_{2}(n)=a_{1}+a_{2}=-2(m+n)$ This implies that $a_{1}+a_{2}=even$. Hence proved.

Answer to question 3. $\frac{6l-1}{4l-3}=\frac{7k-5}{5k-3}$ After cross multiplication we get $8k+l+lk=6$ Adding 8 to both sides $8k+8+l+lk=14$ $8(k+1)+l(1+k)=14$ $(8+l)(1+k)=14$ Since $l,k$ are integers therefore the solutions of $(l,k)=(-1,1),(-6,6),(6,0),(-7,13),(-15,-3),(-22,-2),(-10,-8),(-9,-15)$ Therefore the required fractions are $1,\frac{43}{31},\frac{5}{3},\frac{37}{27},\frac{13}{9},\frac{19}{13},\frac{61}{43},\frac{55}{39}$

1 will be rejected as it isn't a fraction.

Can anybody please post a proper solution for question $4$ with explanation?

- 3 years, 11 months ago

Number of ways of selecting points from points is 28C3=3276

Now, we will eliminate some conditions..

Number of ways of selecting all 3 as adjacent points is 28.

Number of ways of selecting 2 adjacent points and one not adjacent with them is 28×24=672

Number of ways of selecting two points opposite diametrically along with the third point not adjacent to the former points is 14×22=308.

Hence, the desired result will be 3276-28-672-308=2268
