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.

First of all , I want to tell that they are no tricky problems. Tooooooo easy problems.

The complete solutions are -

1.) Clearly, by Vieta's Formula - $a+b+c=1$, $ab+bc+ca = 1$, $abc=2$

We know that $a^3+b^3+c^3-3abc=(a+b+c)(a^2+b^2+c^2-ab-bc-ca) = (a+b+c)((a+b+c)^2 -3(ab+bc+ca))$

Plugging the values, we get

$a^3+b^3+c^3-6=(1)(1^2-3(1))=-2 \Rightarrow a^3+b^3+c^3 = 4$

2.) Since ABC is similar to DCA, the ratio of their corresponding sides must be equal. So,

$\frac{AB}{DC}=\frac{BC}{AC} \Rightarrow DC = 12$

3.) The given equations can be simplified to $yz + 2xz + 3xy = 0$ and $yz - 6xz - 5xy = 0$

Subtracting both the equations, we get -

$z + y = 0 \Rightarrow z=-y$

Substituting $z=-y$ in first equation, we get - $x^2-y^2 = 0$

Now, put $z=-y$ in $x/y + y/z + z/x$. So, what you will get is $x/y + y/z + z/x = -1$

4.) $a+b = 1$, $a^2+b^2 = 2$

We can easily get $ab = \frac{-1}{2}$

Now -

$a^5 + b^5 = a^5 + b^5 + a^3b^2 + a^2b^3 - a^3b^2 - a^2b^3$

$= a^3(a^2+b^2)+b^3(a^2+b^2) - a^3b^2 - a^2b^3 = (a^2+b^2)(a^3+b^3) - a^2b^2(a+b)$

So, $a^5+b^5 = (a^2+b^2)(a^3+b^3) - (ab)^2(a+b) = (a^2+b^2)(a+b)(a^2+b^2-ab) - (ab)^2(a+b)$

Now plugging the values, we get - $a^5+b^5 = \frac{19}{4}$

5.) First, let $\angle DRC = \angle BRp = \theta$ and $RP = x$

Then $AD = (5+x)cos \theta$ and $RC = 5cos \theta$

Now observe that - triangle QAD is similar to QCR. So, on solving for PR gives $PR = \frac{5}{2}$

6.) Let $BD = x$, $\angle BAD = \angle DAC = \theta$

Then, from triangle $ABC \rightarrow sin 2\theta = \frac{8}{10} = \frac{4}{5}$

from triangle $BAD \rightarrow sin \theta = \frac{x}{\sqrt{36+x^2}}$ and $cos \theta = \frac{6}{\sqrt{36+x^2}}$

We know that $sin 2\theta = 2sin\theta cos\theta$

Plugging their values, we get the following quadratic - $s^2-15x+36 \Rightarrow x = 12, 3$

Since, $BC = 8$, so we can't take $x=12$

Hence, $AD = \sqrt{3^2 + 6^2} = \sqrt{45}$

Next time when you post a question in discussion, please makes sure that they are of proper difficulty level.

I'm not trying to be rude at all but these questions were really easy and they aren't science problems. Though if you are having trouble with anyone of them just let me know because I will help you. I can give you some hints if you like too: 1. this involves complex numbers 2. I used the cosine rule 3. this is just algebra 4. this just involves a quadratic 5. just a bit of trigonometry 6. this just involves Pythagoras/tan. Hope this helps.

These are very easier problems and way below than the level of Brilliant problems. You must not post these types of problems to this discussion room.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

that was easy. Now, help me solve this... $x^{2}+5x+5=32$ Don't use trial and error method and the $x$ value should be a single one.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

That's the question which the brilliant community should solve

thank you. that's all i need. please write the steps also.

Are you f'ing kidding us? This is as easy as the ones posted above. Sorry.

- 6 years, 3 months ago

Not kidding.Not f'ing. but making use of situations.
