Two circles enclose non-intersecting areas. Common tangent lines to the two circles, one external and one internal, are drawn. Consider two straight lines each of which passes through the tangent points on one of the circles. Prove that the intersection point of the lines lies on the straight line that connects the centers of the circles.

TopNewestProblem 1 was just an AM-GM.

Let \(y_i = \dfrac {1}{x_i + 2017}\), so \(x_i = \dfrac {1 - 2017y_i}{y_i}\)

We have

\[\displaystyle \sum_{j=1}^{2017} y_j = \dfrac{1}{2017}\]

Thus,

\[\begin{align} \dfrac{1}{2017} - y_i &= \displaystyle \sum_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j\\ 1 - 2017 y_i &= 2017 \displaystyle \sum_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j\\ \end{align}\]

However, we also have

\[\displaystyle \sum_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j \geq 2016 \left ( \displaystyle \prod_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j \right ) ^{\dfrac {1}{2016}}\]

Therefore,

\[\begin{align} \displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^{2017} x_i &= \displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^{2017} \dfrac {1 - 2017y_i}{y_i}\\ & = \dfrac {\displaystyle 2017^{2017} \prod_{i=1}^{2017} \left (\displaystyle \sum_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j \right )}{\displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^{2017} y_i}\\ &\geq \dfrac {(2016 \times 2017)^{2017} \displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^{2017} \left ( \displaystyle \prod_{\substack{j=1\\ j \neq i}}^{2017} y_j \right )^{\dfrac{1}{2016}}}{\displaystyle \prod_{i=1}^{2017} y_i}\\ &= 2016^{2017} \times 2017^{2017}\\ \end{align}\]

This just rearranges to give us the desired expression. – Sharky Kesa · 1 month, 3 weeks ago
