1) I want a correct explanation please: A semi-circle is drawn outwardly on chord AB of the circle with center O and unit radius. The perpendicular from O to AB, meets the semi-circle on AB at C. Determine the measure of angle( AOB ) and length AB so that OC has maximum length.

2) Find the number of numbers <= $$10^{8}$$ which are neither perfect squares,nor perfect cubes, nor perfect fifth powers.

V easy. It's an elementary problem of inclusion n exclusion. First u take out the no of squares ie 10000 n similarily cubes n fifth powers n subtract the no of 6th, 15th ,10th powers and add the 30th power nos. I hope u got it.. if u want my written solution I ll mail it to u.. but the answer is 10^8 - 10474.

The answer to the first is a bit obvious but I like the second one. What is the relation between squares? How can we find the difference between two squared numbers without squaring them? I hope its clear.
