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.

Don't you think this Pre RMO is quite easy?

@naitik sanghavi I can't believe this is really Pre-RMO lol

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Yes !! You are right !! $\ddot \smile$

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Guess what last year's pre rmo cut off was 8/20. Couldn't resist my laughter.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Yes,our region's pre-rmo was damn easy!! And the cutoff is just 40!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

@Nihar Mahajan This is really easy. I can't believe that the cutoff is 40.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Yeah!!Cutoff is 40 for our region and each subjective question carries 6 marks while each objective question carries 8 marks!! I know it was very easy so I didn't post all questions at first!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I think this must be pre-pre-pre-pre RMO lol

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Lol yes. ${Pre}^ {\infty}$ RMO :P

- 5 years, 2 months ago

This is a good way of selecting the 9th standard students .So they can also participate in RMO!!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Do you go school everyday?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

- 5 years, 2 months ago

He doubted your capability to go to school :3

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I asked coz I was surprised how could you all do so much study with school work!!I mean I have just learnt some of the topics of 11-12 standard!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I study school stuff , just before the day of school exams. (Its an irony that I score well :P)

- 5 years, 2 months ago

In question $9$ there are two possible answers$\rightarrow$Wednesday OR Thursday. So what do u think $B$ or $D$?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Yes. There are two possibilities.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I was also confused with this ,that which option I should I go for???

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I don't understand why there is such a huge difference in level of Pre-RMO and RMO!🙀

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I agree !!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

How did you get 6 as your answer for (1)?I'm getting $\large \frac{\sqrt{30}}{5}$.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Yes ... you're right...actually I forgot the square root :-(

- 5 years, 2 months ago

how did you get $\dfrac {\sqrt {30}}{5}$? I got $\sqrt {\dfrac {6}{5}}$

- 5 years, 2 months ago

They both are same.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Oh yeah :3

- 5 years, 2 months ago

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Can anyone please explain 12th one? Thanks

- 5 years, 2 months ago In $\triangle ABC$,

$\Rightarrow \angle A+\angle B+\angle C=180°$

$\Rightarrow 180°-2x+90°+180°-2y=180°$

$\Rightarrow x+y=135°$

Therefore, $\angle DEF=45°$

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Did you solve the 13th?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Nope!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Ok!!Did anyone else solve this?@Mehul Arora @Nihar Mahajan

- 5 years, 2 months ago

13th one is 7C2 = (7!)/(5! * 2!) = (7*6)/(2) = 21

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Gave the same solution!!Just wanted to check my answer!!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

@naitik sanghavi The question basically asks for choosing two of the seven compartments to keep a ball in. So according to me, the answer should be 21,

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Thanks ,I also chose this answer only!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Oh......Yes !!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Thanks a lot! I realized it was much easier than what i earlier thought.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Q1 ) I'm not very sure, but is the answer could be $(x+9)(x^2-57)+129$

Q2) I guess both Thursday and Wednesday are possibilities.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

How did you get the answer for first?coz it was asked in subjective part!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Actually, I added and subtracted 129

So the given polynomial becomes $x^3 + 9x -57x -517 +129$

$x^2(x+9)-57(x+9) +129$

$(x^2+9)(x-57) +129$

- 5 years, 2 months ago

I have edited the note with subjective part!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

@Akshat Sharda @Akshay Yadav @Nihar Mahajan @Mehul Arora @Aditya Kumar @Anshuman Bais @Adarsh Kumar @Swapnil Das @Svatejas Shivakumar @Dev Sharma I have updated the note with the whole paper of Pre-RMO 2015 Gujarat Region!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

- 3 years, 3 months ago

Is it 384 or 385?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

384 was written in the paper!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

OHK!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Did you solve it?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

No,lemme try.I had solved it for $385$.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

@naitik sanghavi Which region's Pre RMO is this?

Can you please post all questions?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Pre-RMO Gujarat ...

I do not have the question paper coz we had to attach it with the answer sheet!! Well!! I remember some of the questions which I can post here...

- 5 years, 2 months ago

And do you have the answers?

- 5 years, 2 months ago

No,I have given it today only so no answers!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Okay. Please see to the answer I've given, and they might not be correct :)

- 5 years, 2 months ago

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Q4) Something's wrong with this. I think there can be a typo mistake.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Q5) This is quite straightforward. Just use expansions of $(a+b)^2 , (a-b)^2$ and then compute the product $(a-b)(a+b)$ to get $\pm80$. But discard $-80$ since $a>b$.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Q6) Let the required 2 digit number be $x$. Then form a linear equation: $27x=2(300+x)$ and solve for $x$ to get $24$.

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Q7) The answer should be 4. $(x,y,z)=(0,0,0) , (1,1,1) , (2,2,2) , (3,3,3)$

- 5 years, 2 months ago

Sorry,forget to mention that x,y,z are positive integers!!

- 5 years, 2 months ago

This is damn easy .pre-RMO of Mumbai region is better (even though this one is also easy).

- 5 years, 1 month ago

@naitik sanghavi When are you going to get your results? (although I know that you will easily qualify)

- 5 years, 1 month ago

On question paper it was written that results will be available from 15th October on RMO Gujarat!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Did you get the results?

- 5 years, 1 month ago

No, I don't why they are not publishing the results as they told to do so on 15th!!I'm waiting for the results from many days!!!!!!!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

The results are updated on https://sites.google.com/site/rmogujarat/. I got 84! (4)the question is given bonus to all .. I didn't attempt two questions,14th and 8th(very silly mistake) because I thought negative marking was there!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Congratulations!!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Thanks!!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

Wow sooooooo many people wrote PRE-RMO from Gujarat!!!!

- 5 years, 1 month ago

In this year's Mumbai pre-RMO I got 19/20

- 5 years ago

Great ! Congrats...
