Let \(ABC\) be a triangle and \(D\) be the mid-point of \(BC\). Suppose the angle bisector of \(\angle ADC\) is tangent to the circumcircle of triangle \(ABD\) at \(D\). Prove that \(\angle A=90^{\circ}\).

Let \(a,b,c\) be three distinct positive real numbers such that \(abc=1\). Prove that \(\dfrac{a^3}{(a-b)(a-c)}+\dfrac{b^3}{(b-c)(b-a)}+\dfrac{c^3}{(c-a)(c-b)} > 3\).

Let \(a,b,c,d,e,d,e,f\) be positive integers such that \(\dfrac a b < \dfrac c d < \dfrac e f\). Suppose \(af-be=-1\). Show that \(d \geq b+f\).

There are \(100\) countries participating in an olympiad. Suppose \(n\) is a positive integer such that each of the \(100\) countries is willing to communicate in exactly \(n\) languages. If each set of \(20\) countries can communicate in at least one common language, and no language is common to all \(100\) countries, what is the minimum possible value of \(n\)?

Let \(ABC\) be a right-angled triangle with \(\angle B=90^{\circ}\). Let \(I\) be the incentre if \(ABC\). Extend \(AI\) and \(CI\); let them intersect \(BC\) in \(D\) and \(AB\) in \(E\) respectively. Draw a line perpendicular to \(AI\) at \(I\) to meet \(AC\) in \(J\), draw a line perpendicular to \(CI\) at \(I\) to meet \(AC\) at \(K\). Suppose \(DJ=EK\). Prove that \(BA=BC\).

6.(a). Given any natural number \(N\), prove that there exists a strictly increasing sequence of \(N\) positive integers in harmonic progression.

(b). Prove that there cannot exist a strictly increasing infinite sequence of positive integers which is in harmonic progression.

20 is the answer for the 4th one – Mayank Jha · 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Log in to reply

Is the following solution correct for P2?

WLOG \(a>b>c\) Multiplying both sides by \((a-b)(b-c)(c-a)\), it suffices to prove \(\sum a^3(b-c) \ge 3(a-b)(b-c)(c-a)\).

Expanding both sides and simplifying , this reduces to prove \(\sum (a^3b+3a^2b) \ge \sum( ab^3+3ab^2)\). Using \(abc=1\) this simplifies to show \[\sum \frac{a^2+3a}{c} \ge \sum \frac{a^2+3a}{b}\]

But this is just rearrangement on \[a^3+3a>b^3+3b>c^3+3c\] and \[1/a < 1/b < 1/c\] – AceKnight Trogh · 3 months ago

The Farey sequence relates to question 3.Log in to reply

– Sharky Kesa · 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Yeah, sorry, looked at the wrong question. Question 4 looks like Pigeonhole Principle.Log in to reply

For q2 since a,b,c are distinct WLOG a>b>c.Take a=c+y,b=c+x,and replace a,b with the above values in lhs and on solving you get finally lhs as 3c+x+y which is nothing but a+b+c,now apply am-gm,to prove it. – Mayank Jha · 3 months ago

Terms are [a^3/{3(a-b)(a-c)}]+a-b/(3^{5/2})+a-c/(3^{5/2})>=a/3 – Manas Verma · 3 months ago

Log in to reply

Better use the formatting guide to write the expression.\(\frac{a^{3}}{3(a-b)(a-c)}+\frac{a-b}{3^{5/2}}+\frac{a-c}{3^{5/2}} \geq \frac{a}{3}\)

That looks better and much understandable too!– Saurabh Mallik · 3 months agoLog in to reply

Apply am -gm for these a^3/3(a-b)(a-c)+(a-b)/3^(5/2)+(a-c)/3^(5/2) Which is>=a/3 Now write same expressions for b and c and add all three We get in rhs- a+b+c/3>=1(am-gm) Hence proved :) – Manas Verma · 3 months ago
