# Some General Questions

1. The first term of a sequence is 2014. Each succeeding term is the sum of the cubes of the digits of the previous term. What is the 2014th term of the sequence?

2. In a triangle with integer side lengths, one side is three times as long as a second side, and the length of the third side is 17. What is the greatest possible perimeter of the triangle?

3. If real numbers a, b, c, d, e satisfy a + 1 = b + 2 = c + 3 = d + 4 = e + 5 = a + b + c + d + e + 3, what is the value of a^2 + b^2 + c^2 + d^2 + e^2

4. Let ABCD be a convex quadrilateral with perpendicular diagonals. If AB = 20, BC = 70 and CD = 90, then what is the value of DA?

5. A natural number k is such that k^2 < 2014 < (k + 1)^2. What is the largest prime factor of k?

6. Let S be a set of real numbers with mean M. If the means of the sets S∪{15} and S∪{15, 1} are M + 2 and M + 1, respectively, then how many elements does S have?

7. What is the smallest possible natural number n for which the equation x^2 − nx + 2014 = 0 has integer roots?

8. In a triangle ABC, X and Y are points on the segments AB and AC, respectively, such that AX : XB = 1 : 2 and AY : Y C = 2 : 1. If the area of triangle AXY is 10 then what is the area of triangle ABC?

9. Let XOY be a triangle with angleXOY = 90◦ . Let M and N be the midpoints of legs OX and OY , respectively. Suppose that XN = 19 and Y M = 22. What is XY ? Note by Vishruth Khare

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.
