Trevor's Ten

Trevor's Ten

HELLO BRILLIANT

Sorry I haven't been posting much recently. I've been busy compiling a set of my top 10 best problems (the 3rd is based off of one of Sualeh Asif's) posts.and now I'm going to release them all at once as a set. There are some mechanics, calculus, Algebra, Geometry, NT, and combinatorics problems.

Most of these problems are very challenging (lvl 4-5) but all of them have very elegant solutions. Please, if you like a problem, kindly like and reshare it because I worked very very hard on all of these.

Btw, incase you're wondering why it's my top 10 and not 11 it's because one problem here isn't exactly original since I made one similar before.

Here is a direct link to the set

Numbers next to links represent relative difficulty in this set. Not the actual level of the problem

FOR THOSE WHO WANT A CHALLENGE, Try the problems with ** next to them

NT

%Solvers 3.5

Lol, Integers 5

738 Followers Problem 2.5

Alg

**A Man in the Valley 5

WHY ISNT B CUBED??? 4

Geom

**Angle Trisector(this is my favorite) 5

Triangle Area Sum(based off of a problem I made before that didn't get too popular, but I'm reposting it cuz I feel it's is a good problem) 4

Calculus

The Greatest Sin 3.5-4

**Rotating a Graph 4.5

Combinatorics

The Forest 2 4

Mechanics

SEAN and the TYrannosaurus Rex 2.5-3

Nice questions @Trevor Arashiro !

I had read that comment in which you were telling Brian sir how you'll post a lot of questions at once , and was waiting for that to happen . Just when I had forgotten about it, it happened !

Also , is it you in the pic above ? Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years ago

Hi, Trevor. That photo looks good enough to go into Golf Digest. :) Great set of unique problems; I'm looking forward to leisurely wading through them. I do have a concern about the "Triangle Area Sum" question, though. I might be going crazy, but I can find only two possible triangles under the given conditions. I initially thought there were four, but two of them fail because we can't have the 60 degree angle opposite the side of length 9, (it's left hanging in mid-air, otherwise). I'll give it another go if you are certain of your solution, but I just wanted to ask before giving it yet another try. Thanks. Brian Charlesworth · 2 years ago

@Brian Charlesworth Oh god... I forgot to change it to 11... Lol. The answer is still right, but I gotta change the wording to say 11. Thanks for catching that :)

And thanks! Lol, Photoshop works miracles these days. Trevor Arashiro · 2 years ago

I didn't know that you looked like a cartoon. Anyway, nice picture. :3 Prasun Biswas · 2 years ago

@Prasun Biswas lol, which one? Trevor Arashiro · 2 years ago

@Trevor Arashiro Your face in the pic. For some reason, it looks like Vito Scaletta from Mafia II.

Ignore my earlier comment. Actually, you look like the game character I mentioned. All that's left is a baseball bat/Thompson 1928 in your hand instead of a golf club.

On second thoughts, clubs are also good extortion weapons. So, it works. Let me see if I can find the pic that matches you most with the character I'm talking about. Prasun Biswas · 2 years ago
