1. Prove that there do not exist natural numbers x and y , with x > 1, such that x7 − 1 = y5 + 1 . x−1 Solution. Simple factorisation gives y 5 = x(x3 + 1)(x2 + x + 1). The three factors on the right are mutually coprime and hence they all have to be ﬁfth powers. In particular, x = r5 for some integer r. This implies x3 + 1 = r15 + 1, which is not a ﬁfth power unless r = −1 or r = 0. This implies there are no solutions to the given equation. 2. In a triangle ABC , AD is the altitude from A, and H is the orthocentre. Let K be the centre of the circle passing through D and tangent to BH at H . Prove that the line DK bisects AC . Solution. Note that ∠KHB = 90◦ . Therefore ∠KDA = ∠KHD = 90◦ − ∠BHD = ∠HBD = ∠HAC . On the other hand, if M is the midpoint of AC then it is the circumcenter of triangle ADC and therefore ∠M DA = ∠M AD. This proves that D, K, M are collinear and hence DK bisects AC . 3. Consider the expression 20132 + 20142 + 20152 + · · · + n2 . Prove that there exists a natural number n > 2013 for which one can change a suitable number of plus signs to minus signs in the above expression to make the resulting expression equal 9999. Solution. For any integer k we have −k 2 + (k + 1)2 + (k + 2)2 − (k + 3)2 = −4 . Note that 9999 − (20132 + 20142 + 20152 + 20162 + 20172 ) = −4m for some positive integer m. Therefore, it follows that 9999 =(20132 + 20142 + 20152 + 20162 + 20172 )

−(4r + 2014)2 + (4r + 2015)2 + (4r + 2016)2 − (4r + 2017)2 .

4. Let ABC be a triangle with ∠A = 90◦ and √ AB = AC . Let D and E be points on the segment BC such that BD : DE : EC = 1 : 2 : 3. Prove that ∠DAE = 45◦ . Solution. Rotating the conﬁguraiton about A by 90◦ , the point B goes to the point C . Let P denote the image of the point D under this rotation. Then CP √ = BD and ∠ACP = ◦ ∠ABC = 45 , so ECP is a right-angled triangle with CE : CP = 3 : 1. Hence P E = ED. It follows that ADEP is a kite with AP = AD and P E = ED. Therefore AE is the angular bisector of ∠P AD. This implies that ∠DAE = ∠P AD/2 = 45◦ .

5. Let n ≥ 3 be a natural number and let P be a polygon with n sides. Let a1 , a2 , . . . , an be the lengths of the sides of P and let p be its perimeter. Prove that a1 a2 an + + ··· + < 2. p − a1 p − a2 p − an Solution. If r and s are positive real numbers such that r < s then r/s < (r + x)/(s + x) for any positive real x. Note that, by triangle inequality, ai < p − ai , so ai 2ai < , p − ai p for all i = 1, , 2 . . . , n. Summing this inequality over i we get the desired inequality. 6. For a natural number n, let T (n) denote the number of ways we can place n objects of weights 1, 2, . . . , n on a balance such that the sum of the weights in each pan is the same. Prove that T (100) > T (99). Solution. Let S (n) denote the collection of subsets A of X (n) = {1, 2, . . . , n} such that the sum of the elements of A equals n(n + 1)/4. Then the given inequality is equivalent to |S (100)| > |S (99)|. We shall give a map f : S (99) → S (100) which is one-to-one but not onto. Note that this will prove the required inequality. Suppose that A is an element of S (99). If 50 ∈ A then deﬁne f (A) = (A \ {50}) ∪ {100}. Otherwise, deﬁne f (A) = A ∪ {50}. If A and B are elements of S (99) such that f (A) = f (B ) then either 50 belongs to both these sets or neither of these sets. In either of the cases we have A = B . Therefore f is a one-to-one function. Note that every element in the range of f contains exactly one of 50 and 100. Let Bi = {i, 101 − i}. Then B1 ∪ B2 ∪ · · · B24 ∪ B50 is an element of S (100). Clearly, this is not in the range of f . Thus f is not an onto function. ——— ———
