1. A finite sequence of positive integers mi for i = 1, 2, . . . , 2006 are defined so that m1 = 1 and mi =

10mi−1 + 1 for i > 1. How many of these integers are divisible by 37?

2. Find the minimum value of 2x2 + 2y 2 + 5z 2 − 2xy − 4yz − 4x − 2z + 15 for real numbers x, y, z.

3. A Gaussian prime is a Gaussian integer z = a + bi (where a and b are integers) with no Gaussian

integer factors of smaller absolute value. Factor −4 + 7i into Gaussian primes with positive real parts.

i is a symbol with the property that i2 = −1.

a3 b3 c3

4. Simplify: (a−b)(a−c) + (b−a)(b−c) + (c−a)(c−b)

5. Jerry is bored one day, so he makes an array of Cocoa pebbles. He makes 8 equal rows with the pebbles

remaining in a box. When Kramer drops by and eats one, Jerry yells at him until Kramer realizes he

can make 9 equal rows with the remaining pebbles. After Kramer eats another, he finds he can make

10 equal rows with the remaining pebbles. Find the smallest number of pebbles that were in the box

in the beginning.

6. Let a, b, c be real numbers satisfying:

ab − a = b + 119

bc − b = c + 59

ca − c = a + 71

7. Find all (a, b) so that aabb = n4 − 6n3 for some integer n, where aabb is a four digit number with a

and b non-zero digits. (The answer form was added after the contest)

8. Evaluate:

X 2

x=2

x(x2 − 1)

.

9. Principal Skinner is thinking of two integers m and n and bets Superintendent Chalmers that he will

not be able to determine these integers with a single piece of information. Chalmers asks Skinner the

numerical value of mn + 13m + 13n − m2 − n2 . From the value of this expression alone, he miraculously

determines both m and n. What is the value of the above expression?

P

k

10. Evaluate: ak−1

for |a| > 1. (Due to a typographical error, this was printed as |a| < 1 on contest

k=1

day; this is the intended question)
