1. In an acute triangle ABC, points D, E, F are located on the sides BC, CA, AB respectively

such that

CD CA AE AB BF BC

= , = , = .

CE CB AF AC BD BA

Prove that AD, BE, CF are the altitudes of ABC.

CD · CB ax

CE = = .

CA b

Since AE = AC − CE = b − CE, we obtain

b2 − ax AE · AC b2 − ax

AE = , AF = = .

Finally we obtain

c2 − b2 + ax

BD = .

a

Using BD = a − x, we get

a 2 − c2 + b 2

x= .

2a

However, if L is the foot of perpendicular from A on to BC then, using Pythagoras theorem

in triangles ALB and ALC we get

b2 − LC 2 = c2 − (a − LC)2

can also infer that x = b cos C from cosine rule in triangle ABC. This implies that CD = CL,

since CL = b cos C from right triangle ALC. Thus AD is altitude on to BC. Similar proof

works for the remaining altitudes.

Alternately, we see that CD ·CB = CE ·CA, so that ABDE is a cyclic quadrilateral. Similarly

we infer that BCEF and CAF D are also cyclic quadrilaterals. (See Fig. 2.) Thus ∠AEF =

∠B = ∠CED. Moreover ∠BED = ∠DAF = ∠DCF = ∠BCF = ∠BEF . It follows that

∠BEA = ∠BEC and hence each is a right angle thus proving that BE is an altitude. Similarly

we prove that CF and AD are altitudes. (Note that the concurrence of the lines AD, BE,

CF are not required.)

2. Solve the following equation for real x:

to u3 + v 3 = (u + v)3 . Since (u + v)3 = u3 + v 3 + 3uv(u + v), it follows that uv(u + v) = 0.

Hence u = 0 or v = 0 or u + v = 0. Thus we obtain x2 + x − 2 = 0 or 2x2 − x − 1 = 0 or

x2 − 1 = 0. Solving each of them we get x = 1, −2 or x = 1, −1/2 or x = 1, −1. Thus x = 1 is

a root of multiplicity 3 and the other roots are −1, −2, −1/2.

we can write the equation in the form

This can be solved as earlier or expanding every thing and simplifying the relation.)

3. Let a, b, c be positive integers such that a divides b2 , b divides c2 and c divides a2 . Prove that

abc divides (a + b + c)7 .

Solution: Consider the expansion of (a + b + c)7 . We show that each term here is divisible

by abc. It contains terms of the form rklm ak bl cm , where rklm is a constant( some binomial

coefficient) and k, l, m are nonnegative integers such that k + l + m = 7. If k ≥ 1, l ≥ 1, m ≥ 1,

then abc divides ak bl cm . Hence we have to consider terms in which one or two of k, l, m are

zero. Suppose for example k = l = 0 and consider c7 . Since b divides c2 and a divides c4 ,

it follows that abc divides c7 . A similar argument gives the result for a7 or b7 . Consider the

case in which two indices are nonzero, say for example, bc6 . Since a divides c4 , here again abc

divides bc6 . If we take b2 c5 , then also using a divides c4 we obtain the result. For b3 c4 , we use

the fact that a divides b2 . Similar argument works for b4 c3 , b5 c2 and b6 c. Thus each of the

terms in the expansion of (a + b + c)7 is divisible by abc.

4. Suppose the integers 1, 2, 3, . . . , 10 are split into two disjoint collections a1 , a2 , a3 , a4 , a5 and

b1 , b2 , b3 , b4 , b5 such that

a1 < a2 < a3 < a4 < a5 ,

b1 > b2 > b3 > b4 > b5 .

(i) Show that the larger number in any pair {aj , bj }, 1 ≤ j ≤ 5, is at least 6.

(ii) Show that |a1 − b1 | + |a2 − b2 | + |a3 − b3 | + |a4 − b4 | + |a5 − b5 | = 25 for every such partition.

2

Solution:

(i) Fix any pair {aj , bj }. We have a1 < a2 < · · · < aj−1 < aj and bj > bj+1 > · · · > b5 . Thus

there are j − 1 numbers smaller than aj and 5 − j numbers smaller than bj . Together

they account for j − 1 + 5 − j = 4 distinct numbers smaller than aj as well as bj . Hence

the larger of aj and bj is at least 6.

(ii) The first part shows that the larger numbers in the pairs {aj , bj }, 1 ≤ j ≤ 5, are

6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and the smaller numbers are1, 2, 3, 4, 5. This implies that

= 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 − (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5) = 25.

5. The circumference of a circle is divided into eight arcs by a convex quadrilateral ABCD, with

four arcs lying inside the quadrilateral and the remaining four lying outside it. The lengths of

the arcs lying inside the quadrilateral are denoted by p, q, r, s in counter-clockwise direction

starting from some arc. Suppose p + r = q + s. Prove that ABCD is a cyclic quadrilateral.

β3 , ∠P U B = β4 , ∠ECF = γ1 , ∠CF P = γ2 , ∠F P E = γ3 , ∠P EC = γ4 , ∠GDH = δ1 ,

∠DHP = δ2 , ∠HP G = δ3 , ∠P GD = δ4 .

We observe that X X X X

αj = βj = γj = δj = 2π.

It follows that X X

(αj + γj ) = (βj + δj ).

On the other hand, we also have α2 = β4 since P Y = P U . Similarly we have other relations:

β2 = γ4 , γ2 = δ4 and δ2 = α4 . It follows that

α1 + α3 + γ1 + γ3 = β1 + β3 + δ1 + δ3 .

3

But p + r = q + s implies that α3 + γ3 = β3 + δ3 . We thus obtain

α1 + γ1 = β1 + δ1 .

6. For any natural number n > 1, prove the inequality:

Similarly, we see that

(i) 1 ≤ a ≤ b ≤ c ≤ d;

(ii) ab + cd = a + b + c + d + 3.

ab − a − b + 1 + cd − c − d + 1 = 5.

that b − 1 ≥ 2, c − 1 ≥ 2 and d − 1 ≥ 2 so that (a − 1)(b − 1) + (c − 1)(d − 1) ≥ 8. It follows

that a − 1 = 0 or 1.

If a − 1 = 0, then the contribution from (a − 1)(b − 1) to the sum is zero for any choice of b.

But then (c − 1)(d − 1) = 5 implies that c − 1 = 1 and d − 1 = 5 by (i). Again (i) shows that

b − 1 = 0 or 1 since b ≤ c. Taking b − 1 = 0, c − 1 = 1 and d − 1 = 5 we get the solution

(a, b, c, d) = (1, 1, 2, 6). Similarly, b−1 = 1, c−1 = 1 and d−1 = 5 gives (a, b, c, d) = (1, 2, 2, 6).

In the other case a − 1 = 1, we see that b − 1 = 2 is not possible for then c − 1 ≥ 2 and

d − 1 ≥ 2. Thus b − 1 = 1 and this gives (c − 1)(d − 1) = 4. It follows that c − 1 = 1,

d − 1 = 4 or c − 1 = 2, d − 1 = 2. Considering each of these, we get two more solutions:

(a, b, c, d) = (2, 2, 2, 5), (2, 2, 3, 3).

It is easy to verify all these four quadruples are indeed solutions to our problem.
