Tartu, November 11, 1994

(x ◦ y) ◦ z + (y ◦ z) ◦ x + (z ◦ x) ◦ y = 0 .

2. Let a1 , a2 , . . . , a9 be any non-negative numbers such that a1 = a9 = 0 and at least one of the

numbers is non-zero. Prove that for some i, 2 ≤ i ≤ 8, the inequality ai−1 + ai+1 < 2ai holds.

Will the statement remain true if we change the number 2 in the last inequality to 1.9 ?

8. Show that for any integer a ≥ 5 there exist integers b and c, c ≥ b ≥ a, such that a, b, c are the

lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle.

9. Find all pairs of positive integers (a, b) such that 2a + 3b is the square of an integer.

10. How many positive integers satisfy the following three conditions:

a) All digits of the number are from the set {1, 2, 3, 4, 5};

b) The absolute value of the difference between any two consecutive digits is 1;

c) The integer has 1994 digits ?

11. Let N S and EW be two perpendicular diameters of a circle C. A line ` touches C at point

S. Let A and B be two points on C, symmetric with respect to the diameter EW . Denote

the intersection points of ` with the lines N A and N B by A0 and B 0 , respectively. Show that

17. In a certain kingdom, the king has decided to build 25 new towns on 13 uninhabited islands so

that on each island there will be at least one town. Direct ferry connections will be established

between any pair of new towns which are on different islands. Determine the least possible

number of these connections.

18. There are n lines (n > 2) given in the plane. No two of the lines are parallel and no three of them

intersect at one point. Every point of intersection of these lines is labelled with a natural number

between 1 and n − 1. Prove that, if and only if n is even, it is possible to assign the labels in

such a way that every line has all the numbers from 1 to n − 1 at its points of intersection with

the other n − 1 lines.

19. The Wonder Island Intelligence Service has 16 spies in Tartu. Each of them watches on some

of his colleagues. It is known that if spy A watches on spy B, then B does not watch on A.

Moreover, any 10 spies can numbered in such a way that the first spy watches on the second, the

second watches on the third, . . . , the tenth watches on the first. Prove that any 11 spies can also

be numbered is a similar manner.

20. An equilateral triangle is divided into 9 000 000 congruent equilateral triangles by lines parallel

to its sides. Each vertex of the small triangles is coloured in one of three colours. Prove that

there exist three points of the same colour being the vertices of a triangle with its sides parallel

to the lines of the original triangle.
