Problem 1
In a mathematical contest, three problems, were posed. Among the participants there were 25 students who solved at least one problem each. Of all the contestants who did not solve problem , the number who solved was twice the number who solved . The number of students who solved only problem was one more than the number of students who solved and at least one other problem. Of all students who solved just one problem, half did not solve problem . How many students solved only problem ?
Problem 2
Let be the lengths of the sides of a triangle, and respectively, the angles opposite these sides. Prove that if the triangle is isosceles.
Problem 3
Prove that the sum of the distances of the vertices of a regular tetrahedron from the center of its circumscribed sphere is less than the sum of the distances of these vertices from any other point in space.
Problem 4
Prove that for every natural number , and for every real number (; any integer)
Problem 5
Solve the system of equations where are four different real numbers.
Problem 6
Let be a triangle, and let , , be three points in the interiors of the sides , , of this triangle. Prove that the area of at least one of the three triangles , , is less than or equal to one quarter of the area of triangle .
Alternative formulation: Let be a triangle, and let , , be three points on the segments , , , respectively. Prove that
