Problem 3

Find all real solutions from the following system of equations:

$\left\{\begin{array}{l}x+y+z = 6\\x^2 + y^2 + z^2 = 12\\x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = 24\end{array}\right.$


Problem 4

Given a triangle $ABC$ with $AC > BC$. On the circumcircle of triangle $ABC$ there exists point $D$, which is the midpoint of arc $AB$ that contains $C$. Let $E$ be a point on $AC$ such that $DE$ is perpendicular to $AC$. Prove that $AE = EC + CB$.


Problem 5

Nine of the following ten numbers: $4,5,6,7,8,12,13,16,18,19$ are going to be filled into empty spaces in the $3 \times 5$ table shown below. After all spaces are filled, the sum of the numbers on each row will be the same. And so with the sum of the numbers on each column, will also be the same. Determine all possible fillings.

$\begin{array} {|c|c|c|} \cline{1-3} 10 & & \\ \cline{1-3} & & 9 \\ \cline{1-3} & 3 & \\ \cline{1-3} 11 & & 17 \\ \cline{1-3} & 20 & \\ \cline{1-3} \end{array}$


Problem 6

Find all prime number $p$ such that $4p^2 + 1$ and $6p^2 + 1$ are also prime.


Problem 7

Let $ABCD$ be a rhombus with $\angle A = 60^\circ$, and $P$ is the intersection of diagonals $AC$ and $BD$. Let $Q$, $R$, and $S$ are three points on the rhombus' perimeter. If $PQRS$ is also a rhombus, show that exactly one of $Q$, $R$, and $S$ is located on the vertices of rhombus $ABCD$.
