## Day 1

Note: For any geometry problem whose statement begins with an asterisk (), the first page of the solution must be a large, in-scale, clearly labeled diagram. Failure to meet this requirement will result in an automatic 1-point deduction.

### Problem 1

Prove that there are infinitely many distinct pairs of relatively prime positive integers and such that is divisible by .

### Problem 2

Consider the equation

(a) Prove that there are infinitely many pairs of positive integers satisfying the equation.

(b) Describe all pairs of positive integers satisfying the equation.

### Problem 3

() Let be an equilateral triangle and let be a point on its circumcircle. Let lines and intersect at ; let lines and intersect at ; and let lines and intersect at . Prove that the area of triangle is twice the area of triangle .
