Problem 1

A positive integer is called a dragon if it can be written as the sum of four positive integers $a,b,c,$ and $d$ such that $a+4=b-4=4c=d/4.$ Find the smallest dragon.

Solution

Problem 2

The set $S$ consists of all integers from $1$ to $2007,$ inclusive. For how many elements $n$ in $S$ is $f(n) = \frac{2n^3+n^2-n-2}{n^2-1}$ an integer?

Solution

Problem 3

Let $S$ be the sum of all positive integers $n$ such that $n^2+12n-2007$ is a perfect square. Find the remainder when $S$ is divided by $1000.$

Solution

Problem 4

Let $n$ be the smallest positive integer for which there exist positive real numbers $a$ and $b$ such that $(a+bi)^n=(a-bi)^n$. Compute $\frac{b^2}{a^2}$.

Solution

Problem 5

Given that $iz^2=1+\frac 2z + \frac{3}{z^2}+\frac{4}{z ^3}+\frac{5}{z^4}+\cdots$ and $z=n\pm \sqrt{-i},$ find $\lfloor 100n \rfloor.$

Solution

Problem 6

If $\tan 15^\circ \tan 25^\circ \tan 35^\circ =\tan \theta$ and $0^\circ \le \theta \le 180^\circ,$ find $\theta.$

Solution

Problem 7

A right circular cone of base radius $17$cm and slant height $51$cm is given. $P$ is a point on the circumference of the base and the shortest path from $P$ around the cone and back is drawn (see diagram). If the length of this path is $m\sqrt{n},$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $m+n.$

Solution

Problem 8

The positive integers $x_1, x_2, ... , x_7$ satisfy $x_6 = 144$ and $x_{n+3} = x_{n+2}(x_{n+1}+x_n)$ for $n = 1, 2, 3, 4$. Find the last three digits of $x_7$.

Solution

Problem 9

In right triangle $ABC,$ $\angle C=90^\circ.$ Cevians $AX$ and $BY$ intersect at $P$ and are drawn to $BC$ and $AC$ respectively such that $\frac{BX}{CX}=\frac23$ and $\frac{AY}{CY}=\sqrt 3.$ If $\tan \angle APB= \frac{a+b\sqrt{c}}{d},$ where $a,b,$ and $d$ are relatively prime and $c$ has no perfect square divisors excluding $1,$ find $a+b+c+d.$

Solution

Problem 10

Find the number of solutions, in degrees, to the equation $\sin^{10}x + \cos^{10}x = \frac{29}{16}\cos^4 2x,$ where $0^\circ \le x^\circ \le 2007^\circ.$

Solution

Problem 11

Find the sum of the squares of the roots, real or complex, of the system of simultaneous equations

$x+y+z=3,~x^2+y^2+z^2=3,~x^3+y^3+z^3 =3.$

Solution

Problem 12

In quadrilateral $ABCD,$ $m \angle DAC= m\angle DBC$ and $\frac{[ADB]}{[ABC]}=\frac12.$ If $AD=4,$ $BC=6$, $BO=1,$ and the area of $ABCD$ is $\frac{a\sqrt{b}}{c},$ where $a,b,c$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $a+b+c.$


Note*: $[ABC]$ and $[ADB]$ refer to the areas of triangles $ABC$ and $ADB.$

Solution

Problem 13

In his spare time, Richard Rusczyk shuffles a standard deck of 52 playing cards. He then turns the cards up one by one from the top of the deck until the third ace appears. If the expected (average) number of cards Richard will turn up is $m/n,$ where $m$ and $n$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $m+n.$

Solution

Problem 14

In triangle ABC, $AB = 308$ and $AC=35.$ Given that $AD$, $BE,$ and $CF,$ intersect at $P$ and are an angle bisector, median, and altitude of the triangle, respectively, compute the length of $BC.$

Solution

Problem 15

A $4\times4\times4$ cube is composed of $64$ unit cubes. The faces of $16$ unit cubes are colored red. An arrangement of the cubes is $\mathfrak{Intriguing}$ if there is exactly $1$ red unit cube in every $1\times1\times4$ rectangular box composed of $4$ unit cubes. Determine the number of $\mathfrak{Intriguing}$ colorings.
