Problem 1

A positive integer is called a dragon if it can be partitioned into four positive integers $\displaystyle a,b,c,$ and $\displaystyle d$ such that $\displaystyle a+4=b-4=4c=d/4.$ Find the smallest dragon.

Solution

Problem 2

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

Solution

Problem 3

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

Solution

Problem 4

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

Solution

Problem 5

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

Solution

Problem 6

If $\displaystyle \tan 15^\circ \tan 25^\circ \tan 35^\circ =\tan \theta$ and $\displaystyle 0^\circ \le \theta \le 360^\circ,$ find $\displaystyle \theta.$

Solution

Problem 7

A right circular cone of base radius $\displaystyle 17$cm and slant height $\displaystyle 34$cm is given. $\displaystyle P$ is a point on the circumference of the base and the shortest path from $\displaystyle P$ around the cone and back is drawn (see diagram). If the minimum distance from the vertex $\displaystyle V$ to this path is $\displaystyle m\sqrt{n},$ where $\displaystyle m$ and $\displaystyle n$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $\displaystyle m+n.$

Solution

Problem 8

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

Solution

Problem 9

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

Solution

Problem 10

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

Solution

Problem 11

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

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

Solution

Problem 12

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


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

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 $\displaystyle m/n,$ where $\displaystyle m$ and $\displaystyle n$ are relatively prime positive integers, find $\displaystyle m+n.$

Solution

Problem 14

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

Solution

Problem 15

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