3 34 A circle is inscribed in an equilateral triangle of side length 2 Then another circle is inscribed tangent to two sides of the triangle and to the first circle An infinite sequence of such circles is constructed, each tangent to two sides of the triangle and to the previous circle The figure below depicts the first three circles What is the sum of the areas of all the infinitely many circles? 35 Let a n denote the n-digit positive integer all of whose digits are 1 For example, a 3 = 111 What is the greatest common divisor of a 45 and a 140? 36 Find all ordered triples (x, y, z) of integers satisfying x 2 + y 2 + z < xy + 3y + 2z 37 If n is a positive integer, let s(n) denote the integer obtained by removing the last digit of n and placing it in front For example, s(731) = 173 What is the smallest positive integer n ending in 6 satisfying s(n) = 4n? 38 Find all ordered triples (a, b, c) of prime numbers satisfying a(b+c) = 234 and b(a+c) = If n = a b c is a 3-digit number with digits a, b, and c, let f(n) = a + b + c + ab + ac + bc + abc Here the things being summed are products of digits For example, f(234) = = 59 How many 3-digit positive integers n satisfy f(n) = n? 40 Let ABCD be a square of sidelength 2, and let E and F be midpoints of AD and CD, respectively Let G and H be the points where AF intersects EB and BD, respectively What is the area of quadrilateral DEGH? 3

4 Solutions to 2008 contest The first number in brackets is the total number of students (out of 257) who answered it correctly, and the second number is the number of correct responses from the 32 people who scored at least [234,32] This follows since = or 21% [198,29] The price is multiplied by = [198,32] The isosceles triangle is composed of two right triangles 4 [38, 88) [158,32] Her total so far is 312 Out of 500 points, the C-range starts at a total of 350 and ends just before /9 [53,25] Place the sphere as x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1 One vertex of the cube is (x, x, x) satisfying 3x 2 = 1, so x = 1/ 3 Thus one side goes from ( 1 3, 1 3, 1 3 ) to ( 1 3, 1 3, 1 3 ), and hence has s = 2/ 3 The volume is thus 8/(3 3) 6 1/5 [105,28] There are ( 10 2 ) = 10 9/2 possible pairs of numbers, and of these, 9 pairs (from {1,2} to {9,10}) are consecutive The probability is 9/45 7 1/ sin(20 o ) [144,30] We have 1 tan(20 o ) = cos(20o ) sin(20 o ) < 1 sin(20 o ) and 1 cos(20 o ) < 1 sin(20 o ) 8 2 [111,23] For x > 0, x 4 + x is an increasing function going from 0 to Thus it equals 5 for exactly one positive value of x The values of x 4 + x for negative x are exactly the same as those of x 4 + x for positive x, and so x 4 + x = 5 for exactly one negative value of x [38,22] It is = ( ) 4, and 101 is prime [32,17] Squaring the given expression yields = using the Binomial Theorem [120,31] Compute the first few values S 1 = 1, S 2 = 1, S 3 = 2, and S 4 = 2 This pattern will continue, and so S S 2006 = 0, and the desired sum equals S 2007 = ( )/ , 7 1 2, and 12 [48,15] Arrange the subrectangles so that the unknown one is in the lower right If the upper left rectangle has area, respectively, 1, 2, or 3, then the lower right one has area 6, 3/2, or 2/3, each of which must be added to 6 to obtain the total area 13 ( 9 2, 27 4 ) [27,14] Since x 3 = y x, we have x2 = 3y Since y x = 9 y, we have 2y = 9+x This implies 2x 2 = 3x + 27, and so x = (3 ± 15)/4 Only the positive solution x = 9/2 can be used 14 5 [64,23] The denominator can equal any real number greater than 1 Thus the range of f is (0, 6), all positive numbers less than 6 The integers in the range are 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 4

5 15 1/2 [1485,32] Let O denote the center of the hexagon Then triangles ABC and AOC are congruent, and similarly for two other pairs of triangles Triangle ABC is composed of three of these, while the hexagon is composed of six of them [775,265] In the diagram below, we have x+2 x = 3 Thus x = = 3+1 A C 2 D x x B 17 0 [106,29] Out of the 81 equally likely pairs, we tabulate the number of ways each sum can occur: We see that a last digit 0 occurs in nine ways, while any other last digit occurs in eight ways 18 4 [131,30] Adding 4xy to both sides of (x y) 2 0 yields (x + y) 2 4xy Thus, if the asserted inequality holds, then 4(x + y) 4xy (x + y) 2, and so x + y 4 As the inequality holds for x = y = 2, we find that 4 is the smallest value of x + y for which the inequality holds ! [31,19] The trick here is to notice that n (n+1)! = n+1 (n+1)! 1 (n+1)! = 1 n! 1 (n+1)! Thus the desired sum is and all the intermediate terms cancel ( 1 1! 1 2! ) + ( 1 2! 1 3! ) + + ( 1 99! 1 100! ), 20 1/4 [165,31] It is always 1/4 Two perpendicular lines passing through the center of a square divide it into four congruent parts 21 35/29 [23,135] By the Law of Sines, or a comparison of right triangles, we have AC BC = sin(b) sin(a) Looking at and right triangles shows that sin(a) = 3/5 and sin(b) = 21/29 Thus AC BC = =

6 22 8 [88,30] The numbers n are 29, 38, 47, 56, 65, 74, 83, and 92 To see this, note that if n = 10a + b with 1 a 9 and 0 b 9, then n + r(n) = 11(a + b) For this to be a square, we must have a + b = 11, and the listed ways are the only ways to accomplish this 23 (6, 35) [35,21] We have (x 2 y)(x 2 + y) = 71 Thus x 2 + y = 71 and x 2 y = 1 Adding and subtracting these equations yields the only solution [106,29] For an n-gon, there are n(n 3)/2 diagonals This is obtained by noting that each vertex can be connected to n 3 vertices by diagonals, but each diagonal is counted twice in the product n(n 3) 25 5 [68,24] For 1 n 4, we have that n = 1 and n = 4 do not yield a corresponding integer m, but n = 2 and n = 3 yield m = 5 and m = 7, respectively If n 5, then n! ends in 0, so 6(n! + 3) ends in 8, but no square ends in 3, so there are no more m s 26 3 π 2 [81,29] The centers of the circles are vertices of an equilateral triangle of area 3 Inside the intersection of the triangle with the circles, and hence outside our region, are three wedges of area π/6 each [30,14] Its velocity vector is ( )i j, and so its speed is given by ( ) = [45,24] Such a number must be of the form 111a for 1 a 9 and of the form n(n + 1)/2 for some n Thus n(n + 1) = a Either n or n + 1 must be divisible by 37 But n = 37 requires a to be divisible by 19, which it isn t The only solution is obtained when n + 1 = 37, yielding a = 6 If n , then a is too large [20,14] It is all numbers of the form 4k + 2 from 2 to 998 To see this, first note that if n = x 2 y 2 = (x y)(x + y), then n is the product of two even numbers or of two odd numbers, and hence n cannot be of the form 4k + 2 On the other hand, 2k + 1 = (k + 1) 2 k 2 and 4(m + 1) = (m + 2) 2 m /6 [25,17] See the figure below The radius r satisfies r + r 2 1/4 = 3/2 Thus r 2 1/4 = (3/2 r) 2, and so 3r = 10/4 r 6

7 31 5/2 [19,12] We have p(x) = (x 2)(x + 2)(x + 3)(ax + b) + 1, and then 2 = ( 1) 3 4(a + b) + 1 and 2 = ( 3) 1 2( a + b) + 1 Thus 1 = 12a 12b and 1 = 6a 6b We obtain 3 = 24b, and so p(0) = ( 2) 2 3/( 8) + 1 = 5/ /2 [265,20] See the figure below Each side of triangle XY Z is the hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs 1 and Thus the side lengths are 26, and the desired area is 26 3/4 A X D B C Z F E G H Y [18,12] We have that for all n, n i=1 a i = a n+2 3 (A similar, but not identical, relation holds for the ordinary Fibonacci numbers) The claimed relation is easily proved by induction on n (Verify it for n = 1; then assume it is true for n and add a n+1 to both sides to see that it is true for n + 1) Thus the desired sum is a π/8 [15,13] Since the altitudes of an equilateral triangle meet at a point one third of the way along each, the radius of the first circle is and so its area is π/3 All remaining circles form a shrunken version of the entire set of circles, but shrunk by a linear factor of 1/3 Thus the area of all the circles except the first is 1/9 of the total desired area If the desired area is A, then we have A = π/3 + A/9, and so A = 3π/ or a 5 [35,15] Every common divisor of a 140 and a 45 is a divisor of a a a a 45 = a 5 On the other hand, a 5 is a divisor of both a 140 and a 45 For example, a 45 = a 5 ( ) Since a 5 is a common divisor and is a multiple of every common divisor, it is the gcd 36 (1, 2, 1) [10,6] First express the inequality as (x y 2 ) (y 2)2 + (z 1) 2 < 1 Since x, y, and z are integers, this implies z = 1 and y = 1, 2, or 3 If y = 1, we obtain x 2 x < 0, which has no integer solutions If y = 2, we obtain x 2 2x < 0, whose only integer solution is x = 1 If y = 3, we obtain x 2 3x + 2 < 0, which has no integer solutions [22,15] Since 4 6 = 24, n ends 46 Since 4 46 = 184, n ends 846 Since = 3384, n ends 3846 Since = 15384, n ends Since = , n ends Since = , n =

8 38 (13, 11, 7) [24,17] Since a(b + c) = , b(a + c) = , and c(a b) = 2 7, then b + c must equal 117, 78, or 18, b must equal 2, 5, or 11, and c must equal 2 or 7 Thus we must have b = 11 and c = 7 Then a = 13 and all equations are satisfied 39 9 [13,7] Note that f(n) = (a + 1)(b + 1)(c + 1) 1 Thus we must have (a + 1)(b + 1)(c +1) = 100a + 10b +c+1 This simplifies to a(b + 1)(c + 1) + b(c + 1) = 100a+10b Since b, c 9, we have (b + 1)(c + 1) 100 and c , and so equality is obtained if and only if b = c = 9 However, a can equal 1,, /15 [5,5] We use parentheses to denote area of a figure, and refer to the diagram below We have (HDF ) = 1 2 HD DF sin(45) = HD/(2 2), and similarly (AHD) = HD/ 2 Since (HDF ) + (AHD) = 1, we obtain HD = 2 2/3 and (HDF ) = 1/3 If α = F AD, then sin(α) = 1/ 5 and sin(90 α) = 2/ 5 Then (AGE) = AG/(2 5) and (AGB) = 2AG/ 5 Since (AGE) + (AGB) = 1, we obtain AG = 2 5/5 and (AGE) = 1/5 Finally (DEGH) = (ADF ) (HDF ) (AGE) = A α E G D H F B C Alternatively, one can write equations of the three diagonal lines, and use these to find the coordinates of the points G and H, obtaining that the altitudes from G to AE and from H to DF are 2/5 and 2/3, respectively Thus the areas of triangles AGE and HDF are 1/5 and 1/3, respectively 8
