2 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s Cayley 1. Four times the average of two different positive numbers is equal to three times the greater one. The difference between the numbers is three less than the average. What are the two numbers? It is good to give the numbers names, so let them be a and b, where b is the larger. The first fact we are given says that 4 a + b = 3b, 2 and the second says that b a = a + b 3. 2 We may simplify the first equation to obtain 2(a + b) = 3b, that is, 2a = b; multiplying the second equation by 2, we get 2b 2a = a + b 6, that is, b = 3a 6. Equating these values of b, we obtain 3a 6 = 2a, that is, a = 6, and hence b = 12. So the two numbers are 6 and 12. UKMT March

3 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s 2. The diagram shows three adjacent vertices A, B and C of a regular polygon with forty-two sides, and a regular heptagon ABDE FGH. The polygons are placed together edge-to-edge. Prove that triangle BCD is equilateral. H G F E D A B C One can prove that a triangle is equilateral in several different ways, and the diagram gives a few hints about which will be easiest. Two of the sides and one of the angles look more important than the other side and the other two angles, so we ll talk about them. G F E All sides of the heptagon are of equal length, so AB = BD; similarly all sides of the 42-sided polygon are of equal length, so AB = BC. Thus BD = BC, making triangle DBC isosceles. We ll now compute the angle DBC by extending the common side of the two polygons to X, as shown in the diagram alongside. We see that angle DBC is the sum of the external angles of two regular polygons. H A B D X C Thus DBC = DBX + XBC = ( 1 = ) = = 60. Hence DBC is an isosceles triangle with an angle of 60, which means that it is equilateral (because all three angles are 60, so that all the sides are equal). UKMT March

4 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s 3. Peaches spends exactly 3.92 on some fruit, choosing from apples costing 20p each and pears costing 28p each. How many of each type of fruit might she have bought? First we should try to translate this word problem into algebra. Let a be the number of apples and p the number of pears. Then what we have is that 20a + 28p = 392. All these numbers are divisible by 4, so we may divide each term by 4 to obtain 5a + 7p = 98. Now 98 is a multiple of 7, and 7p is a multiple of 7, so that 5a is also a multiple of 7. This means that a itself is a multiple of 7. So we can have a = 0 (giving p = 14), or a = 7 (giving p = 9), or a = 14 (giving p = 4). We can t take a to be a higher multiple of 7 because then 5a 105, so that 20a 420, which means that Peaches would be spending more on apples than she spends altogether. Hence the numbers of each type of fruit that Peaches might have bought are shown in the following table. Apples Pears UKMT March

5 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s 4. The point X lies inside the square ABCD and the point Y lies outside the square, in such a way that triangles X AB and Y AD are both equilateral. Prove that XY = AC. See the diagram alongside. We ll start by working out some angles at A, since that is the vertex where the most is going on. Firstly, DAB = 90 since ABCD is a square. Also, each of angles X AB and Y AD is 60 since each of the triangles X AB and Y AD is equilateral. Y D A X C B Therefore Y AX = Y AD + DAB X AB = = 90. Also, since each of the equilateral triangles shares a side with the square, they have sides that are the same length as the side of the square. In particular, Y A = AB and AX = BC. It follows that the triangles Y AX and ABC are congruent (SAS), and hence XY = AC. There are many other solutions. For example, it is possible to prove that XY is a diagonal of a square congruent to ABCD. UKMT March

6 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s 5. In a sports league there are four teams and every team plays every other team once. A team scores 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and 0 points for a loss. What is the smallest number of points a team could have at the end of the league and still score more points than each of the other teams? Each team plays every other team once, so the number of games is (we divide by 2 since team A playing team B is the same game as team B playing team A). In other words, there are six games. Each game contributes 2 or 3 points in total, depending on whether it was drawn or won, so the total number of points in the league is 12 + w, where w is the number of won games. So the total number of points in the league is at least 12 and at most 18. Consider the number of points at the end of the league scored by a team scoring more points than every other team. 3 points or fewer There are at least 9 other points scored in the league, and so it is thus not possible for every other team to score 2 points or fewer: that would make at most 6 points. 4 points The only way for a team to score 4 points is , so there are at least two won games. That means that the total number of points is at least 14, so the other teams have at least 10 points between them. It is thus not possible for each of them to score 3 points or fewer: that would make at most 9 points. 5 points This is possible: label the teams A, B, C and D; if A beats D but every other game is drawn, then A has 5 points, B and C have 3 points and D has 2 points. Hence the answer is 5. UKMT March

7 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Cayley s 6. We write pq to denote the two-digit integer with tens digit p and units digit q. For which values of a, b and c are the two fractions ab ba from 1? Write this using proper algebra: the question asks us to find solutions to bc and equal and different cb 10a + b 10b + a = 10b + c 10c + b, (1) where a, b and c are integers from 1 to 9. (None of them can be 0 because ab and so on are two-digit numbers). Multiplying each side of (1) by (10b + a)(10c + b), we obtain Therefore so that Hence that is, (10a + b)(10c + b) = (10b + c)(10b + a). 100ac + 10(ab + bc) + b 2 = 100b (ab + bc) + ac, 100ac + b 2 = 100b 2 + ac. 99ac = 99b 2, ac = b 2. Note that a b since ab 1. ba Remembering that a, b and c are integers from 1 to 9, we get the values shown in the following table. b a, c in either order 2 1, 4 3 1, 9 4 2, 8 6 4, 9 UKMT March

8 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s Hamilton 1. The diagram shows four equal arcs placed on the sides of a square. Each arc is a major arc of a circle with radius 1 cm, and each side of the square has length 2 cm. What is the area of the shaded region? Let AB be one of the sides of the square, and let C be the centre of the circular arc standing on that side. Join A and B to C, as shown. Now the triangle ABC has side-lengths (in cm) 2, 1, 1, and so, by the converse of Pythagoras Theorem, it is right-angled, with ACB = 90. Therefore its area is 1 2 cm2. The shaded part of the circle excluding this triangle is 3 4 of a full circle of radius 1 cm, so its area is 3 4 π cm2. The area of the square is 2 cm 2. Therefore the shaded figure, which is made up of four triangles congruent to ABC, four 3 4-circles of radius 1 cm, and the square, has area ( π + 2) cm2, that is, (4 + 3π) cm 2. B A C UKMT March

9 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s 2. A ladybird walks from A to B along the edges of the network shown. She never walks along the same edge twice. However, she may pass through the same point more than once, though she stops the first time she reaches B. How many different routes can she take? A B Label the centre point X, as shown in the diagram alongside. Clearly any route that the ladybird takes from A to B passes through X, and she stops the first time she reaches B. A X B Therefore the number of different routes that the ladybird can take is equal to (the number of routes from A to X) (the number from X to B). The number of routes from A to X is equal to (the number of direct routes from A to X) + (the number from A to X that visit X twice), Now a route from A to X that visits X twice has three possibilities for the first stretch from A to X, after which only 2 edges are available for the start of the return to A, but then only one is permitted for the return from A. Hence the number of routes from A to X is equal to However, the number of routes from X to B is just 3, since the ladybird stops the first time she reaches B. Thus the total number of different routes that the ladybird can take is 9 3, which equals 27. UKMT March

10 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s 3. The diagram shows squares ABCD and E FGD. The length of BF is 10 cm. The area of trapezium BCGF is 35 cm 2. What is the length of AB? C B G F D E A The point F lies on the diagonal BD of the square ABCD, so that FBC is equal to 45. Let point X lie on BC so that FXB = 90, as shown in the diagram alongside. Then XFB = 45 from the angle sum of triangle BXF; it follows from sides opposite equal angles are equal that BX = X F. Now, using Pythagoras Theorem in triangle BX F, we obtain XF = 5 2 cm. But CGFX is a rectangle, so that CG = XF. Let the length of AB be a cm. Then, using the formula for the area of a trapezium, we find that the area of CGFB is equal to ( a + (a 5 2) ). But we are told that this area is equal to 35, so that 2a 5 2 = 35 ( ) = 14 2 C G D X E F B A Therefore and thus 2 = 14 2 = a = a = 6 2. Hence the length of AB is 6 2 cm. UKMT March

11 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s 4. The largest of four different real numbers is d. When the numbers are summed in pairs, the four largest sums are 9, 10, 12 and 13. What are the possible values of d? Let the other three different numbers be a, b and c, in increasing order. Then each of them is less than d, so that c + d is the largest sum of a pair. The next largest is b + d, because it is larger than any other sum of a pair. However, we do not know whether b + c or a + d is next (though each of these is larger than a + c, which in turn is larger than a + b). There are thus two cases to deal with, depending on whether b + c < a + d, or a + d < b + c. (Interpreting the question as meaning that both b + c and a + d may be equal to 10, we obtain no sum 9.) b + c < a + d We have b + c = 9, (1) a + d = 10, (2) b + d = 12 (3) and c + d = 13. (4) From equations (1), (3) and (4), we find that 2d = 16, so that d = 8. a + d < b + c We have From equations (6) to (8), we find that 2d = 15, so that d = 7.5. a + d = 9, (5) b + c = 10, (6) b + d = 12 (7) and c + d = 13. (8) In each case, we may find the values of a, b and c from the equations, and so check that these fit the conditions in the question. Therefore the possible values of d are 7.5 and 8. UKMT March

12 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s 5. In the trapezium ABCD, the lines AB and DC are parallel, BC = AD, DC = 2AD and AB = 3AD. The angle bisectors of DAB and CBA intersect at the point E. What fraction of the area of the trapezium ABCD is the area of the triangle ABE? Let BC = AD = k, so that DC = 2k and AB = 3k, and let the point X lie on AB so that XBCD is a parallelogram, as shown in the diagram on the left below. It follows that DX = k and XB = 2k (opposite sides of a parallelogram), so that AX = k. Hence triangle AXD has three equal sides it is an equilateral triangle. In particular, this means that angle DAX is equal to 60. D 2k C D E C k k A X B A B As a consequence, the trapezium ABCD is actually made up from five equilateral triangles, as shown in the diagram on the right above, so that the the angle bisectors of DAB and CBA meet on CD, meaning that point E is actually the midpoint of CD. Now the triangle ABE comprises one equilateral triangle and two half-rhombuses. The area of the two half-rhombuses is equal to the area of two equilateral triangles. Therefore the area of the triangle ABE is 3 5 of the area of the trapezium ABCD. UKMT March

13 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Hamilton s 6. Solve the pair of simultaneous equations x 2 + 3y = 10 and 3 + y = 10 x. First, let us number the two given equations, so that it is easy to refer to them: x 2 + 3y = 10 and (1) 3 + y = 10 x. (2) To eliminate one of the two unknowns, we may substitute from equation (2) into equation (1), but this leads to a cubic equation. Though it is perfectly possible to solve this cubic equation, we present another method that completely avoids dealing with a cubic. By subtracting x equation (2) from equation (1), we get so that x 2 + 3y 3x xy = 0 (x 3)(x y) = 0. Hence either x = 3 or x = y. We deal with each of these two cases separately. x = 3 Using either equation (1) or equation (2), we obtain y = 1 3. x = y Using equation (1) we obtain so that Hence x 2 + 3x = 10 x 2 + 3x 10 = 0. (x 2)(x + 5) = 0, and therefore either x = 2 or x = 5. If x = 2 then y = 2; if x = 5 then y = 5. By checking in the two given equations, we find that all three solutions are valid. Thus there are three solutions of the simultaneous equations, namely x = 3 and y = 1 3, or x = 2 and y = 2, or x = 5 and y = 5. UKMT March

14 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s Maclaurin 1. The diagram shows a semicircle of radius r inside a right-angled triangle. The shorter edges of the triangle are tangents to the semicircle, and have lengths a and b. The diameter of the semicircle lies on the hypotenuse of the triangle. b r a Prove that 1 r = 1 a + 1 b. C Q P A Label the points as shown above, and join O to P, Q and C. Then OP is perpendicular to BC and OQ is perpendicular to CA, since each of OP and OQ is a radius and each of BC and CA is a tangent. O B Method 1 The area of triangle AOC is 1 2 rb, that of triangle BOC is 1 2 ra and that of triangle ABC is 1 2 ab. Hence, adding, we have Dividing each term by 1 2abr, we obtain 1 2 ab = 1 2 rb ra. 1 r = 1 a + 1 b. UKMT March

15 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s Method 2 Since OPCQ is a square, AQ = b r. The triangles AOQ and ABC are similar (AA), so that Multiplying each side by b(b r), we get r b r = a b. and now, dividing each term by abr, we obtain rb = ab ar 1 r = 1 a + 1 b. UKMT March

16 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s 2. How many triangles (with non-zero area) are there with each of the three vertices at one of the dots in the diagram? Method 1 There are 17 dots in the array, and we must choose 3 of them to obtain a triangle. This can be done in ( 17) 3 = 680 ways. However, some of these triangles have zero area. The triangle will have zero area if we choose all three dots on the same line. Hence the number of triangles of zero area is 2 ( 9 3) = 2 84 = 168. So there are 512 triangles of non-zero area. Method 2 We may choose two points on the line across the page in ( 9 2) = 36 ways, and one point on the line up the page (but not at the centre) in 8 ways. These choices give rise to 8 36 = 288 triangles of non-zero area. Similarly we obtain another 288 triangles from two points on the line up the page and one on the line across the page. But we have counted twice triangles with a vertex at the point where the lines meet, and there are 8 8 = 64 of these. So altogether we have = 512 triangles. UKMT March

17 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s 3. How many solutions are there to the equation where m and n are integers? By rewriting the equation in the form m 4 + 8n = n m 2, m 4 42m = n 4 8n 2 and then completing the square on each side, we obtain Taking the square root of each side, we get Hence there are two cases to consider. m 2 21 = n 2 4 In this case, we have (m 2 21) 2 = (n 2 4) 2. m 2 21 = ±(n 2 4). so that m 2 n 2 = 21 4, (m n)(m + n) = 17. Therefore, because 17 is prime, m n and m + n are equal to 1 and 17, or 1 and 17, in some order. Thus in this case there are four solutions for (m, n), namely (±9, ±8). m 2 21 = (n 2 4) In this case, we have Hence m 2 + n 2 = m 2 + n 2 = 5 2. Now a square is non-negative, so that 5 m, n 5. Thus in this case there are twelve solutions for (m, n), namely (0, ±5), (±5, 0), (±3, ±4) and (±4, ±3). Therefore altogether there are sixteen solutions to the given equation. UKMT March

18 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s 4. The diagram shows a square PQRS with sides of length 2. The point T is the midpoint of RS, and U lies on QR so that SPT = T PU. S T R U What is the length of UR? P Q Method 1 Let F be the point on PU so that T FP = 90 and join T to F and U, as shown. Then triangles PT S and PT F are congruent (AAS), so that T F = 1. Hence triangles TUR and TUF are congruent (RHS), so that RTU = UT F. Now the four angles at T are angles on the straight line RTS, so they add up to 180. From the fact that TSP = 90 (because PQRS is a square), we have (90 SPT) + (90 T PF) + RTU + UTF = 180. S 2 P 1 T 1 F R U Q It follows that RTU = SPT. Therefore triangles RTU and SPT are similar (AA), so that UR RT = TS SP = 1 2. Thus UR = 1 2. UKMT March

19 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s Method 2 Let SPT and T PU both be equal to θ and join T to Q and U, as shown. Then triangles TSP and T RQ are congruent (SAS), so that TQR is also equal to θ. From the converse of angles in the same segment it follows that quadrilateral UT PQ is cyclic. Hence, from opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral, we know that UTP is 90, because PQR is 90. Now the four angles at T are angles on the straight line RTS, so they add up to 180. It follows that RTU is equal to θ. S 2 P θ θ 1 T 1 R U Q Therefore triangles RTU and SPT are similar (AA), so that UR RT = TS SP = 1 2. Thus UR = 1 2. UKMT March

20 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s 5. Solve the pair of simultaneous equations (a + b) ( a 2 b 2) = 4 and (a b) ( a 2 + b 2) = 5 2. Since a 2 b 2 = (a b)(a + b), we may write the first equation as (a + b) 2 (a b) = 4. Note that a b 0, since this would make the left-hand side of both equations zero, which is false. Hence we can divide the first equation by the second and cancel the term a b to produce (a + b) 2 a 2 + b 2 = 8 5. Multiplying each side by 5 ( a 2 + b 2), we get 5 ( (a + b) 2) = 8 ( a 2 + b 2). When we multiply this out and collect like terms, we obtain so either a = 3b or b = 3a. 0 = 3a 2 10ab + 3b 2 = (3a b)(a 3b), We substitute each of these in turn back into the first equation. a = 3b Then 4b 8b 2 = 4, so that b = 1 2 and a = 3 2. b = 3a Then 4a ( 8a 2) = 4, so that a = 1 2 and b = 3 2. Hence we have two solutions (a, b) = ( 3 2, 1 ) ( 2 or (a, b) = 1 2, 3 2). These solutions should be checked by substituting back into the second equation. UKMT March

21 IMOK Olympiad 2017 Maclaurin s 6. The diagram shows a 10 9 board with seven 2 1 tiles already in place. What is the largest number of additional 2 1 tiles that can be placed on the board, so that each tile covers exactly two 1 1 cells of the board, and no tiles overlap? The first observation is that it is possible to add a further 36 tiles to the grid. The diagram shows one way of doing this: the additional tiles are lighter grey and the uncovered squares are indicated. There are 36 additional tiles in the grid, and four squares are left uncovered. We show that you cannot improve on this. u u u u Colour the grid like a chessboard with alternating grey and white cells, as shown in Figure 1. Notice that any tile will cover one cell of each colour. u Figure 1 u Figure 2 Figure 3 Suppose that two opposite corners are left uncovered, as shown in Figure 2. Then the remainder of the board consists of two separate staircases. The upper staircase has 17 grey and 20 white cells, so that at most seventeen 2 1 tiles may be placed there. Similarly for the lower staircase: at most seventeen 2 1 tiles may be placed there. In other words, with this arrangement, at most 34 additional tiles may be placed. The only way to cover the corners whilst also reducing the excess (the difference between the number of cells of one colour and the number of cells of the other) in both staircases is to place tiles in the corners as shown in Figure 3. This reduces the number of white cells in the upper staircase by one, and reduces the number of grey cells in the lower staircase by one. Once again at most seventeen tiles may be placed in each staircase, achieving at most 36 additional tiles in total. Therefore the greatest number of additional 2 1 tiles that can be placed on the board is 36. UKMT March
