Let $ABCD$ be an cyclic quadrilateral and let $HA, HB, HC, HD$ be the orthocentres of triangles $BCD, CDA, DAB$, and ABC respectively. Prove that the quadrilaterals $ABCD$ and $H_AH_BH_CH_D$ are congruent.

Solve in positive integers $\big(1+\frac{1}{x}\big)\big(1+\frac{1}{y}\big)\big(1+\frac{1}{z}\big)=2$


Calculate the value of $$\dfrac{2014^4+4 \times 2013^4}{2013^2+4027^2}-\dfrac{2012^4+4 \times 2013^4}{2013^2+4025^2}$$

Let function $f(x)$ satisfy:  $$\int^1_0 3f (x) dx +\int^2_1 2f (x) dx = 7$$

and $$\int^2_0 f (x) dx + \int^2_1 f (x) dx = 1$$

Find the value of $$\int^2_0 f (x) dx$$


Let $f_n (x) = (2 + (−2)^n ) x^2 + (n + 3) x + n^2$.

  1. Write down $f_3(x)$ and find its maximum value. Also determine for what value of $n$ does the function $f_n(x)$ have a maximum value (as $x$ varies). You do not need to compute this maximum value.
  2. Write down $f_1(x)$. Calculate $f_1(f_1(x))$ and $f_1(f_1(f_1(x)))$. Find an expression, simplified as much as possible, for $$\underbrace{f_1(f_1(\cdots f_1(x)))}_{k}$$
  3. Write down $f_2(x)$. Find the degree of the function $$\underbrace{f_2(f_2(\cdots f_2(x)))}_{k}$$

Find the area of the region bounded by the curve $y=\sqrt{x}$, the line line $y=x-2$, and the $x-$ axis.


Find the number of $k$ such that the function $y=e^{kx}$ satisfies the equation $$\left(\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}+\frac{dy}{dx}\right)\left(\frac{dy}{dx}-y\right)=y\frac{dy}{dx}$$


Let $a$, $b$, $c$ and $d$ be real numbers. Find the relation of these four numbers such that the two curves $y=ax^2+c$ and $y=bx^2 + d$ have exactly two points of intersections.

A circle of radius $2$, center on the origin, is drawn on a grid of points with integer coordinates. Let $n$ be the grid points that lie within or on the circle. What is the smallest amount of radius needs to increase by for there to be $(2n-5)$ grid points within or on the circle?


A particle moves in the $xy$-plane, starting at the origin $(0, 0)$. At each turn, the particle may move in one of the two ways:

  • it may move two to the right and one up
  • it may move one to the right and two up

What is the closet distance the particle may come to the point $(25, 75)$?


Find the value of $c$ such that two parabolas $y=x^2+c$ and $y^2=x$ touch at a single point.
