I think it would better be 9 pm. That way none will miss it.

Find the number of possible sequences $(a_1,a_2,...,a_n)$ in terms of $n$, with the following conditions:

(i)$a_1=a_2=0$

(ii)$a_1\leq a_2\leq ...\leq a_n$

(iii)$a_i\leq (i-2)$

(i)$a_1=a_2=0$

(ii)$a_1\leq a_2\leq ...\leq a_n$

(iii)$a_i\leq (i-2)$

In my solution, I have replaced $W$ with $Y$, and $V$ with $Z$. So we need to prove that $Y,X,Z$ are collinear. Let $BX\cap ZY=P$. Now it is clear that $\dfrac{BZ}{ZC}=\dfrac{BA\cdot \sin\angle BAZ}{CA\cdot \sin\angle CAZ}=\dfrac{BA\cdot \sin\angle C}{CA\cdot \sin\angle B}$. Thus by using sine law i...

To avoid the confusion, we may write that $x^{2}+2y^{2}\leq |y^{2}-x^{2}|$. Square it, simplify it, then we can get $3x^{2}(x^{2}+2y^{2})\leq 0$.

Clearly $EF\perp AI\Rightarrow EF\perp IM$. Let $EF\cap \omega=G$. Then $\angle IMG=90^{\circ}$. So, $IG$ is a diameter of $\omega$ i.e. $IO\cap EF\in \omega$.

But subsequence does not necessarily need to be of consecutive terms of the original sequence, does it? :? Clearly $F_{m}-F_{n}>F_{n+2}-F_{n}>F_{n}-1>F_{n}-F_{k}$ for all $m\geq (n+2), k\leq (n-1)$. This means $F_{n+1}$ is the only possible term which can be in an arithmetic sequence with $F_{n}$ a...
