Let $n$ be a positive integer. A pair of $n$-tuples $(a_1,....a_n)$ and $(b_1,...b_n)$ with integer entries is called an exquisite pair if $|a_1b_1 +...+ a_nb_n| \leq 1$. Determine the maximum number of distinct $n$-tuples with integer entries such that any two of them form an exquisite pair.

Call a rational number $r$ powerful if $r$ can be expressed in the form $\dfrac{p^k}{q}$ for some relatively prime positive integers $p,q$ and some integer $k > 1$. Let $a,b,c$ be positive rational numbers such that $abc = 1$. Suppose there exist positive integers $x,y,z$ such that $a^x + b^y + c^z$...

Let $\bigtriangleup ABC$ be a triangle with $AB < AC$. Let $D$ be the intersection point of the internal bisector of $\angle BAC$ and the circumcircle of $\bigtriangleup ABC$. Let $Z$ be the intersection point of the perpendicular bisector of $AC$ with the external bisector of $\angle BAC$. Prove th...

We call a $5$-tuple of integers arrangeable if its elements can be labeled $a, b, c, d, e$ in some order so that $a-b+c-d+e = 29$. Determine all $2017$-tuples of integers $n_1,n_2,...,n_{2017}$ such that if we place them in a circle in clockwise order, then any $5$-tuple of numbers in consecutive po...

My solution Let $BD$ and $CD$ meet $AC$ and $AD$ at $X$ and $Y$ resp. lets define $\angle ACE = \beta$, $\angle DCE = \alpha$, $\angle BDA = \theta$, $\angle CDB = \gamma$ Now, we can easily get that $\bigtriangleup ABD \cong \bigtriangleup ACE$ and $\bigtriangleup BCD \cong \bigtriangleup CDE$ this...
