### Brilliant problem

Any hint is expected..

*Consider the polynomial $P(x)=x^{3}+3x+1$ with roots $r_{1},r_{2},r_{3}$.

Find the value of $(r_{1}^{2}+r_{1}+1)(r_{2}^{2}+r_{2}+1)(r_{3}^{2}+r_{3}+1)$.

### Con..Con..confusion

I have a confusion in understanding a problem from Brilliant.org.Here is the problem and I request others not to give the solution nor the answer of the problem.I posted the problem to understand how the problem is operated! A sequence of polynomials $f_{k}(x)$ is defined as follows $f_{0}(x)=1$ ;$f...

### Re: Help with Combinatorics

Look at the following examples,since you are reading Marcus I don't think you will have any problem understanding my languages. Consider the string:$AABBABA$,Now what you have to do is to make some words cutting from the main string.If you want to cut a $n$ digit word from the main string always cut...

### Help me out!!!

Find the maximum value of the positive integer $n$ that satisfies the following inequality,

$a_{1}^{2}+a_{2}^{2}+a_{3}^{2}+a_{4}^{2}+...+a_{n+1}^{2} \geq a_{n+1}(a_{1}+a_{2}+....+a_{n})$.

where $a_{i}$ is an arbitrary real number.$i \in (1,2,3,....,n+1)$.

$a_{1}^{2}+a_{2}^{2}+a_{3}^{2}+a_{4}^{2}+...+a_{n+1}^{2} \geq a_{n+1}(a_{1}+a_{2}+....+a_{n})$.

where $a_{i}$ is an arbitrary real number.$i \in (1,2,3,....,n+1)$.

### Re: Rajshahi MO 2013, Secondary 1

And what is the answer for a regular n-gon where 'n' is even? I think that will be $\displaystyle \binom{n}{4}-\binom{\frac{n}{2}}{2}$ .

### Number theoretic

Prove that, $\frac{1}{1}+\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{3}+\frac{1}{4}+...+\frac{1}{n}$ is never an integer for $n \geq 2$

### Re: Rubik's Cube Comb

How?? :o :o Shouldn't it be $12! \times 2^{12} \times 8! \times 3^{8} ???$ I don't know If I am right or wrong...For the corner pieces the approach should be as below: "There are $8$ corner pieces,Each piece having $3$ colors.For our advantage,at first we assume that each corner piece is painted wit...
