### Re: FE Marathon!

$\textbf{Problem 24}$ Find all functions $f : \mathbb{N}\rightarrow \mathbb{N}$ satisfying following condition: $f(n+1)>f(f(n)), \quad \forall n \in \mathbb{N}.$ Source : IMOSL 1977 Actually this is IMO 1977/P6 . Hint: Try to prove that $f(n) \geq n$ $\forall n \in \mathbb{N}$. Then try to prove ...

### Re: FE Marathon!

Putting y= 0 we get, $f(x^4)=x^3f(x)$ How? putting $y = 0$ gives, $\ f(x^4)=x^3f(x) + f(f(0))$ and you didn't prove that $f(f(0)) = 0$. Or, $f(x^4)=f(t)=x^3f(x)\cdots (2)$[Let $x^4=t$] Now from the question we get, $f(x^4+y)=x^3f(x)+f(f(y))$ Or, $f(t+y)=f(t)+f(y)$[Using (1) and (2)] Which is the c...

### Re: FE Marathon!

I am not sure this solution is correct. Bhaya plz check it if right then I will post a new problem if not then I will probably try more to solve it. Ifx=0 in the given equation, $f(y)=f(f(y))$ Let, $f(t)=q$ for some real t,q Putting y=t in (1) we get, $f(t)=f(f(t))$ Or, $q=f(q)$ Thus, $f(x)=x$ is t...

### Re: Problem solution

The answer is $33$. If all of the $11$ batsmen scored 32 runs, then the total score would be $11 \times 32 = 352$. Since the total score is $358$, at least one batsman needs to score more than $32$ runs. So, the run scored by the highest scorer should be at least $33$. Now, if $5$ batsmen score $32$...

One of the differences will be $0$. So the product will also become $0$.

Assume there are $3$ peoples. $a$, $b$ and $c$. If $a$ knows $b$, $b$ knows $c$ and $c$ knows $a$. Then the first condition holds but the second condition doesn't!
Assume that knowing is mutual.
