Re: A Lemma?

a proof not elegant
1.
$\angle ABH_a =\angle AH_bH_c $ and
$\angle BAH_a =\angle H_bAO $ as $O$ and $H$ are isogonal conjugates
2.
definitely not elegant
let the tangent meet $AB$ and $BC$ at $E$,$F$

$\angle H_bHF=\angle EHB =\angle HCB=\angle HH_bH_c $

and gives $EF\|H_bH_c$

$d_n$ the binary representation of a number that can't be expressed with a subtraction of two $n$ bit strings having a total of $n$ $1's$ together. we will prove that for a $d_n < 2^n $ there exists such $n$ bit strings for a number $x < 2^n$ is a $n$ bit string with atmost $n$ $1's$ now for $a_0$ a...

Re: When the solution is easier than the question

True for $ n=2, n=3 $... assume its true for $k \le n$ let $S_n$ denote the sum of the squares of the products of the subsets of $ \{1,2,....,n \} $ now, from the set $\{1,2,....,k+1\}$ the element $k+1$ has each non-neighbouring elements from non-neighbouring subsets of $\{1,2,....,k-1\}$ that, $S...

Easy Chess Tournament Problem

On a chess tournament 12 players took part, and any two of them played exactly one match.Any draw gives 0.5 point, win -1 point, loss -0.It turned out after the tournament that the first three together gained three times more points then the last five. How did the match between the seventh and eight...

Re: geometry

its enough to prove that $\angle BAO=\angle BAC$ when $BD$ is a tangent to the circle...
now,if $BD$ is a tangent $\angle OBD=\angle OBA+\angle ABD=90$.
again,$\angle D=90.\angle BAD+\angle ABD=90$.
then,$\angle OBA=\angle CAB$ and $\angle BAO=\angle BAC$ as,$OB=OA$.
