Re: Probability-?

To make the correct probabilistic comparison, you'd need to know child mortality rates among 1-year child group and 2-year child group. If you want to compare baby boys only, you'd need to gather data for the boys, excluding the girls. A lower age doesn't necessarily correlate with a higher survival...

Re: BDMO REGIONAL 2015

How did you find 14 number(s)? Did you rather mean 24? How can you find the sum 126 if you take one of the numbers to be 3?

Anyway, the phrase "the sum of any two among them" is ambiguous and does not seem to clarify what the question setters actually asked for.

Re: BDMO NATIONAL JUNIOR 2012/03

One of the three cases will happen each day:
Rainy morning, Clear afternoon
Clear morning, Rainy afternoon
Clear morning, Clear afternoon

Right?

Can you now assign variable(s) to the no. of days in each case and relate the variables with 11, 16 and 13 in some equations?

Re: Geometry

No, it doesn't depend on anyone's personal consideration of diagonals. Sides are not diagonals, and diagonals are not lines. These two facts don't change with our opinions. :)

Re: Geometry

The way you are counting 1. views certain side(s) as diagonal(s). For example, if A and B are adjacent vertices, then AB is a side, not a diagonal. You might argue that no pair of the four points (A, B, C and D) is adjacent, but when you generalize the counting for 2013 sides by choosing any group o...

Re: Geometry

Why will any 4 points give 3 intersecting points of diagonals? Any group of 4 points will generate 2 unique diagonals, and the 2 diagonals will intersect at 1 point.

Re: A problem of BdPhO'17

Write the decay equation and apply the "law of conservation of momentum" to find the ratio. You may wish to apply "relativistic" momentum in your equation, depending on the level for which the problem has been devised.

@ siwomcre, what is the result if you can use only the digits 0, 1 and 2 (NOT ALL of 0 – 9) in the circles?

Re: BDMO 2016 6No

Imagine there are exactly 6 (blank) circles drawn on each mobile card, and exactly one digit is printed inside each circle to make a particular card number. In how many ways can you fill the 1st circle, the 2nd circle, and so on?

Re: BdMO '16 regional junior/9

There are many symmetrical parts in the picture. You can establish relationship among the radii and several other line segments by applying symmetry. If you consider the radius of the smaller circle(s) "x" and the radius of the larger circle(s) "y", can you develop an equation between them? And then...
