### Re: BdMO National Higher Secondary 2018/4

Lemma: If we draw $x$ lines on plane, we will get maximum $\frac{x(x-1)}{2}$ intersection points. Proof: $2$ lines needed for a intersection point. So, maximum number of intersection point is $xC2=\frac{x(x-1)}{2}$ Here $200$ intersection points. So, $\frac{m(m-1)}{2} \geq 200 \Rightarrow m > 20$. ...

### Re: Equality and square

The case of negative integers is quite trivial. Now we'll work with case $a,b > 0$ Lemma 1: $x < 2^x$ Proof: We'll prove it by induction. Base case is solved. Now assume $x<2^x \Rightarrow x+1<2^x+1 \le 2^{x+1}$. Done! Lemma 2: $b^2 < 2^{2b+1}$ Proof: We'll prove it by induction. Base case is solved...

### Re: IMO 2017 Problem 2

NO INJECTIVITY!!! Notice that, if $f(x)$ is a solution, then $-f(x)$ is also a solution. Let $P(x,y)$ denotes the assertion. $P(0,0)$ implies $f(f(0)^2)=0$ . Now if $f(0)=0$ , $P(x,0)$ implies $f(x)=0$ for all $x \in \mathbb{R}$. So, assume $f(0) \neq 0$. Claim 1: If $f(x)=0$, then $x=1$ Proof: As...

### Re: IMO 2001 Problem1

Our problem is equivalent to $OP>CP$. Lemma 1: $BP \ge R+PC$ where $R$ is the circumradius of $\triangle ABC$. Proof of lemma: $BP-PC=AB \cos \angle B - AC \cos \angle C = 2R(\sin \angle C \cos \angle B - \sin \angle B \cos \angle C ) \ge R$ because $\angle C- \angle B \ge 30$. Now we back to our p...
