### Re: USA(J)MO 2017 #2

Substitute $a=x+y$ and $b=x-y$ and after some simplification, we get
$a^6 = b^6(4b+1)$
So, $4b+1=(2n+1)^6$
Here we'll find a value of $b$ in terms of $n$. Then $a=(2n+1)b$, here we'll input the value of $b$ and get a value of $a$ in terms of $n$. $x=\frac{a+b}{2}$ and $y=\frac{a-b}{2}$ .

### Re: At last an ineq USAMO '17 #6

We'll show that $\sum_{cyc} \frac {a}{b^3 + 4} \ge \frac{2}{3}$ Subtracting $\frac{a}{4} + \frac{b}{4} + \frac{c}{4} + \frac{d}{4} = 1$ from both sides, we get $\sum_{cyc} (\frac{a}{b^3 + 4} - \frac{a}{4}) \ge \frac{-1}{3}$ After some simplification, we get $\sum_{cyc}\frac {3ab^3}{b^3 +4} \le 4$ B...

### At last an ineq USAMO '17 #6

Find the minimum possible value of $\frac{a}{b^3+4}+\frac{b}{c^3+4}+\frac{c}{d^3+4}+\frac{d}{a^3+4}$ given that $a$, $b$, $c$, $d$ are nonnegative real numbers such that $a+b+c+d=4$.

### Re: When everyone is busy solving USA(J)MO 2017,I am solving

Solution with angle chasing only. But seems ugly to me. Let $M$ be the midpoint of arc $BPC$. We will show that $M$ is our desired point. So, it suffices to show $\angle I_BMI_C = \angle I_BPI_C = \frac {180 - \angle A}{2} = \angle B$ or $\angle I_BMI = \angle I_CMC$ where $I$ is the incenter of ...

We know that$r = 4R \sin(\frac{A}{2})\sin(\frac{B}{2})\sin(\frac{C}{2}) $. So, it remains to show that$\sin...

Let $ABC$ be an acute triangle with circumcircle $\Gamma$. Let $A_1,B_1$ and $C_1$ be respectively the midpoints of the arcs $BAC,CBA$ and $ACB$ of $\Gamma$. Show that the inradius of triangle $A_1B_1C_1$ is not less than the inradius of triangle $ABC$.
