Extremal Principle for Counting – AMC 10

Extremal Principle for Counting – AMC 10

Extremal Principle is used in a variety of problems in Math Olympiad. The following problem from AMC 10 is a very nice example of this idea. AMC 10 Problem 4 (2019) A box contains 28 red balls, 20 green balls, 19 yellow balls, 13 blue balls, 11 white balls, and 9...

Beautiful problems from Coordinate Geometry

Beautiful problems from Coordinate Geometry

The following problems are collected from a variety of Math Olympiads and mathematics contests like I.S.I. and C.M.I. Entrances. They can be solved using elementary coordinate geometry and a bit of ingenuity. The equation \( x^2 y - 3xy + 2y = 3 \) represents:(A) a...

THIS WEEK

We will keep our focus on Number Theory.

Competency to be mastered: Number Theoretic Functions.

Prelude: Number theoretic functions are beautiful. They count number of divisors, number of co-prime residues, and a variety of other things for natural numbers. This week we will be mastering it, and try relevant AMC standard problems.
