  3. Let D, E, F be points on the sides BC, CA, AB respectively of a triangle ABC such that BD = CE = AF and ∠BDF = ∠CED = ∠AFE. Prove that ABC is equilateral.
  4. Call a natural number n faithful, if there exist natural numbers a < b < c such that a divides b, b divides c and n = a + b + c. (i) Show that all but a finite number of natural numbers are faithful. (ii) Find the sum of all natural numbers which are not faithful.
  5. Consider two polynomials P(x)=a_nx^n+a_{n-1}x^{n-1}+......+a_1x+a_0=0 and Q(x)=b_nx^n+b_{n-1}x^{n-1}+......+b_1x+b_0=0 with integer coefficients such that a_n-b_n is a prime, a_{n-1}=b_{n-1} and a_nb_0-a_0b_n \neq 0 . Suppose there exists a rational number r such that P(r) = Q(r) = 0. Prove that r is an integer.
  6. Suppose five of the nine vertices of a regular nine-sided polygon are arbitrarily chosen. Show that one can select four among these five such that they are the vertices of a trapezium.
  7. Let ABCD be a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle \Gamma . Let E, F, G, H be the midpoints of the arcs AB, BC, CD, DA of the circle \Gamma . Suppose AC.BD = EG .FH. Prove that AC, BD, EG, FH are concurrent.
  8. Find all functions f : R \mapsto R such that f(x+y)f(x-y)=(f(x)+f(y))^2-4x^2f(y) ,  for all x, y ∈ R, where R denotes the set of all real numbers.
