**Problem 1**

Let ABCD be a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle. Suppose AB = and AB subtends 1350 at the center of the circle. Find the maximum possible area of ABCD.

**Problem 2**

Let and be two sets of prime numbers such that and . Suppose and . Prove that 30 divides .

**Problem 3**

Define a sequence n∈N of functions as , , for . Prove that each is a polynomial with integer coefficients.

**Problem 4**

Let ABC be a triangle. An interior point P of ABC is said to be good if we can find exactly 27 rays emanating from P intersecting the sides of the triangle ABC such that the triangle is divided by these rays into 27 smaller triangles of equal area. Determine the number of good points for a given triangle ABC.

**Problem 5**

Let ABC be an acute angled triangle. Let D, E, F be points on BC, CA, AB such that AD is the median, BE is the internal bisector and CF is the altitude. Suppose that angle FDE = angle C and angle DEF = angle A and angle EFD = angle B. Show that ABC is equilateral.

**Problem 6**

Let be a function satisfying , and

- ,
- for all x , simultaneously.
- Find the set of all possible values of the function f.
- If and , find the set of all integers n such that .
