- A function f(n) is defined on the set of positive integers is said to be multiplicative if f(mn)=f(m)f(n) whenever m and n have no common factors greater than 1. Are the following functions multiplicative? Justify your answer.
- where k is the number of distinct primes which divide n.
- …., 1 otherwise

- Suppose that to every point of the plane a colour, either red or blue, is associated.
- Show that if there is no equilateral triangle with all vertices of the same colour then there must exist three points A,B and C of the same colour such that B is the midpoint of AC.
- Show that there must be an equilateral triangle with all vertices of the same colour.

- Let ABC be a triangle. Take n point lying on the side AB (different from A and B) and connect all of them by straight lines to the vertex C. Similarly, take n points on the side AC and connect them to B. Into how many regions is the triangle ABC partitioned by these lines? Further, take n points on the side BC also and join them with A. Assume that no three straight lines meet at a point other than A,B and C. Into how many regions is the triangle ABC partitioned now?
