KEY TO CORRECTION

8TH EMMC

EASY 1.

Answer : b = 5 and a = 6. (Mohit Hemant Gohil)

Solutions :

Clearly a > b 1 and ab + 61 = a b = (a b)(a + ab + b), thus :

61 = (a b)(a + b) + (a b 1)ab.

If a b 3, then a 4 and 61 > 3(a + b). Thus a = 4, so b = 1 and we note that these do not satisfy the

original equation. If a b = 2, then,

61 = 2(a + b) + ab

= 2((b + 2) + b) + (b + 2)b

= 5b + 10b + 8

and this equation also has no positive integer solution in b. Thus we must have a b = 1, so

61 = a + b = (b + 1) + b and hence :

b = 5 and a = 6.

EASY 2

Answer : cot 1 (Edison Valeroso)

Solutions :

Let S = 2sin 2 + 4sin 4 + 6sin 6 + 8sin 8 + + 178sin 178 + 180sin 180.

There are 90 terms and sin 180 = 0. Therefore :

S = (2sin 2 + 178sin 178) + (4sin 4 + 176sin 176) + + 90sin 90

Now, sin 2 = sin(180 2) = sin 178. Similarly,

sin 4 = sin(180 4) = sin 176 and so on. Hence,

S = 180sin 2 + 180sin 4 + 180sin 6 + + 180sin 88 + 90

= 180(sin 2 + sin 4 + sin 6 + + sin 88 + sin 90) 90

Ssin 1 = 180(sin 2sin 1 + sin 4sin 1 + + sin 88sin 1 + sin 90sin 1) 90sin 1

= 180[(cos 1 cos 3) + (cos 3 cos 5) + + (cos 89 cos 91)] 90sin 1

= 90cos 1 90cos 91 90sin 1

= 90cos 1 + 90sin 1 90sin 1

= 90cos 1

Hence, S = 90cot 1. Therefore, the average of this number is : S/90 = cot 1

EASY 3

Answer : 7 (Isaiah James Maling)

Solutions :

The digit numbers from the first 9 digits after the decimal is obviously 9 digits.The digit numbers from 10

until 99 is 90(2) = 180 digits. Since the integers are between 1 and 999 the remaining should be three digits

so :

(1983 (180 + 9)) = 1794 digits to be filled by 3 digit numbers. Dividing 1794 by 3 we get 598 with

remainder 0. Since the first 3-digit integer is 100, then the 598-th 3-digit integer should be

598 + 99 = 697.

Therefore the 1983rd digit is 7.

EASY 4

Answer : (x) = x, (x) = x (Antonio Valente Macarilay)

Solutions :

Suppose (k) = k. Then putting x = k in the original relation we get :

(k(y) + k) = (k) + ky. Hence,

k(y) + k = k + ky

(y) = y for all y.

Similarly, let (k) = k. Then putting x = k in the original relation we get :

(k(y) + k) = (k) + ky. Hence,

(k(y) + k) = k + ky

(y) = y for all y.

Thus, we can conclude that (x) = x or x for all real number x.

EASY 5

= (1 Probability that no one dies)

= (1 ())

EASY 6

EASY : Calculus Answer : d = 46 = 9.79795897 (Edison Valeroso & Philipp Grinev)

Solutions :

Actually it is difficult to derive the formula using this document. But the formula to find r is :

r = 4rr. But d = 2r , hence :

d = 4rr = 46

(Give the answer in fraction form)

AVERAGE : Functions

Find (x) for all real number x and y that satisfy : (x (y)) = ((y)) + x(y) + (x) 1

<em></em> Answer : (x) = 1 x/2 (Mohit Hemant Gohil)

Solutions :

Let c = (0) and A be the image (). If a is in A, then it is straightforward to nd (a) :

putting a = (y) and x = a, we get :

(a a) = (a) + a + (a) 1, thus,

(a) = (1 + c) a --------------------------------------------

The next step is to show that A A = . Note rst that c cannot be zero, for if it were, then putting y = 0, we

get :

(x c) = (c) + xc + (x) 1 -------------------------------------

Hence (0) = (c) = 1. A contradiction. But also shows that (x c) (x) = xc + ((c) 1). Here x is free

to vary over , so xc + ((c) 1) can take any value in . Thus given any x in , we may nd a, b A

such that x = a b. Hence (x) = (a b) = (b) + ab + (a) 1. So, using :

(x) = c b + ab a= c x. In particular, this is true for x A. Comparing with we deduce

that c = 1. So for all x we must have (x) = 1 x.

Let (x) = x + 6x + k for all real numbers x, where k is some real number. For what values of k does ((x))

have exactly 3 distinct real roots?

<em><em><em><em><em><em><em><em>

</em></em></em></em></em></em></em></em>Answer : k = (11 13)/2 = 3.69722 (Unanswered)

Solutions : (M-Cee Malicsi)

Let m = one root of (x) and 6 m = other root of (x)

So k = m( 6 m) = m 6m --------------------------------------------

Then (x) = x + 6x + k = (x m)(x m 6)

If (x) is substituted in x,

((x)) = (x + 6x + k m)(x + 6x + k + m + 6) ------------------

To obtain 3 distinct real roots in a 4th degree polynomial, one of the factors of must be a perfect square.

Lets set x + 6x + k m is a perfect square (with 1 distinct root)

By setting its discriminant to 0, we have :

k m=9

Substituting for k

m + 7m + 9 = 0

m = [7+13] and k = [11 + 13] or,

m = [7 13] and k = [11 13]

Substituting it in the 2nd factor :

we have (1st solution) x + 6x + 8 + 213 (which has no real root) and x + 6x + 8 213 (which has 2

distinct roots)

So k must be (11 13) = 3.69722

HARD : Trigonometry

Given (x) = cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos x))))))).

Assume the number k satisfies the equation k = cos k, express (k) in terms of polynomial k.

<em><strong><em><em><strong><em><strong><em> Solutions :

f(x)=cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos x))))))), so for better convinience, i will just have this notation as

f(x)=cos<8> x, meaning getting the cosine of the previous result 8 times.. :)

And By continuous chain rule..

f(x)=cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos(cos x)))))))

f'(x)=sin(cos<7> x) sin(cos<6> x) ... sin(cos<2> x) sin(cos x) sin x

And since cos k=k , no matter how many cosine operations we will do.. it will always be k..

f'(k)=sin(cos<7> k) sin(cos<6> k) ... sin(cos<2> k) sin(cos k) sin k

f'(k)=(sin k)(sin k)..(sin k) (8 factors)

f'(k)=sin^8 k

f'(k)=(1-cos^2 k)^4

f'(k)=(1-k^2)^4

Therefore, f'(k)= k 4k + 6k 4k + 1
