Thinking Out Loud – EGMO 2017 Problem 1

EGMO 2017, Problem 1. Let \(ABCD\) be a convex quadrilateral with \(\widehat{DAB} = \widehat{BCD} = 90^\circ\) and \(\widehat{ABC} > \widehat{CDA}\). Let \(Q\) and \(R\) be points on segments \(BC\) and \(CD\), respectively, such that line \(QR\) intersects lines \(AB\) and \(AD\) at points \(P\) and \(S\), respectively. It is given that \(PQ = RS\). Let the midpoint of \(BD\) be \(M\) and the midpoint of \(QR\) be \(N\). Prove that the points \(M, N, A\) and \(C\) lie on a circle.

Thinking Out Loud – EGMO 2014 Problem 3

EGMO 2014, Problem 3. We denote the number of positive divisors of a positive integer \(m\) by \(d(m)\) and the number of distinct prime divisors of \(m\) by \(\omega(m)\). Let \(k\) be a positive integer. Prove that there exist infinitely many positive integers \(n\) such that \(\omega(n) = k\) and \(d(n)\) does not divide \(d(a^2+b^2)\) for any positive integers \(a, b\) satisfying \(a + b = n\).

Let the lines \(CD\) and \(BE\) meet at \(F\). Prove that the incentre \(I\) of triangle \(ABC\), the orthocentre \(H\) of triangle \(DEF\) and the midpoint \(M\) of the arc \(BAC\) of the circumcircle of triangle \(ABC\) are collinear.
