(in North America and South America)

Thursday, April 16, 2015

(outside of North America and South America)

Time:

21 2 hours

c 2015 University of Waterloo Do not open this booklet until instructed to do so.

Number of questions: 10

Each question is worth 10 marks

Calculators are allowed, with the following restriction: you may not use a device that has internet access, that can communicate with other devices, or that contains previously stored information. For example, you may not use a smartphone or a tablet. Parts of each question can be of two types: 1. SHORT ANSWER parts indicated by ? worth 3 marks each ? full marks given for a correct answer which is placed in the box ? part marks awarded only if relevant work is shown in the space provided 2. FULL SOLUTION parts indicated by ? ? ? ? worth the remainder of the 10 marks for the question must be written in the appropriate location in the answer booklet marks awarded for completeness, clarity, and style of presentation a correct solution poorly presented will not earn full marks

WRITE ALL ANSWERS IN THE ANSWER BOOKLET PROVIDED. ? Extra paper for your ?nished solutions supplied by your supervising teacher must be inserted into your answer booklet. Write your name, school name, and question number on any inserted pages. √ ? Express calculations and answers as exact numbers such as π + 1 and 2, etc., rather than as 4.14 . . . or 1.41 . . ., except where otherwise indicated. Do not discuss the problems or solutions from this contest online for the next 48 hours. The name, grade, school and location, and score range of some top-scoring students will be published on our website, cemc.uwaterloo.ca. In addition, the name, grade, school and location, and score of some top-scoring students may be shared with other mathematical organizations for other recognition opportunities.

NOTE: 1. Please read the instructions on the front cover of this booklet. 2. Write all answers in the answer booklet provided. 3. For questions marked , place your answer in the appropriate box in the answer booklet and show your work. For questions marked , provide a well-organized solution in the answer booklet. Use mathematical statements and words to explain all of the steps of your solution. Work out some details in rough on a separate piece of paper before writing your ?nished solution. Diagrams are not drawn to scale. They are intended as aids only. While calculators may be used for numerical calculations, other mathematical steps must be shown and justi?ed in your written solutions and speci?c marks may be allocated for these steps. For example, while your calculator might be able to ?nd the x-intercepts of the graph of an equation like y = x3 ? x, you should show the algebraic steps that you used to ?nd these numbers, rather than simply writing these numbers down.

(b) Ellie has two lists, each consisting of 6 consecutive positive integers. The smallest integer in the ?rst list is a, the smallest integer in the second list is b, and a < b. She makes a third list which consists of the 36 integers formed by multiplying each number from the ?rst list with each number from the second list. (This third list may include some repeated numbers.) If ? the integer 49 appears in the third list, ? there is no number in the third list that is a multiple of 64, and ? there is at least one number in the third list that is larger than 75, determine all possible pairs (a, b).

(a) A circular disc is divided into 36 sectors. A number is written in each sector. When three consecutive sectors contain a, b and c in that order, then b = ac. If the number 2 is placed in one of the sectors and the number 3 is placed in one of the adjacent sectors, as shown, what is the sum of the 36 numbers on the disc?

(b) The numbers a1 , a2 , a3 , . . . form an arithmetic sequence with a1 = a2 . The three numbers a1 , a2 , a6 form a geometric sequence in that order. Determine all possible positive integers k for which the three numbers a1 , a4 , ak also form a geometric sequence in that order. (An arithmetic sequence is a sequence in which each term after the ?rst is obtained from the previous term by adding a constant. For example, 3, 5, 7, 9 are the ?rst four terms of an arithmetic sequence. A geometric sequence is a sequence in which each term after the ?rst is obtained from the previous term by multiplying it by a non-zero constant. For example, 3, 6, 12 is a geometric sequence with three terms.) 8. x2 ? 5 intersects k the circle with equation x2 + y 2 = 25 at exactly three distinct points A, B and C .

For each positive integer n ≥ 1, let Cn be the set containing the n smallest positive integers; that is, Cn = {1, 2, . . . , n ? 1, n}. For example, C4 = {1, 2, 3, 4}. We call a set, F , of subsets of Cn a Furoni family of Cn if no element of F is a subset of another element of F . (a) Consider A = {{1, 2}, {1, 3}, {1, 4}}. Note that A is a Furoni family of C4 . Determine the two Furoni families of C4 that contain all of the elements of A and to which no other subsets of C4 can be added to form a new (larger) Furoni family. (b) Suppose that n is a positive integer and that F is a Furoni family of Cn . For each non-negative integer k , de?ne ak to be the number of elements of F that contain exactly k integers. Prove that a1 a2 a0 + + + ··· + n n n 0 1 2 an?1 n n?1 + an ≤1 n n

(The sum on the left side includes n + 1 terms.) (Note: If n is a positive integer and k is an integer with 0 ≤ k ≤ n, then n n! = is the number of subsets of Cn that contain exactly k integers, k k !(n ? k )! where 0! = 1 and, if m is a positive integer, m! represents the product of the integers from 1 to m, inclusive.) (c) For each positive integer n, determine, with proof, the number of elements in the largest Furoni family of Cn (that is, the number of elements in the Furoni family that contains the maximum possible number of subsets of Cn ).
