[Answer the following questions in English or in mother tongue. Two students of the group will discuss the solutions of the problems and write answer in a khata for the group. No third person can help the group to solve the problems]

Answer all ten questions

Marks: 10X10=100

1. Find the smallest number when divided by 3 gives a remainder 1, when divided by 4 gives remainder 2, when divided by 5 gives a remainder 3 and when divided by 6 gives remainder 4.


2. If a>b show that a^ab^b data-recalc-dims=a^bb^a." />


3. Two tangents are drawn to a circle at X and Y from a point C. A line AB is drawn tangent to the circle at a point P randomly chosen on the circle’s circumference between X and Y.

If YC=XC=10 units find the perimeter of the triangle ABC.


4. ABC is an isosceles triangle. XY is drawn parallel to the base cutting the sides in X and Y. Show that B, C, X, Y lie in a circle.


5. In a triangle ABC, AB=AC. A transversal intersects AB and AC internally at K and L respectively. It intersects BC produced at M. If KL=2LM, find frac{KB}{LC}.


6. If x^5-x^3+x=a, show that x^6ge 2a-1.


7. Solve (4+sqrt{15})^x+(4-sqrt{15})^x=62.


8. Prove that n^4+4^n is a composite number for all values of n>1.


9. Prove that for every positive integer n,

1^n+8^n-3^n-6^n is divisible by 10.


10. Find the remainder when (2222)^{5555} is divided by 7.
