*Answer the following ten questions*

1. Prove that has no solution in positive integers.

(Hint: Suppose on the contrary Also use )

2. Find all non negative integers a, b, c, d, n that satisfy

(Hint: Put n=0 and use )

3. Let ABCD be convex quadrilateral. Suppose that the lines AB and CD intersect at E and the lines AD and BC intersect at F. Prove that the following statements are equivalent

(i) a circle is inscribed in ABCD

(ii) BE+BF=DE+DF

(iii) AE-AF=CE-CF

(Hint: Inscribe a circle in the quadrilateral ABCD to touch the quadrilateral at K, L, M and N.)

4. A and B are two points situated on the same side of a line XY. Find the position of a point M on the line such that the sum AM+MB is minimal.

(Hint: Suppose B´ is the reflection of B across the line XY. M is the point of intersection of AB´ and XY.)
