Problem 1. Let ABC be a triangle with incentre I. A point P in the interior of the
triangle satis?es
6 PBA+
6 PCA =
6 PBC +
6 PCB.
Show that AP =AI, and that equality holds if and only if P =I.
Problem 2. LetP bearegular2006-gon. AdiagonalofP iscalled good ifitsendpoints
divide the boundary of P into two parts, each composed of an odd number of sides of P.
The sides of P are also called good.
Suppose P has been dissected into triangles by 2003 diagonals, no two of which have
a common point in the interior of P. Find the maximum number of isosceles triangles
having two good sides that could appear in such a con?guration.
Problem 3. Determine the least real number M such that the inequality

Problem 5. Let P(x) be a polynomial of degree n > 1 with integer coe?cients and let
k be a positive integer. Consider the polynomial Q(x) = P(P(...P(P(x))...)), where P
occurs k times. Prove that there are at most n integers t such that Q(t) = t.

that has b as a side and is contained in P. Show that the sum of the areas assigned to
the sides of P is at least twice the area of P.
