I guess the competition is over or the problems are from old exams....

btw, the problems listed are very common olympiad problems.....

1.Common problem, with a little long solution, got posed on Nick's mathematical puzzle number:98. I am posting the link:

Nick's Mathematical Puzzles: Solution 98

2. we have to make the given expression a square number:

[taking ]

=(#now we complete the squares)

for the expression to be a perfect square, , which happens when .as k is integer, we take 1

so , hence k can only be

3.This problem is both tricky and famous(& i'm giving the most well known solution):

consider and we know , hence

now we have to use the trigonometric version of ceva's theorem:

=>

=>

=> [#using product-sum formula]

=>

=>

so as , we can write or

hence ,therefore triangle ABC is isosceles.
