Mathematical Olympiad - examples - page 3

MO tasks are not easy, even for adults. At the same time, we believe that the right solution, which is here published almost on one click will serve as the inspiration.

Do not be discouraged if you not discovered the right solution. Experiment, sketching, "play" with the problem. Sometimes it helps to look into a book and find out similar problems resolved. Sometimes help three days pause and then you found right solution.
