Let P ( x ) be a polynomial of degree n > 1 with integer coeﬃcients 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 . Problem 6. Assign to each side b of a convex polygon P the maximum area of a triangle 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 . Time allowed: 4 hours 30 minutes Each problem is worth 7 points language: English day: 2...
