Putnam Exam Seminar Assignment 8 Fall 2010 Due November 1 Exercise 1. Find all pairs of real numbers ( x,y ) satisfying the system of equations 1 x + 1 2 y = ( x 2 + 3 y 2 )(3 x 2 + y 2 ) 1 x - 1 2 y = 2( y 4 - x 4 ) . [Putnam Exam, 2001, B-2] Exercise 2. Assume that x , y and z are all positive real numbers that satisfy the system of equations x + y + xy = 8 y + z + yz = 15 z + x + xz = 35 . Determine the value of x + y + z + xyz . Exercise 3. Find all quadruples of real numbers ( x 1 ,x 2 ,x 3 ,x 4 ) such that the sum of any one and the product of the other three is equal to 2. Exercise 4. Prove that there are only a ﬁnite number of possibilities for the ordered triple
