  3. In a triangle $ABC$, let $BC=a$, $AC=b$, $AB=c$. Let $G$ be its centroid, $R$ is its circumradius and $G_{1}$, $G_{2}$ and $G_{3}$ are the feet of the altitudes from $G$ onto $BC$, $CA$ and $AB$ respectively.

  5. Let $f$ be a funtion of natural numbers $\mathbb{N}\to\mathbb{N}$ with the following properties \[(f(2n)+f(2n+1)+1)(f(2n+1)-f(2n)-1)=3(1+2f(n))\] and $f(2n)\geq f(n)$ for all natural numbers $n$. Determine all values of $n$ such that $f(n)\leq2009$.
  6. Fixes two distinct points $A$ and $B$ on a given straight line $\Delta$ in a plane. For each point $M$ on $\Delta$, let $N$ be on $\Delta$ such that $\overrightarrow{BN}=k\overrightarrow{BA}$, where $k=\dfrac{\overline{MA}}{\overline{MB}}$. Let $(\alpha)$ be the half-circle that lies on a chosen half-plane given by $\Delta$ whose diameter is $MN$. Prove that $(\alpha)$ is always tangent to a fixed circle when $M$ moves on $\Delta$.
  7. Given a collection of real numbers $A=(a_{1},a_{2},\ldots,a_{n})$, denote by $A^{(2)}$ the 2-sums set of $A$, which is the set of all sum $a_{i}+a_{j}$ for $1\leq i<j\leq n$. Given that \[A^{(2)}=(2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6),\] determine the sum of squares of all elements of the original set $A$.
  8. Let $M$ be a point on a given line segment $AB$. Draw three semicircles whose diameters are $AM$, $BM$, $AB$ respectively, such that they are on the same side with respect to $AB$. Let $I$ be the incenter and $r$ be the inradius of the curvilinear triangle $ABM$ (whose sides are the three semicircles just constructed). Prove that when $M$ moves on the line segment $AB$, the locus of $I$ is an arc of an ellipse whose spanning chord passes through one of its foci.
