Which of the following are divisible by 6 for all positive integers n? Mahoney and Leo Sauves both from Algonquin College. This result goes mzthematicorum at least to and probably much mathematiforum it appears in [l] just as one problem among many, without’solution or spe-cial comment.

At this point it is important to get a really good first approximation to thesolution. Neither possibility is acceptable since 13, for example, is not divisible by 3.

It will suffice to show that b-e. Comment by Leo Sauves Algonquin College. Tuauras la vie sauve en tirant une boule blanche. For fixed n, what minimal value of N will ensure the presence of at least one mono-chromatic triangle?

Proposing New Problems Online:. If N is large enough but n is fixed, this chromatic graphwill surely contain monochromatic triangles all three sides of the same colour. Kaye, Department of National Defence. In its simplest form it may be stated as follows: Although it is short and elegant, solution II cannot really be said to beelementary, since the Butterfly Property is not normally part of a high schoolgeometry curriculum. Thus my proof is valid for the triangle in the statement of theproblem.

Ross Honsberger writes that “for interesting elementary problems, this crjx is in a class by itself”. Le sultan dit a Ali Baba: The problem can be found in [l], with the following interestingsolution based on the evident fact that a fraction is irreducible if and only ifits reciprocal is irreducible.
