Online as well as Offline Classes are available

About the Course

Maths Olympiad for IOQM, RMO & INMO

We have two olympiad batches one is the advanced batch where we learn advanced topics which are taught in the IMO training camp and the other one is for the starters. We have our classroom facility where you will get all the lecture notes, class recordings, Assignments, Virtual Library, and much more. The online classes will be held online via Zoom and you will get a chance to meet the students who have actually cracked the exam and learn from them. The recordings of the classes will be posted after the class. For offline batches, you will have one offline class and one online class. We conduct one online class for the offline batch as we want you to get the exposure of the faculties who won’t be able to take the offline classes.

Next Batch Starting from 03 rd April, 2022: Mission IOQM, RMO 2023

Sample Problems

Number Theory Problems

  • Let a_1, a_2, \cdots, a_{1000} be positive integers whose sum is S. if a_n! \bigg\vert n for n = 1,2,3,...,1000, compute the maximum possible value of S.
  • Find all primes p and q such that 3p^{q-1}+1 divides 11^p+17^p
  • We say a natural number n is perfect if the sum of all the positive divisors of n is equal to 2n. For example, 6 is perfect since its positive divisors 1,2,3,6 add up to 12=2\times 6. Show that an odd perfect number has at least 3 distinct prime divisors.
    Note: It is still not known whether odd perfect numbers exist. So assume such a number is there and prove the result.
  • Find all triples (p, x, y) consisting of a prime number p and two positive integers x and y such that x^{p -1} + y and x + y^ {p -1} are both powers of p
  • Let a, m, n be positive integers. Prove that \operatorname{gcd}\left(a^{m}-1, a^{n}-1\right)=a^{\operatorname{gcd}(m, n)}-1
  • If p is an odd prime, and a, b are coprime, show that
    \quad \operatorname{gcd}\left(\frac{a^{p}+b^{p}}{a+b}, a+b\right) \in\{1, p\} .
  • Are there distinct prime numbers a, b, c which satisfy
    \quad a|b c+b+c, b| c a+c+a, c \mid a b+a+b ?
  • Show that for all prime numbers p,
    \mathbb{Q}(p)=\prod_{k=1}^{p-1} k^{2k-p-1}
    is an integer.
  • Find all pairs (a, b) of positive integers such that a^{2017}+b is a multiple of a b.
  • Let a, b, c, d be pairwise distinct positive integers such that
    \quad \frac{a}{a+b}+\frac{b}{b+c}+\frac{c}{c+d}+\frac{d}{d+a}
    is an integer. Prove that a+b+c+d is not a prime number.

Combinatorics Problems

  • The numbers 1,2, \ldots, 100 are arranged in the squares of a 10 \times 10 table in the following way: the numbers 1, \ldots, 10 are in the bottom row in increasing order, numbers 11, \ldots, 20 are in the next row in increasing order, and so on. One can choose any number and two of its neighbors in two opposite directions (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal). Then either the number is increased by 2 and its neighbors are decreased by 1, or the number is decreased by 2 and its neighbors are increased by 1. After several such operations the table again contains all the numbers 1,2, \ldots, 100 . Prove that they are in the original order.
