## Problems with sign 'B'

Deadline expired on May 10, 2012.

B. 4442. Ann, Bill and Cecilia play the following game. They take turns choosing an integer between 1 and 10, and adding that number to the sum of the numbers that have been said so far. (For simplicity, in each turn, the player states the sum.) The player who is first able to say 100 wins the game. Prove that the two girls, with the appropriate strategy, are able to achieve that one of them is the winner.

B. 4444. The points E and G, respectively, are obtained by rotating vertex D of a square ABCD about A and vertex B (lying opposite D) about C outwards, through the same acute angle . The intersection of lines AE and BG is F. Line GD intersects the circles GCB and BDE again at points L and M, respectively. Prove that the points A, B, F, L, M are cyclic.

B. 4450. AB and C are three distinct given points lying on the line e in this order. What is the locus of the points P for which the inscribed circle of triangle ACP touches line e at B?

B. 4451. Consider a convex n-sided polygon that has no four vertices lying on the same circle. Three vertices are selected in every possible way, and the circle passing through the three points is drawn. Such a circle is called thin if the vertices of the polygon (except the vertices of the triangle) all lie outside the circle. The circle is called fat if all vertices of the polygon lie on the closed disc bounded by the circle. Are there more thin circles or more fat circles?
