IITJEE Foundation Math and PRMO (preRMO) practice: another random collection of questions

Problem 1: Find the value of $\frac{x+2a}{2b--x} + \frac{x-2a}{2a+x} + \frac{4ab}{x^{2}-4b^{2}}$ when $x=\frac{ab}{a+b}$

Problem 2: Reduce the following fraction to its lowest terms:

$(\frac{1}{x} + \frac{1}{y} + \frac{1}{z}) \div (\frac{x+y+z}{x^{2}+y^{2}+z^{2}-xy-yz-zx} - \frac{1}{x+y+z})+1$

Problem 3: Simplify: $\sqrt[4]{97-56\sqrt{3}}$

Problem 4: If $a+b+c+d=2s$, prove that $4(ab+cd)^{2}-(a^{2}+b^{2}-c^{2}-d^{2})^{2}=16(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)(s-d)$

Problem 5: If a, b, c are in HP, show that $(\frac{3}{a} + \frac{3}{b} - \frac{2}{c})(\frac{3}{c} + \frac{3}{b} - \frac{2}{a})+\frac{9}{b^{2}}=\frac{25}{ac}$.

May u discover the joy of Math! 🙂 🙂 🙂
