# Solution: 2012-12 Big partial sum

Let A be a finite set of complex numbers. Prove that there exists a subset B of A such that $\bigl\lvert\sum_{z\in B} z\bigr\lvert \ge \frac{ 1}{\pi}\sum_{z\in A} \lvert z\rvert.$

# Solution: 2012-11 Dividing a circle

Let f be a continuous function from [0,1] such that f([0,1]) is a circle. Prove that there exists two closed intervals $$I_1, I_2 \subseteq [0,1]$$ such that $$I_1\cap I_2$$ has at most one point, $$f(I_1)$$ and $$f(I_2)$$ are semicircles, and $$f(I_1)\cup f(I_2)$$ is a circle.

The best solution was submitted by Myeongjae Lee (이명재), 2012학번. Congratulations!

# 2012-13 functions for an inequality

Determine all nonnegative functions f(x,y) and g(x,y) such that $\left(\sum_{i=1}^n a_i b_i \right)^2 \le \left( \sum_{i=1}^n f(a_i,b_i)\right) \left(\sum_{i=1}^n g(a_i,b_i)\right) \le \left(\sum_{i=1}^n a_i^2\right) \left(\sum_{i=1}^n b_i^2\right)$ for all reals $$a_i$$, $$b_i$$ and all positive integers n.
