Abstract
In this edition of Adventures in Problem Solving, we study
in detail a problem which first appeared in the 1987
USA Mathematics Olympiad. However, we adopt a
different strategy this time. Faced with the given problem
which looks quite challenging, we tweak it in different ways
and obtain related problems which are simpler than the original one. Solving this collection of problems turns out to
be a fun activity and demonstrates yet one more time the
importance and utility of quadratic functions and quadratic
equations.
