Spring OMO 2015
The Spring installment of the 20142015 OMO contests. NOTE: In #29 the side length of BC should be 20x^(5/2), not 10x^(5/2). The original formulation of the problem leads to a unique value of x, but for which the resulting triangle ABC does not fit the problem criteria. The new formulation fixes this issue. We will grade as correct the answer obtained under either formulation, i.e., if your team solved the original version of the #29 there is no need to redo the problem as the answer originally submitted will still be graded correct.
