### Number Theory Challenges, #1

1. Find the sum of all the integers between 50 and 350 whose final digit is 1.
1a. How much greater is this than the sum of all the integers from 1 to 50?
2. Find the complete set of real solutions for the equation $4y^2+4xy+2x+8$ where y is real.
3. How many primes can be represented as ? Say NONE if no primes can be represented, say ALL if every prime can be represented.
4. Find all solutions (x,y) where x and y are integers, to the equation$x^2+xy+y^2+x+y=1$
5. For what values of a does $x^2+ax+1 = 0$
and $ax^2+x+1 = 0$ have at least one root in common?
6. Find the last digit of (2^1232)*(2^5+3^7)?
7.Find the coefficient of p if the difference between the roots in this equation is 9.

8. Bobbym and his neighbor were solving equations late in the night and they were solving two quadratics,
(1)$bx^2+ax+1 = 0$ and
(2)$ax^2+bx+1 = 0$.
His neighbor switched up bobbym's equation and got (2). For what values of a and b are at least one of the roots the same?

May bobbym have a wonderful time in the pearly gates of heaven.
He will be sorely missed.

Hi;

What is that after #8?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

The equation described in 2 equals 0,
In 8, you got equation (1) and your neighbor got (2). For what values of a and b(a and b are distinct), for at least 1 of the solutions are the same?

For (9), what is the range of

Something fishy. Why the common factor 2 exists?

I have three quotes in case you are thinking of revealing anything you think you know about me:

Cobbie Bean, Cobbie Bean, never tell what you have seen.

Omerta - The code of silence.

He who is deaf, blind, and silent will live a hundred years in peace.
