Let a divisor $d$ of a positive integer $n$ be called a perfect divisor if $\gcd (d,\frac{n}{d})=1$. Let $m$ be the sum of all perfect divisors of $2014!$. Find $m\,(\text{mod}\, 2014)$.

2014 = 2 x 19 x 53 Since all exponential of each prime factor is 1, every proper divisors of 2014 (i.e. not 2014 and 1) is a perfect divisor. So m = 2 + 1007 + 19 + 106 + 53 + 38 = 1225 = 1225 mod 2014

$$ \prod_{p\le2014}p^e+1 $$ where the product is over primes and the exponent e is the padic valuation of 2014: $e=\left\lfloor\frac{2014}{p}\right\rfloor+\left\l floor\frac{2014}{p^2}\right\rfloor+\ldots$. 1861 is prime and divides 2014! exactly once (since 2014/2 < 1861 <= 2014) and so the product is divisible by 1862 = 2 * 7^2 * 19. Similarly, since 1907 is prime the product is divisible by 1908 = 2^2 * 3^2 * 53. Hence the product is divisible, at least, by 2 * 19 * 53 = 2014 and so the answer is 0 mod 2014. For those interested in the nonmodular answer in its 5782digit glory, here's a GP script: Code: val(n,p)=my(t);while(n\=p,t+=n);t t=1;forprime(p=2,2014,t*=p^val(2014,p)+1);t

Somehow I read that "!" as English punctuation! I thought it was a bit easy (although I woulld in the cold light of day add 1 and 2014 to my answer).

Since you want unitary divisors only, the basic units are not the primes but the prime powers maximally dividing the number. So let N = q1 q2 ... qk where each qi is a prime power and no primes are reused. Then for each qi it can be included, or not, in a unitary divisor. Thus the number of unitary divisors is 2^k. To get their sum you could examine each of these 2^k numbers, but you can do better by noticing that the unitary divisors are either divisible by qk, or not, and you can transform one group into the other by multiplying/dividing by qk itself. So if you knew the sum of the divisors of N/qk you can multiply it by 1 + qk to get the sum of the divisors of N. Induction gives you what you;d expect: you can just multiply qi + 1 for all prime powers qi  N (that is, all p^e  N where p^(e+1) does not divide N). Hmm. Draw a regular hexagon and connect all pairs of points. How many triangles are there in total?

Does this include joining two triangles to make another? Or indeed, joining shapes of any type to make triangles?

Any triangle as long as all three sides are sides or diagonals of the regular hexagon.

But triangles with sides that are segments of a diagonal are not included?
