where n is a given positive integer.
Day 2
Problem 4
In the interior of triangle a point P is given. Let be the intersections of with the opposing edges of triangle . Prove that among the ratios there exists one not larger than 2 and one not smaller than 2.
Problem 5
Construct a triangle ABC if the following elements are given: , and where M is the midpoint of BC. Prove that the construction has a solution if and only if
In what case does equality hold?
Problem 6
Consider a plane and three non-collinear points on the same side of ; suppose the plane determined by these three points is not parallel to . In plane take three arbitrary points . Let be the midpoints of segments ; Let be the centroid of the triangle . (We will not consider positions of the points such that the points do not form a triangle.) What is the locus of point as range independently over the plane ?
