Then I think you are done with those. Oh wait, the two triangle one had an additional question that I asked a couple of posts back.

Hmmm. Yes, that might work. I wonder where we could find a ready made geogebra demonstration. One already done for us. What a great thing that would be.

Wait, why would we need a Geogebra demo anyway?

Btw, I cannot figure out what's wrong with my solution to http://projecteuler.net/problem=8. I am getting 78246.
