Halp on hard geometric probability proofLet n be a positive integer. A regular polygon with 2n+1 sides is inscribed in a circle. Three of the polygon's vertices are selected at random and the triangle formed by connecting these vertices is drawn. Prove that the probability that the center of the circle lies inside the triangle is (n+1)/2(2n1). #2 20131121 00:36:49
