Euclidean geometry problemsThis thread started on puzzles and games, but bobbym said it was transferred here. Cannot find it so, in case you missed the first problem, I'll repeat it now.

Re: Euclidean geometry problemsHi bob bundy; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100712 17:52:55
Re: Euclidean geometry problemsOh ****!!!. That was supposed to be the start diagra, not the solution diagram. And, no matter how many times I edit it out, it's just stuck there now. Sorry.

Re: Euclidean geometry problemsI thought I had a solution but then it evaporated when I realised I'd assumed something that looked right but minus any proof! Code:You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #6 20100715 02:03:32
Re: Euclidean geometry problemsHi bob bundy;
I am looking at a short proof right now, but I do not undertsand it yet. As soon as I can at least follow it, I will post it for you. Please be patient, If I can't get it I will post it anyway because you might follow it and then you can explain it to me. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Euclidean geometry problemsIt would really make my day to explain to you so go ahead and make me happy! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #8 20100715 06:10:55
Re: Euclidean geometry problemsWorking to get the picture and post over here! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Euclidean geometry problemsDraw isosceles triangle AEQ with AQE = 20°. Since. AE = BC, the latter is equal to ΔABC. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Euclidean geometry problemsCan we assume that if x>1 that ln(x) >x 1 (??) #14 20121008 21:51:54
