Hi ganesh;

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.

Re: Oral puzzles

Hi;

Yikes! I gave the 10th term instead of the sum!

Re: Oral puzzles

I think this is a right triangle.
So, I will compute:
180-90=90
Split:45
I don't know if tan P is 45
and cot R is 45, too.
