### So Big

One side of a triangle is divided into segments of length a and b by the inscribed circle, with radius r. Prove that the area is: abr(a+b)/ab-r^2

### 30-60-90 Polypuzzle

Re-arrange the pieces of the puzzle to form a rectangle and then to form an equilateral triangle. Calculate the angles and lengths.

### Bend

##### Stage: 5 Challenge Level:

 Consider the rhombus as illustrated where $x$ is an unknown length, $AP = AD = x$ , angle $DAP = 36$ degrees and $P$ is a point on the diagonal $AC$ such that $PB = 1$ unit. Without using a calculator, computer or tables find the exact values of 1. $\cos36^{\circ}\cos72^{\circ}$ 2. $\cos36^{\circ} - \cos72^{\circ}.$

 3. Draw these two diagrams as accurately as you can and measure the lengths $a$ and $b$. What do you notice? Can you prove it? (In each diagram there are two right angled triangles).
