You are only given the three midpoints of the sides of a triangle. How can you construct the original triangle?
In this problem we are faced with an apparently easy area problem, but it has gone horribly wrong! What happened?
The diagram illustrates the formula: 1 + 3 + 5 + ... + (2n - 1) = n² Use the diagram to show that any odd number is the difference of two squares.
Investigate the sequences obtained by starting with any positive 2 digit number (10a+b) and repeatedly using the rule 10a+b maps to 10b-a to get the next number in the sequence.
Some relationships are transitive, such as `if A>B and B>C then it follows that A>C', but some are not. In a voting system, if A beats B and B beats C should we expect A to beat C?
Can you make sense of these logical contortions?
Is it true that a large integer m can be taken such that: 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + ... +1/m > 100 ?
