How I prove/show between every the two point of them there is always short way that the way between the other points? Last edited by shaharhada; July 27th, 2018 at 08:25 AM.

But (1) How I prove that when the distance is D, so the distance between every two points (that one is the point of the diameter) is smaller? (2) How I prove when 3 points are given the segments are follow the triangle inequality? Last edited by skipjack; July 27th, 2018 at 02:24 PM.

Thanks: 3

What the blue segment (AB) is the maximum segment on the perimeter of the circle?
What any other segment can't be bigger than AB. For example, the black segment (the AL segment)?

 July 28th, 2018, 03:12 AM #9 Senior Member   Joined: Nov 2011 Posts: 250 Thanks: 3 How I prove it by your picture? It take me a minute to look on the picture. I think you use Triangle inequality. But you prove it in another me as a I see. (1) Can it will be proven triangle quality? (2) Can you write it in tied up way the step of what you draw?
