The above is problem 7 from the first round of the current Polish National Olympiad, being held in September to November this year. Another problem you posted is problem 6 from the same source. It is reasonable to assume you submit your own work for these problems in order to qualify for the next round. I therefore ask people here not to offer help on these questions until December 2009.

Re: Geometry - triangle

I have other thoughts as to why such problems are posted and posted here rather than in some other more suitable forums I've attended, but will let that pass. I'd simply add the same old suggestion: Don't do anything for anyone who shows nothing for themselves. That is, unless you are spending time in jail and need something to pass the time.

Re: Geometry - triangle
