    Need to solve What is the area of P ∞

    Let P0 be an equilateral triangle of area 10. Each side of P0 is trisected, and the corners are snipped off, creating a new polygon (in fact, a hexagon) P1. What is the area of P1? Now repeat the process to P1 – i.e. trisect each side and snip off the corners – to obtain a new polygon P2...

    Proving properties of convex hexagon

    Suppose we have convex hexagon ABCDEF. All of its vertices are on the circle, while |AB| = |CD|. Lines AE and CF intersect at point G and lines BE and DF intersect at intersect at point H. Prove that lines GH AD and BC are parallel. I realised that AD and BC are parallel because ABCD is...

    Boundary conditions to solve Laplace Equation on a Hexagon

    Hello All, In order to solve a 2D Laplace Equation in x-y coordinates, we need to prescribe 4 boundary conditions (2 in x and 2 in y). For example, if the domain of interest is a 1x1 rectangle, we can specify BCs at x=0, x=1, y=0, and y=1. But, what if the domain is arbitrary, say a hexagon...

    Triangles in a Hexagon

    Consider all of the possibilities of generating a triangle with three diagonals and/or sides of a regular hexagon. In each case, find the probability that a point inside the hexagon is also inside the triangle. Explain each solution.
