He invitesyou to share in the joy of his discovery in Problem of Figure 2this issue. One thingthat cries out to be told and sold is that mathematics is beautiful, that it iscreatively satisfying, that it can be fun. We’re very pleased to welcome submissions of original articles, new problems, and solutions to problems we’ve published. Therefore a polyhe-dron of ten pentagonal faces Fif it exists, has 25 edges E and no more than 16vertices Vsince each vertex of the polyhedron requires at least three face angles.

This is the trap that our lone incorrect solverfell into. Other referencesto this problem or extensions of it are [2,3,]. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The problem appeared there again,on p. Coxeter and Greitzer write in [14]: Finally,no less an authority than Howard Eves asks in [18, p.

Coxeter [1] gives an excellent version of Euler’sproof based on the Schlegel diagram for a polyhedron,which is what you would see if you put your cruc closeenough to one face of the polyhedron to see all the otherfaces through it.

I encountered the result first when I participated in the W.

Problem 3980 from Crux Mathematicorum

In each case the word bisectors refers to the segments from the ver-tices of the equal angles to the- opposite sides or sides produced. Leon Bankoff, unpublished as of manuscript on the history of theButterfly Problem.

Also solved by R. Each segment is then coloured with oneof n different colours. This is not to belittle the esoteric,but it has little place in the mass production of graduates that is practiced in Can-ada in the name of public education.

Y croire comme aux mathematiques. Ellis, Solution to Problem E, ibid. Zartman, Geometry, Houghton Mifflin, Boston,p. It has been known since Weierstrass that there exist functionscontinuous over the whole real axis but differentiate nowhere.


So swallow down mathematicsIn doses good and strong,And then to higher learningYou soon will pass along One of the above solvers misunderstood the problem and proved correctly arelated problem.

Problem from Crux Mathematicorum

I leave it to curious readers to determine if Eves’s claim is justified. Solutions to the problem have not yet been published in the MathematicsMagazine. Partie inferieure des mathematiques. Sastry, ProblemMathematics Magazine, Vol.

Theproblem was followed by an outline of a proof by induction.

S The answer is yes. Le sultan dit a Ali Baba: It would be more correct to say that Elichuk found four solutions but gaveonly three, for mathemaficorum writes: When a patient takes his medicineIn doses weighed just right,The doctor will encourage himTo feel the outlook’s bright.

In Lehmus found a proof of his own [2].

Not all of these solutions were correct in all respects.
