A few years ago, i was asked to prove the following statements during an oral
exam (i failed in proving it ..but passed the exam!). i hope you'll understand
the statements i havent a perfect english.

1 - take a ABC triangle.
2 - divide each angle in three equal angle with 2 lines.
3 - 1 line of angle A meets one of angle B in a point M
- the second line of angle A meets one of angle C in a point N
- the second line of angle B meets the second line of angle C in a point O

Prove that MNO is an equilateral triangle (MN=NO=OM)

Was that clear enough?

In french :
Les trissectrices des angles d'un triangle ABC se coupent en des points MNO. On
considère l'intersection des trisectrices les plus proches de chaque coté du
triangle. Montrez que MNO est un triangle équilatéral.
