equilateral triangle prob
Posted:

given 3 arbitrary parallel lines, how can i construct an equilateral triangle with euclidean tools? ...with one vertex on each line.
I remember this problem from an entrance exam for Dr. Ross's summer math camp at Ohio State. Is it still on that exam? If so, I think it would be appropriate to give hints but not a full solution to this problem.
