Problem of the Week, Dec. 2024
Posted:
Dec 20, 1993 10:57 AM


The problem of the week is a regular installment here at the geometry forum. Each weekend a high school level geometry problem will be posted, and the following weekend a summary of solutions and their authors will be posted.
Once a month a harder, projectlike problem will be posted as well, and students will have a month to work on a solution. The first of these will be posted in the beginning of January. The team submitting the most complete solution will receive Geometry Forum tshirts!
Please do not post solutions to the problem of the week; instead mail your answer along with as detailed a description of your method as necessary/possible to pow@forum.swarthmore.edu (replying to this message will also work). Solutions should be received by midnight Friday so they can be combined and posted over the weekend.
Please include your name, grade, and school along with your answer.
