Hosted by The Math Forum## Problem of the Week 1136## A Square Angle
Let ABCD be a unit square with A at the lower left, B at lower right, C at upper right, and D at upper left. From A and B, draw lines into the square making 15° angles with the base AB, and let E be their intersection point.
What is the measure of ∠CED? Of course, an exact proof is wanted, not a numerical approximation based on trigonometry, since the latter would not be a rigorous proof. © Copyright 2010 Stan Wagon. Reproduced with permission. |
