# Geometry Help Needed

I'm really bad in Geometry. Can anyone recommend good books about geometry? Or any tips to be good in it?

To learn all the basics of geometry, you should read Euclid's Elements. It is quite insightful. · 2 years, 8 months ago

u should consider this book: challenging problems in geometry...(ask your friend to photostat) · 2 years, 8 months ago

I got it when i made it to the maths olympiad top 60 training camp (so shameful to said it lol) · 2 years, 8 months ago

Ok thanks...so cool you can get into Malaysia's top 60. Is the training camp students selected from omk or another selection test? For me, omk is not easy...hard! :'( Here, can i ask an omk question (2011)?Question: Prove that any triangle can be cut into six similar triangles.(Your proof must be valid for all types of triangle but not a specific type only.) Thanks:-) · 2 years, 8 months ago

Draw all three medians from each vertex to the opposite side. This is because if the triangle split by medians then the two parts will have the same area since their base length and height is the same. (Maybe more things are needed to add in....actually I was stumped when i was in form 1...) · 2 years, 8 months ago

How do we know that the corresponding angles of triangles after being cut by median is the same? Because they ought to be similar...

What do you mean by"More things" need to add in? I'm curious. ..

I'm in form 1...stumped too...:-P juz kidding...Btw, thanks. · 2 years, 8 months ago

'Geometry Revisited' is one of the best books on geometry. · 2 years, 8 months ago
