Geometry Warmups

Mathematics is filled with shapes that are kaleidoscopic in variety. Wielded since ancient times, the power of geometry helps us examine and measure these shapes.

Geometry Warmups: Level 4 Challenges


Let \(ABC\) an equilateral triangle, \(P\) a point inside the triangle such as \(AP=5, BP=12\) and \(CP=13\). Find the area of \(\triangle ABC\).


\[\frac{241}{2-\cot^{2} (9^{\circ})}+\frac{241}{2-\cot^{2} (27^{\circ})}+\frac{241}{2-\cot^{2} (45^{\circ})}\\ +\frac{241}{2-\cot^{2} (63^{\circ})}+\frac{241}{2-\cot^{2} (81^{\circ})} . \]

\[ (x_1 - x_2)^2 + \left ( \sqrt{2-x_1 ^2} - \frac {9}{x_2} \right )^2 \]

What is the minimum value of the above expression where \(x_1 \in (0, \sqrt{2}) \) and \( x_2 \in R^+ \)

A person is bored waiting in line. He draws 1000 congruent circles in the plane, all passing through a fixed point, P. What is the largest number of regions into which these circles can split the plane? (Include the region outside the circles in your count)
