Geometry Level 4

Given that \(\Delta ABC\) with perimeter of 1 has side lengths which are in a nonzero arithmetic progression.

Which of the following statements is/are true?

  • A. The length of the second side is \(\frac{1}{3}\).
  • B. The common difference between consecutive sides is greater than the length of the smallest side.
  • C. The common difference cannot be equal the length of the smallest side
  • D. The length of the longest side takes at least half of the perimeter.
  • E. The lengths of the sides and the common difference need not be rational.
  • F. No triangle as described above can exist.
