Show/hide problems of signs: ## Problems with sign 'C'

Deadline expired on June 15, 2006.

C. 855. We need a 60o angle, but we have no other materials but a rectangular sheet of paper. We first fold the rectangle in half along one of its bimedians. Then fold up one corner along a line through an adjacent corner, so that the vertex be on the bimedian (as shown in the Figure). Show that the acute angle of the trapezium hence obtained is 60o.

A. 402. Two players play the following game: Let n be a fixed integer greater than 1. Starting from number k=2, each player has two possible moves: either replace the number k by k+1 or by 2k. The player who is forced to write a number greater than n loses the game. Which player has a winning strategy for which n?
