phil1882 added an answer to a question Triangle with a given perimeter
no clue on this one, you can divide a single line segment to any measurement, but showing any point m to construct a triangle of any parameter? much much harder i think.

this solution doesn't work, as tim and fred both end in 2.
the numbers 15 should appear once in each digit place between men, as hint #2 tries to explain.

numbers by the bookFive men, one of which is Greg each selected 5 unique 3 digit numbers from a hat. given the clues, can you tell what the numbers are and the men who selected them?
1. Each digit for the number chosen by each man is unique. (that is, if the number begins with 1, 1 wont appear anywhere else in the number.)
2. Each digit for each place between men is unique. (that is, if a number begins with 1, no other number begins with 1.)
3. Only the digits 15 are used.
4. Andy has the smallest number, and it's evenly divisible by 5.
5. Both Bob's and Fred's numbers are evenly divisible by 3.
6. Bob's number is smaller than Fred's.
7. Tim's number is evenly divisible by 2, and a prime.
8. Tim's number is greater than Bob's.
9. Fred's middle most number is prime.
10. Bob's middle and last number are odd.
11. the middle digit of Tim's number is twice as big as Andy's.
good luck and enjoy!

i was thinking it would be false if both were born on he same day, but even here it would be true, because they can't be born at exactly the same time.

phil1882 added an answer to a question Relatively prime
if you really wanna see something bizarre, the Riemann zeta function tells us that the sequence 1 +2 +3 +4 +5 .... = 1/12.

the equation
1/1^2 +1/2^2 +1/3^2 ... is well known to be pi^2/6, and is equivalent to 1/(11/2^2) *1/(11/3^2) *1/(11/5^2) ...
