The measures of the 3 angles of one triangle are all different from each
other but are the same as the measures of the 3 angles of a second triangle.
The lengths of 2 sides of the first triangle are different from each other but
are the same as the lengths of 2 sides of the second triangle.
Must the length
of the remaining side of the first triangle be the same as the length of the
remaining side of the second triangle? If yes, prove it. If not, provide an
example.

Consider the sequence a_{1}=1, a_{2}=2, a_{3}=5/2, ... satisfying a_{n+1}=a_{n}+(a_{n})^{1}
for n>1. Show that a_{10000}>141.

Prove that no matter how 250 points are placed
in a disk of radius 1, there is a disk of radius
