 Triangle Donut (Posted on 2006-01-01)
If X is the area of any triangle-PQR and you make a hole in the center of this triangle by first joining the midpoints of each side to create smaller triangle-STU and then again joining the midpoints of triangle-STU to create the hole in the center of this triangle, it would create a donut something like this:
```          Q
/ \
/   \
/     \
S /_______\ U
/ \  A  / \
/   \/_\/   \
/     \ /     \
P /_______V_______\ R
T
```
What is the area of the triangle donut in terms of X?

There is no big donut, the statement of this problem is flawed.
