For a triangle with integer sides a,b,c
(none over 2000) evaluate the triplet of its medians ma
Let those three become sides of a new triangle i.e. (a,b,c) =(ma
, mc )
It is up to you to find a triplet (a,b,c) such that the above procedure can be executed a maximal number of times, creating sets of “medians“ with integer values only.
The answer should include: (a,b,c) and all interim sets of medians.
Rem: Can be solved analytically.
(In reply to re: Solution
As I understood the problem, Harry. Ady was inferring the points intersected by the medians with the sides of the triangle (the medial points) would be the vertices of the inner triangle.
