Actually, reflect on any 4 vertices. manage them in clockwise order round the five via mathematical induction you'll be able to end up that This consequence additionally follows from the matter 57g. we will additionally use the truth that and observe the footnote on p. a hundred and five. equally, now observe the footnote on p. a hundred and five and the comment on p. 113. n-gon. The diagonal becoming a member of the 1st and 3rd issues will intersect the diagonal becoming a member of the second one and fourth issues, and no different pair of diagonals becoming a member of those 4 issues will intersect in the n-gon (see fig. 50). via associating to every set of 4 vertices the purpose at which of its diagonals meet, we manage a one-to-one correspondence among the issues of intersection and the units of 4 vertices. It follows from this that the variety of issues of intersection equals the variety of methods you will opt for 4 vertices from one of the n vertices of the n-gon, that's, the variety of combos of n parts four at a time, which equals Fig. 50 forty seven. First answer. Denote through fn the variety of elements into which a convex n-gon, no 3 of whose diagonals are concurrent, is split via its diagonals. we'll derive a relation connecting fn with fn+1. think of any convex (n + l)-gon; denote certainly one of its vertices via A1, the following vertex within the clockwise path by means of A2, the subsequent one via A3i and so on. (fig. 51). The polygon A1A2 · · · An is then a convex n-gon. Draw all of its diagonals; they're going to even be diagonals of the given (n + l)-gon, A1A2 · · · AnAn+1. to procure the remainder of the diagonals of the given (n + l)-gon, we needs to sign up for the vertex An+1 to every of the n — 2 nonadjacent vertices. think about the diagonal becoming a member of An+1 to Ak (k = 2, three, four, . . . , n — 1); ok — 1 vertices lie on one facet of it (the vertices A1, A2,... , Ak_1), and n — okay vertices lie at the different part (the vertices Ak+l, Ak+2,... , An). for this reason, the diagonal An+1Ak meets (k — 1)(n — ok) of the diagonals of the (n + l)-gon. The issues of intersection divide this diagonal into (k — 1 )(n — ok) + 1 elements. consequently this diagonal raises via (k — \){n — okay) + 1 the variety of elements into which the n-gon is split. The diagonals which don't go through An+1 divide the (n + l)-gon into fn + 1 components. (fn components make up the n-gon A1A2 · · · An and the (fn + l)st half is the triangle An+1A1An). After drawing the diagonals via An+1 the variety of items is elevated by means of Fig. fifty one We therefore have yet through formulation (1) on web page 107, with n changed by way of n + 1. hence, and equally including those equations, we receive Since6 we turn out with for that reason, surroundings n = three, four, 5,.... , during this formulation, we receive: f3=l, f4 = four, f5=11, f6 = 25, f7 = 50, f8 = eighty two, . . . From this consequence it follows specifically that if no 3 diagonals of a convex polygon are concurrent, then the variety of items into which the polygon is split via its diagonals relies in simple terms at the variety of vertices and never at the form of the polygon. moment resolution. The diagonals of an n-gon divide it into smaller polygons. We denote through r3 the variety of triangles between those polygons, via r4 the variety of quadrilaterals, by way of r5 the variety of pentagons, and so forth.
