Official Solution:


Which of the following can be the perimeter of a triangle inscribed in a circle with a radius of 1?

I. 0.001

II. 0.010

III. 0.100


A. I only
B. III only
C. II and III only
D. I, II, and III
E. not I, II, or III

The perimeter of a triangle inscribed in a circle can be infinitely small. We can place all three vertices on a tiny arc of less than 0.001. The circle consists of infinite number of points. The circle isn't a straight line, so the three vertices will make a triangle.

Answer: D

Inscribed in a circle means that all the vertices of triangle must be on the circumference of the circle or some of them can be just inside?

Answer: D


Hi,

Why should be place all three vertices on a tiny arc of less than 0.001? I mean how can we find 0.001?

The solution implies that we can choose three points on a circle so that the area of a triangle will be as small as we want it to be. It does not matter how we can find the area then, important thing is that the minimum are of an inscribed triangle is not limited.

Hope it's clear.

Damn it. It makes sense after reading the answer. I assumed third point of triangle will be on opposite side (like outward not inward)

Dear Bunuel, I'm still hard to understand this explanation. Would you mind to share the picture or maybe link related to the inscribed triangle?

Thank you very much.
