A 1 m by 1 m square box in the xy-plane 2001-12-15 From Murray:Inside a 1 m by 1 m square box in the xy-plane, there are finitely many line segments, whose lengths sum to exactly 10 m. Show that there exists a straight line in the plane which crosses at least six of these line segments. (Hint: first, show that there exists a straight line in the plane which crosses at least five of these line segments.) Answered by Claude Tardif.
