### Definition

A *Sperner labeling* of a triangle's triangulation is a labeling that satisfies the
following conditions:

- The vertices of the original triangle are labeled with three different letters A, B, and C.
- Vertices of the triangulation that lie on the side AB are labeled either A or B. A similar condition holds for the vertices on sides BC and AC.
- There is no restriction on labeling of the vertices of the triangulation inside the original triangle.

### Sperner's Lemma

Every Sperner's labeling contains at least one complete triangle.
