"Ken's Theory"

Theory abstract : For any 5sided shape, any one of its 5 angles will be more than 100 degrees, & at the maximum, there will be only 3 angles more than 100 degrees. Explanation : Any 5sided shape can be divided into 3 triangles, & all the angles of each triangle will always add up to 180 degrees. Thus, if you take 180 degrees X 3 for the three triangles, you will get 540 degrees. Whereas, suppose all 5 angles are the largest, you will only get 100 X 5 = 500. But, it'should be 540 degrees. Thus, the remaining 40 degrees must go to 1, 2 or 3 of the angles. But in some cases, angles can be more than 140 degrees, because some of its angles are much less than 100 degrees.

i'm Jim, from the University of Essex, i find your theory interesting, fascinating. I have stress tested it thoroughly, it does work & holds out well. Ran it thru our computer simulation programs, your theory is yet unbroken.

I buy the proof that any fivesided polygon must have some angle of measure larger than 100 degrees. However, I think the part about only three angles can be larger than 100 degrees at most is false. Consider a regular pentagon with all sides and all angles equal: each of its angles measures 540 / 5 = 108 degrees. Now, it is not possible for more than three angles to be greater than 540 / 3 = 180 degrees. Michael

Yes, the first part of your theory is right. On there being only 3 angles being more than 100 degrees, this will not apply to a pentagon, where all 5 sides are of equal length. Arthur Burns New York

LAST EDITED ON Jul1903 AT 02:40 AM (EST) It is a pitty that you did not go on with your research. Modern theory of the chicken motion is fascinating. It is based on the following 2 axioms:1. The chicken goes where the beak points. 2. The chicken looks after the passing cars. Some rather unexpected conclusions can be deduced from these principles. Hint: You also have to assume that the chicken keeps moving. This directly follows from the marxist philosophy, which states that motion is the basic property of matter. Therefore, motion is the basic property of the chicken as a special case.
