PROBLEMS IN PLANE AND SOLID GEOMETRY v.1 Plane Geometry VIKTOR PRASOLOV
Abstract. This book has no equal. The priceless treasures of elementary geometry are
nowhere else exposed in so complete and at the same time transparent form. The short
solutions take barely 1.5 − 2 times more space than the formulations, while still remaining
complete, with no gaps whatsoever, although many of the problems are quite difficult. Only
this enabled the author to squeeze about 2000 problems on plane geometry in the book of
volume of ca 600 pages thus embracing practically all the known problems and theorems of
The book contains non-standard geometric problems of a level higher than that of the
problems usually offered at high school. The collection consists of two parts. It is based on
three Russian editions of Prasolov’s books on plane geometry.
The text is considerably modified for the English edition. Many new problems are added
and detailed structuring in accordance with the methods of solution is adopted.
The book is addressed to high school students, teachers of mathematics, mathematical
clubs, and college students.
