geometry(iranian geometry olympiad 2017)

Unread post by abrarfiaz » Sun Jan 28, 2018 10:59 pm

4. P1,P2,...,P100 are 100 points on the plane, no three of them are collinear. For each three points, call their triangle clockwise if the increasing order of them is in clockwise order. Can the number of clockwise triangles be exactly 2017?


help me solving the problem

Okay so you're having difficulty in understanding what clockwise is. In the picture $ABC$ is clockwise and $A_1B_1C_1$ is counterclockwise.

Sketch of the solution
At first there are no such triangle.But if we start roatating the points we will get highest $\dbinom {100}{3}$triangles.And it is obviously greater than $2017$ .So,the number of such triangles can exactly be $2017$.
