1.
Consider a quadrangle
ABCD
with points
P, Q, R, S, T
on
BD, AB, AD, CB, CD
respectively. Prove that if
P, Q, R
are collinear and
P, S, T
are collinear, then the lines
QS, RT, AC
are concurrent.

The following is a problem by the late Prof.
Demir who liked to present it with a
quaintly arithmetic notation which is very suggestive and delightful. A numeral
m
written
decimally will stand for a point and given such numerals
m, n
the line through them is
denoted by
m
