comment 'Obvious' theorems that are actually false
In case you don't believe it: jsfiddle.net/GeB8V or console this function pickPos() { return Math.floor(Math.random() * Number.MAX_SAFE_INTEGER); }; function play() { var y = pickPos(); x = pickPos(); z = pickPos(); return ((x < y && x < z) || (x > y && x > z)) ? true : false }; counter = {wins: 0, losses:0}; i = 100000; while(i--) { counter[play() ? 'wins' : 'losses']++ }; counter

I don't know how to do any of that. Is there a wikipedia page on annular sector? Also what's the f function?

comment Best way to split up a circle into subsections
@AndréNicolas Can you explain how you got to that number. Also What is the radius of the inner circle and how many segments does the inner circle need?
