Abstract

Let ABC be an equilateral triangle with centre O. A line through C meets the circumcircle of triangle AOB at points D and E. Prove that the points A, O and the midpoints of segments BD, BE are concyclic. Three nonzero real numbers are given. It is given that if they are written in any order as the coefficients of a quadratic trinomial, then each of these trinomials has a real root. Does it follow that each of these trinomials has a positive root?
