**I'm with Mephisto... where is point F in a pentagon, irregular or not?**

Both of you -you and Mephisto are right....

Apologies for the inadvertant error....

The puzzle should actually read as follows:-

" ABCDE is an irregular convex pentagon such that each of the five triangles ABC, BCD, CDE, DEA and EAB have equal area say 'x'.

Find the area of the pentagon in terms of 'x'."

However, in spite of the inadvertant error, the spirit and the substance of the puzzle was quite clear...

I stand corrected...Plz solve the puzzle now...
