Anyone see any holes in this proof?

Question:

>25 points are chosen inside a regular hexagon of side length 10 furlongs.

>Prove that some number of them are at most 5 furlongs apart, and state the number.

cited proof: http://arxiv.org/abs/1009.4322

>>

>>7796510

>furlongs

P good bait op

>>

>>7796515

it was just a quirk of the question. I copied it verbatim.

obviously the units dont matter

>>

bump please

>>

yep its an old one. it leaves the less space between circles and the perfect arrangement for circle arrays

The one niggling issue i am having is with an assumption of mine - that the points lie on the edge of the hexagon.

Its kinda obvious that that is the best way to fit the maximum number of points in the hexagon, but I cant figure out how to prove it.

easy. just tell them to either disprove it or fuck off :^)
