3. Which is greater and by how much, the diagonal of a square or the perpendicular of an equilateral triangle equal in area to the square?

4. A circle is inscribed in an equilateral triangle, and a second circle to touch the first and two sides of the triangle, and a third circle to touch the second circle and the same two sides, and so on ad inf. Find the sum of the areas of all the circles.

5. The attraction at the surface of a planet varies directly as the mass and inversely as the square of the radius of the planet.
