An equally valuable form of support is to simply share the videos.
For the long-time viewers among you, if this sounds familiar, it’s because it’s a remake of one of the earliest videos on the channel. It’s such a wonderful problem, and the audio/pacing in earlier videos was really suboptimal, so I wanted to freshen it up a little here.
0:00 – The pattern
2:20 – Counting chords
4:03 – Counting intersection points
6:20 – Euler’s characteristic formula
11:30 – Connection with Pascal’s triangle
15:10 – Reflections
15:55 – SoME3
Correction at 8:56 – The number of the regions should of course be (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), instead of (0,1,2,3,5)
