Principle of the extreme element. (English)
Math. Gaz. 83, No. 496, 2-9 (1999).
The principle of the extreme is illustrated implicitly by showing how it helps to solve some non-standard mathematical problems. After a few examples from geometry using the largest angle in a figure, ten non-trivial problems are solved and several for the reader to solve.
