Place an identical but scaled down map over the big original.[br]Is there a point where the same place on both maps coincide?[br]You can move and rotate (and scale) the small map...[br]Can you position the small map so that the answer to the above question would be affirmative?[br]Could there be more than one such point? Why ... ?[br]Choosing any positioning of the small map, is there a point where the same place on both maps coincide ?[br]Can you prove or disprove it?[br]Explore the applet by appropriate clicks... and think ...[br]Can you now answer the above questions?
