1. Take n labeled points $x_1, \dots, x_n$ in the plane. How do you construct a n-gon $a1, \dots, an$ such that for all i, $x_i$ is the midpoint of $[a_i, a_{i+1}]$ (with the convention $a_{n+1}=a_1$ of course). I was surprised to come across this problem in the puzzle pages of Le Monde. I think non-mathematicians would have a hard time with it.
