Yuqin Zhang, Yonghui Fan


Packing and covering are elementary but very important in combinatorial geometry, they have great practical and theoretical significance. In this paper, we discuss a problem on packing and covering a unit equilateral triangle with smaller triangles which is originated from one of Erdős' favorite problems.
