Florentin Smarandache, Ph DProfessor of MathematicsChair of Department of Math & SciencesUniversity of New Mexico200 College RoadGallup, NM 87301, USAE-mail: smarand@unm.edu
Abstract:
In this short paper we propose four conjectures in synthetic geometry that generalizeErdos-Mordell Theorem, and three conjectures in number theory that generalize Fermat Numbers.

Four Geometrical Conjectures:
a)

Let
M
be an interior point in a

P

the projectionof
M
on

.Then

ii
=

n
where
c
is a constant to be found.For n=3, it was conjectured by Erdös in 1935, and solved by Mordell in 1937 andKazarinoff in 1945. In this case
c
=
2
and the result is called the Erdös-Mordell Theorem. b)

More generally: If the projections
P
i
are considered under a given oriented angle
α
90
degrees, what happens with the above inequality?c)

In a 3-space, we make the same generalization for a convex polyhedron with nvertexes and m faces:

on all faces of the polyhedron, and c

is aconstant to be determined.[Kazarinoff conjectured that for the tetrahedron
