## IMC 2011 Day 2 Problem 5

Let $F=A_0A_1...A_n$ be a convex polygon in the plane. Define for all $1 \leq k \leq n-1$ the operation $f_k$ which replaces $F$ with a new polygon $f_k(F)=A_0A_1..A_{k-1}A_k^\prime A_{k+1}...A_n$ where $A_k^\prime$ is the symmetric of $A_k$ with respect to the perpendicular bisector of $A_{k-1}A_{k+1}$. Prove that $(f_1\circ f_2 \circ f_3 \circ...\circ f_{n-1})^n(F)=F$.
