Anthony and Cleopatra - Mycoted

Anthony and Cleopatra


From Mycoted
Anthony and Cleopatra are lying dead on the floor of a villa in Egypt. Nearby is a broken bowl. There is no mark on either of their bodies and they were not poisoned. How did they die? Answer Anthony and Cleopatra were goldfish whose bowl was knocked over by a clumsy dog. This is one of a set of puzzles which deceive by using human names for animals. This is not a very satisfactory basis for a good puzzle but despite that, the puzzle has enduring popularity.

Death in a Field - Mycoted

Death in a Field
From Mycoted
A man is lying dead in a field. Next to him there is an unopened package. There is no other creature in the field. How did he die? Answer 1 There was a package dropped from an overflying Chopper. The packet the person in the field and he was knocked dead. Answer 2 The man had jumped from a plane but his parachute had failed to open. It is the unopened package. Answer 3 The man is highly allergic to plant growth in the field and it suffocated him. The package is just something he was carrying and has no implication to the puzzle.

Heaven - Mycoted

Heaven
From Mycoted
A man died and went to Heaven. There were thousands of other people there. They were all naked and all looked as they did at the age of 21. He looked around to see if there was anyone he recognised. He saw a couple and he knew immediately that they were Adam and Eve. How did he know? Answer He recognised Adam and Eve as the only people without navels. Because they were not born of women, they had never had umbilical cords and therefore they never had navels. This one seems perfectly logical but it can sometimes spark fierce theological arguments!

Push that Car


From Mycoted
A man pushed his car. He stopped when he reached a hotel at which point he knew he was bankrupt. Why? Answer The man pushing the car was a player in a monopoly game and his game piece was a car. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/Push_that_Car" Categories: Puzzles | Riddles

The Arm of the Postal Service - Mycoted

The Arm of the Postal Service


From Mycoted
One day a man received a parcel in the post. Carefully packed inside was a human arm. He examined it, repacked it and then sent it on to another man. The second man also carefully examined the arm before taking it to the woods and burying it. Why did they do this? Answer The three men had been stranded on a desert island. Desperate for food, they had agreed to amputate their left arms in order to eat them. They swore an oath that each would have his left arm cut off. One of them was a doctor and he cut the arms off his two companions. They were then rescued. But his oath was still binding so he later had to have his arm amputated and sent to his colleagues. This is often told with a further twist whereby a doctor pays a tramp a large sum in order to amputate the tramp's arm which the doctor then sends to another man who inspects it etc. This variation can make for a long night of questioning!

The Blind Beggar - Mycoted

The Blind Beggar


From Mycoted
A blind beggar had a brother who died. What relation was the blind beggar to the brother who died? (Brother is not the answer) Answer The blind beggar was the sister of her brother who died. This puzzle is one of a type that depends on the listener making implicit assumptions about gender - in this case that a blind beggar is a man. Similar puzzles involve surgeons who refuse to operate on their sons etc. This is probably the best of the class because it is very simply stated and yet which has the power to baffle those who have not heard it before.

The Broken Match - Mycoted

The Broken Match


From Mycoted
A man is found dead in a field. He is clutching a broken match. What happened? Answer He and a number of other passengers were making a balloon trip in a desperate attempt to flee a country. The balloon had to lose weight to stop it from crashing. He drew the short match and had to jump. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/The_Broken_Match" Categories: Puzzles | Riddles

The Coal, Carrot and Scarf


From Mycoted
Five pieces of coal, a carrot and a scarf are lying on the lawn. Nobody put them on the lawn but there is a perfectly logical reason why they should be there. What is it?

The Deadly Dish - Mycoted

The Deadly Dish


From Mycoted
Two men went into a restaurant. They both ordered the same dish from the menu. After they tasted it, one of the men went outside the restaurant and shot himself. Why? Answer The dish that the two men ordered was albatross. They had been stranded many years earlier on a desert island. When the man tasted albatross he realised that he had never tasted it before. This meant that the meat he had been given on the island was not albatross as he had been told. He correctly deduced that he had eaten the flesh of his son who had died when they first reached the island. This has something in common with No. 9 above but is in my opinion even better. It is fiendishly difficult to figure out from a standing start. A beautiful aspect of this problem is the subtle fact that he shot himself because he did not recognise the taste of the dish!

The Deadly Party - Mycoted

The Deadly Party


From Mycoted
A man went to a party and drank some of the punch. He then left early. Everyone else at the party who drank the punch subsequently died of poisoning. Why did the man not die? Hint He drank as much punch as those who drank it later and died .... The poison had been in the punch bowl all the time .... Answer The poison in the punch came from the ice cubes. When the man drank the punch the ice was fully frozen. Gradually it melted, poisoning the punch. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/The_Deadly_Party" Categories: Puzzles | Riddles

The Elder Twin - Mycoted

The Elder Twin


From Mycoted
One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How come? Answer At the time she went into labour, the mother of the twins was traveling by boat. The older twin, Terry, was born first early on March 1st. The boat then crossed the International Date line (or any time zone line) and Kerry, the younger twin, was born on February the 28th. In a leap year the younger twin celebrates her birthday two days before her older brother. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/The_Elder_Twin" Categories: Puzzles | Riddles

The Man in the Bar - Mycoted

The Man in the Bar


From Mycoted
A man walks into a bar and asks the barman for a glass of water. The barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says 'Thank you' and walks out. Answer The man had hiccups. The barman recognised this from his speech and drew the gun in order to give him a shock. It worked and cured the hiccups - so the man no longer needed the water. This puzzle has claims to be the best of the genre. It is simple in its statement, absolutely baffling and yet with a completely satisfying solution. Most people struggle very hard to solve this one yet they like the answer when they hear it or have the satisfaction of figuring it out. It is a simple puzzle to state but a difficult one to solve. It is a perfect example of a seemingly irrational and incongruous situation having a simple and complete explanation. Amazingly this classic puzzle seems to work in different cultures and languages.

The Man who Hanged Himself - Mycoted

The Man who Hanged Himself


From Mycoted
Not far from Madrid, there is a large wooden barn. The barn is completely empty except for a dead man hanging from the middle of the central rafter. The rope around his neck is ten feet long and his feet are three feet off the ground. The nearest wall is 20 feet away from the man. It is not possible to climb up the walls or along the rafters. The man hanged himself. How did he do it? Answer He climbed on a block of ice which has since melted. This one is often stated with the clue of a puddle of water, but surely this is too much assistance. It is one of several problems which depend on the change of state of water (snow or ice to water or steam). An alternative solution is that he climbed the rope, then put the end of the rope around his neck and let go. Many thanks to Bob Kew for another intriguing solution: He used a bale of hay to stand on, or jump off, which has been eaten by sheep (which have left).

The Music Stopped - Mycoted

The Music Stopped


From Mycoted
The music stopped. She died. Explain. Answer She was a circus tight-rope walker who walked blindfolded over a high wire. The band played as she crossed and when the music stopped it was the signal that she had reached the end of the walk and could safely alight. One day the conductor was taken ill and the stand-in conductor ended the piece of music too early. She stepped off to her death.

The Realisation
From Mycoted
A man was walking downstairs in a building when he suddenly realised that his wife had just died. How? Answer The man had visited his wife in hospital. She was on a life-support machine. As he was walking down the stairs all the lights went out. There had been a power cut and the emergency back-up systems had failed. He knew that she had died.

The Swimmer in the Forest - Mycoted

The Swimmer in the Forest


From Mycoted
Deep in the forest was found the body of a man who was wearing only swimming trunks, snorkel and facemask. The nearest lake was 8 miles away and the sea was 100 miles away. How had he died? This is supposedly based on a true incident. Does this make it an urban legend? Many urban legends can be restated as lateral thinking puzzles. Answer During a forest fire, a fire-fighting plane had scooped up some water from the lake to drop on the fire. The plane had accidentally picked up the unfortunate swimmer.

The man in the Elevator - Mycoted

The man in the Elevator


From Mycoted

A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. He hates walking so why does he do it? Answer The man is too short to reach the number 10 button. An alternative solution: The elevator only runs to the 7th floor. The riddle did not state that he takes the elevator from the 10th floor in the morning, just that he takes the elevator to the ground floor. He walks to the 7th floor each morning to take the elevator to the ground floor also. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/The_man_in_the_Elevator" Categories: Puzzles | Riddles

Trouble with Sons


From Mycoted
A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year. But they were not twins. How could this be so? Answer They were two of a set of triplets (or quadruplets etc.) This simple little puzzle stumps many people. They try outlandish solutions involving test-tube babies or surrogate mothers.

100 Factorial - Mycoted

100 Factorial
From Mycoted
One for the mathematicians this week, with thanks to Paul Kellet for sending it in. How many zeros are there at the end of 100! (factorial)? Answer 24 The trick here is not to calculate 100! on your calculator (which only gives you ten digits of accuracy), but to figure out how high a power of 10 goes into 100! evenly. For every trailing zero, there is a power of 10 that divides 100! evenly. In order to do that, since 10 = 2*5, we need to figure the highest powers of 2 and 5 dividing 100! and take the lesser of the two exponents. (Why?) Consider what happens when we multiply together 1*2*3*4*5*6*..., starting with the lowest numbers first. Every fifth number, starting with 5, is divisible by 5. That gives you 100/5 = 20 factors of 5 in 100!. But there are more. Every 25th number, starting with 25, has an extra factor of 5 beyond the ones already counted. That gives you 100/25 = 4 more factors of 5 in 100!. To get a third factor of 5 from a single number, it has to be a multiple of 125, and no number <= 100 is, so that is all. The answer is: [100/5] + [100/5^2] + [100/5^3] + ... = 20 + 4 + 0 + ... = 24 Here [x] means the integer part of x, or the greatest integer not exceeding x. (Why do we use this [x] instead of x?) All the terms from some point on will be zero, so this is a finite sum. Now for 2's (or any other prime number), the same analysis holds. The answer for the highest power of 2 dividing 100! is [100/2] + [100/2^2] + [100/2^3] + [100/2^4] + ... = 50 + 25 + 12 + 6 + 3 + 1 + 0 + 0 + ... = 97 The smaller of the two is 24, so the highest power of 10 dividing 100! is 10^24, so 100! ends with 24 zeroes.The same analysis works for any factorial n! and any prime p.

4 men in hats - Mycoted

4 men in hats
From Mycoted

Shown above are 4 men buried up to their necks in the ground. They cannot move so can only look forward. Between A and B is a brick wall which cannot be seen through. They all know that between them they are wearing 4 hats, 2 x black and 2 x white, but they do not know what colour they are wearing. In order to avoid being shot one of them must call out to the executioner the colour of their hat. If they get it wrong, everyone will be shot. They are not allowed to talk to each other and have 10 minutes to fathom it out. After 1 minute, one of them calls out. Question: Which one of them calls out? Question: Why is he 100% certain of the colour of his hat? This is not a trick question. There are no outside influences nor other ways of communicating. They cannot move and are buried in a straight line. So A & B can only see their respective sides of the wall, C can see B, and D can see B & C Answer C calls out that he is wearing a black hat. Why is he 100% certain of the colour of his hat ? After a while, C comes to the realization that he must answer.

4 men in hats - Mycoted

This is because D can't answer, and neither can A or B. D can see C and B, but can't determine his own hat colour. B can't see anyone and also can't determine his own hat colour. A is in the same situation as B, where he can't see anyone and can't determine his own hat colour. Since A, B, and D are silent, that leaves C. C knows he is wearing a black hat because if D saw that both B and C were wearing white hats, then he would have answered. But since D is silent, C knows that he must be wearing a black hat as he can see that B is wearing a white hat. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/4_men_in_hats" Category: Puzzles

Circles
From Mycoted

Is the inner shape rearly a circle? Answer Both 'circles' are perfect circles. Sometimes it is difficult to see the wood for the trees, and 'information' around the object or problem you are interested in can distort your view. Try covering the lines with a piece of card, or when looking at a problem try and remove some of the 'non-relevant information'. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/Circles"

Coin Balance - Mycoted

Coin Balance
From Mycoted
There are 12 boxes each containing a coin. There are a total of 11 pennies and 1 other coin in the boxes. You have a balance scale for comparing the weight of the boxes in which you can put any number of boxes on each side. You have at most, three weighings. In these three weighings you must find out which of the 12 boxes has the coin that is not a penny. Answer Balance any 4 coins (and call them A) with any other 4 coins (and call them B). Case 1. - The coins balance. You now have a stock of 8 coins (A and B) you know are ok. Weigh 3 good coins again 3 unknowns - if they balance then you have identified the coin and can use the last balance to determine if it is heavy or light. If they don't balance you know if it is heavy or light. Weigh 2 of the 3 unknown coins, and they will balance (identifying the unknown coin) or not. Case 2 - Left hand balance (A) is heavier. You have a stock of 4 known coins (C) and 8 unknown coins (A and B). Take 2 coins from group A (the left hand side) and 2 from group B (the right hand side) and balance these with 1 coin from A, 1 from B and 2 from C. If they balance, then the 4th coin from A or B is the unknown coin, and you can balance with a good coin to determine which. If A1, A2, B1, B2 are lighter than A3, B3, C1, C2 then either A1, A2 are lighter or B3 is heavier (and can be determined by a single balance) If A1, A2, B1, B2 are heavier than A3, B3, C1, C2 then either A1, A2 are heavier B3 is lighter (and can be determined by a single balance) Case 3 - Left hand balance (A) is lighter. As case 2, but swap all heaver / lighter. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/Coin_Balance" Category: Puzzles

Crossing the bridge - Mycoted

Crossing the bridge


From Mycoted
"U2" has a concert that starts in 17 minutes and they must all cross a bridge to get there. All four men begin on the same side of the bridge.You must help them across to the other side. It is night. There is one flashlight. A maximum of two people can cross at one time. Any party who crosses, either 1 or 2 people, must have the flashlight with them. The flashlight must be walked back and forth, it cannot be thrown etc. Each band member walks at a different speed. A pair must walk together at the rate of the slower man's pace: Bono:- 1 minute to cross Edge:- 2 minutes to cross Adam:- 5 minutes to cross Larry:-10 minutes to cross For example: if Bono and Larry walk across first, 10 minutes have elapsed when they get to the other side of the bridge. If Larry then returns with the flashlight, a total of 20 minutes have passed and you have failed the mission. Note: There is no trick behind this. It is the simple movement of resources in the appropriate order. There are two known answers to this problem. This is based on a question Microsoft gives to all prospective employees. Note: Microsoft expects you to answer this question in under 5 minutes! There are no tricks to this like meeting halfway or anything. Good luck. Answer One solution is that Bono & Edge cross = 2 mins (total = 2) Bono goes back = 1 mins (total = 3) Larry & Adam cross = 10 mins (total = 13) Edge goes back = 2 mins (total = 15) Bono & Edge cross = 2 mins (total = 17) A 2nd version is swapping Bono and Edge.

Drinking Glasses - Mycoted

Drinking Glasses
From Mycoted
Six drinking glasses stand in a row, with the first three full of water and the next three empty. By handling and moving only one glass at a time, how can you arrange the six glasses so that no full glass stands next to another full glass, and no empty glass stands next to another empty glass.

Manhole Covers - Mycoted

Manhole Covers
From Mycoted
Why is it better to have round manhole covers than square ones? Answer This is logical rather than lateral, but it is a good puzzle which can be solved by lateral thinking techniques. It is supposedly used by a very well-known software company as an interview question for prospective employees. Solution A square manhole cover can be turned and dropped down the diagonal of the manhole. A round manhole cannot be dropped down the manhole. So for safety and practicality, all manhole covers should be round. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/Manhole_Covers" Category: Puzzles

Matches Puzzle 8
From Mycoted

Form a bridge from the outer square to the inner square. As one match is exactly the length between squares, there is no surplus to form a bridge. 2 matches cannot be used in a straight line as there is nothing to support them where they join. What is the minimum number of additional matches required? Answer

From Mycoted
What is the product (ie. Multiplying all the numbers together) of the following series: (x-a),(x-b),(xc),.....(x-z)? (A bit harder but really nothing for maths oriented minds) Answer Zero (0). Reasoning: any number or series of numbers multiplied by zero will equal zero. The factor (x - x) = 0 See, we told you it was really nothing.

Nine Dots - Mycoted

Nine Dots
From Mycoted
Imagine the pattern of dots below drawn on a sheet of paper.

Your task is to join all nine dots using only four (or less) straight lines, without lifting your pencil from the paper and without retracing the lines. The standard Answer Many people who try to solve this problem start with the assumption that the lines must be inside the square formed by the dots. But this was never stated in the original problem!

There is always more than one right answer to many problems. Here are some other ways you could have solved the Join the Dots problem: Another Answer If we had a thick pencil, we could join the dots with just three lines.

Another Answer

http://www.mycoted.com/Nine_Dots (1 of 4) [5/24/2006 12:45:13 AM]

Nine Dots - Mycoted

Why stop at three lines? Why not take a very thick pencil and do the job with just one line???

Another Answer Even with a thinner pencil, we could still make do with three lines by folding the paper so that the dots were closer to each other.

Another Answer If we laid the paper on the ground, we could draw one very long line which encircles the Earth three times, joining one row of dots each time

Another Answer And if that sounds a bit far-fetched, we could do the same thing by rolling the paper into a cylinder.

Another Answer

http://www.mycoted.com/Nine_Dots (2 of 4) [5/24/2006 12:45:13 AM]

Nine Dots - Mycoted

Yet another solution is to fold the paper in three, so the rows of dots all line up, and fold it again and poke the pencil through!

Another Answer In mathematical terms, parallel lines are sometimes considered to "join" at infinity, so here's a solution that uses just three lines!

Another Answer Of course, we could question the assumption that we have to follow the rules! This solution uses five lines ;)

Another Answer... There are at least another 5 solutions I have come across - can you think of others. Retrieved from "http://www.mycoted.com/Nine_Dots" Category: Puzzles

Physics Problems - Mycoted

Physics Problems
From Mycoted

Down in a deep coal mine, a mile or so below the surface of the earth, is there more gravity or less gravity than there is at the entrance to the mine up at ground level? (Assume the Earth has a uniform density, and ignore any centrifugal and centripetal forces).

Answer Down a mineshaft, the gravitational effect would be less because some of the earth's mass is above you. That mass pulls you up, so it cancels the effect of some of the mass below your feet that pulls you down.

A man holds a rifle horizontally 6 feet above the ground. At the moment he fires it, another bullet is dropped from the same height, 6 feet.

Ignoring frictional effects and the curvature of the earth, which bullet hits the ground first? Answer The bullets hit the ground at the same time. The rate at which the moving bullet falls is determined by the force of gravity. This force is vertical and entirely independent of the horizontal velocity of the projectile. Its vertical descent is the same regardless of any horizontal velocity it may have.

Pour hot water into a thick drinking glass and into a thin wine glass. Which glass in more likely to crack? And why?

Answer The thick glass is most likely to crack

objects start rolling down the incline at the same instant, which one will reach the bottom first? (Assume that they all roll efficiently that is, they are perfectly formed and don't wobble--and ignore any effect of air resistance and friction.) Answer The ball will reach the bottom first. Because it has less mass on the outside, and hence less inertia.

The speed of sound in air is about 740 miles per hour. Suppose that a police car is sounding its siren and is driving towards you at 60 miles per hour. At what speed is the sound of the siren approaching you?

Answer The speed of sound coming from a police siren is the same whether or not the siren is standing still or moving.

Rupert is sailing a plastic boat in his bathtub. The boat is loaded with nuts, bolts and washers. If Rupert dumps all these items into the water. allowing his boat to float empty, will the water level in the bath rise or fall?

Answer The level will fall:the metal in the boat forces the boat to sink lower in the water, displacing water not only for the bolts, but for the air in the hull at water level. if the bolts are allowed to sink, they displace less volume than they did in the boat(try it).

It is generally accepted that matter expands with increasing temperature, and contracts with decreasing temperature. There is one notable exception. Which is it, and why has nature provided for it?

Answer Water expands below 3.98C down to 0C Otherwise ice would be heavier than water, with catastrophic consequences. Lakes and ocean's would freeze from the bottom up killing all life.

How could you make a raw egg float halfway between the surface and the bottom of a glass of water?

Answer You float a raw egg by putting salt in the water until the density of the water = that of the egg.

An ice cube is floating in a beaker of water, with the entire system at 0 Centigrade(32F). Just enough heat is applied to melt the ice cube without raising the temperature of the system. What happens to the water level in the beaker? Does it rise, fall, or stay the same?

Answer The water level neither rises nor falls: it stays the same. The reason an ice cube floats is because its volume has expanded during crystallisation.

Sheep Pens - Mycoted

Sheep Pens
From Mycoted
A Farmer has twelve sheep and decides to put each of them into a separate pen; but to make the pens he has only 12 long hurdles and 6 half length hurdles. How can he do it? Answer The farmer needs to arrange the 12 long hurdles in the shape of a hexagon made of 6 triangles, and then use the six short hurdles to divide each triangle into two.

Alan Butler spotted a solution which left a spare hurdle - can anyone improve on this?

Tim Bray spotted a solution which had 4 spare hurdles, although I suspect he might have cut the hurdles!!!!

Following my comments suggesting he may have cut some of the hurdles, Tim has come up with a couple of other solutions, which certainly don't need a saw. This one uses 11 long and 6 short, leaving one spare long hurdle

Straight Lines
From Mycoted

Are the two horrizontal lines straight or curved? Answer Both horizontal lines are straight. Sometimes it is difficult to see the wood for the trees, and 'information' around the object or problem you are interested in can distort your view. Try covering the lines with a piece of card, or when looking at a problem try and remove some of the 'non-relevant information'.

The bird and the cars - Mycoted

The bird and the cars


From Mycoted

Consider a road with two cars, at a distance of 100 kilometres, driving towards each other. The left car drives at a speed of forty kilometers per hour and the right car at a speed of sixty kilometers per hour. A bird starts at the same location as the right car and flies at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour. When it reaches the left car it turns its direction, and when it reaches the right car it turns its direction again to the opposite, etcetera. The Question: What is the total distance that the bird has traveled at the moment that the two cars have reached each other? Answer If you have written down a whole page full of mathematical formulae, then you have probably been thinking in the wrong direction for this puzzle. The two cars will meet each other after one hour, hence the bird has been flying for one hour. The bird has flown 80km when the cars meet.

There are many correct ways to answer a test question - Mycoted

There are many correct ways to answer a test question


From Mycoted
R.L. Loeffelbein, a physics teacher at Washington University in St. Louis was about to give a student a zero for the student's answer to an examination problem. The student claimed he should receive a perfect score, if the system were not so set up against the student. Instructor and student agreed to submit to an impartial arbiter, Dr. Alexander Calandra, who tells the story. The examination problem was: "Show how it is possible to determine the height of a tall building with the aid of a barometer." The student's answer was, "Take the barometer to the top of the building, attach a long rope to it, and lower the barometer to the ground. Then, bring it back up, measuring the length of the rope and barometer. The lengths of the two together is the height of the building." I, as arbiter, pointed out that the student really had a strong case for full credit since he had answered the problem completely and correctly. On the other hand, of course, full credit would contribute to a high grade for the student in his physics course, and a high grade is supposed to certify that the student knows some physics, a fact that his answer had not confirmed. So it was suggested that the student have another try at answering the problem. He was given six minutes to answer it, with the warning this time that the answer should indicate some knowledge of physics. At the end of five minutes, he had not written anything. Asked if he wished to give up, he said no, that he had several answers and he was just trying to think which would be the best. In the next minute he dashed off this answer. "Take the barometer to the top of the building. Lean over the edge of the roof, drop the barometer, timing its fall with a stopwatch. Then, using the formula S=at2, calculate the height of the building. At this point, I asked my colleague if he gave up and he conceded. The student got nearly full credit. Recalling that the student had said he had other answers, I asked him what they were. "Well," he said, "you could take the barometer out on a sunny day and measure the height of the barometer, the length of its shadow, and length of the building's shadow, then use simple proportion to determine the height of the building. And there is a very basic measurement method you might like. You take the barometer and begin to walk up the stairs. As you climb, you mark off lengths of the barometer along the wall. You then count the number of marks to get the height of the building in barometer units. "Of course, if you want a more sophisticated method, you can tie the barometer to the end of a string, swing it as a pendulum, and determine the value of 'g.' The height of the building can, in principle, be

calculated from this. "And," he concluded, "if you don't limit me to physics solutions, you can take the barometer to the basement and knock on the superintendent's door. When he answers, you say, 'Mr. Superintendent, I have here a fine barometer. If you will tell me the height of this building, I will give you this barometer.'" Finally, he admitted that he even knew the correct textbook answer -- measuring the air pressure at the bottom and top of the building and applying the appropriate formula illustrating that pressure reduces as height increases -- but that he was so fed up with college instructors trying to teach him how to think instead of showing the structure of the subject matter, that he had decided to rebel. For my part, I seriously considered changing my grade to unequivocal full credit. R.L. Loeffelbein has been a teacher and writer for 20 years. He was an assistant professor aboard the first voyage of the University of the Seven Seas.

A circle has an equilateral triangle touching it's circumference on the outside and another equilateral triangle touching its circumference on the inside, as pictured. What is the ratio of the areas of these two triangles?

Answer You don't need to do any complicated maths, if you rotate the inner triangle by 180 degrees it should become obviously guickly that the ratio is 1:4.
