CreeperA creeper plant is climbing up and around a cylindrical tree trunk in a helical manner. The tree trunk has a height of 480 inches and a circumference of 32 inches. If the creeper covers a vertical distance of 60 inches in one complete twist around the tree trunk, what is the total length of the creeper? Character is who you are when no one is looking. #2 20050707 20:34:16

Re: CreeperFirst, we'd have to convert the trunk into two dimensions..... Character is who you are when no one is looking. #6 20050709 00:11:19
Re: CreeperGanesh U r fantastic. u r jokes and problems are good. keep going. thanks #7 20050709 01:17:37
Re: CreeperHis website is good! What was it again? I forgot........... School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #8 20050709 02:43:39
Re: CreeperThat's what I got, before I left it for others to solve. I wasn't sure if you were allowed to flatten it. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #9 20050709 07:42:34
Re: CreeperI had forgotten that spiraltriangle trick! I was trying to think in 3D and got well confoosed. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #10 20050709 21:53:14
