Re: Bafflers?

Hmmmm. If you can not see the streak of brilliance that runs down that guys back then how can I show you?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Bafflers?

New Problem:

In the drawing below each circle has a radius of 1 / 2 the size of the radius of the circle on its left. The first green circle has a radius 1 / 2 the size of the radius of the biggest yellow circle which contains them all. The purple circle has a radius of 1 / 2 the size of the green circle. The red one, 1 / 2 the size of the radius of the purple one. The number of circles continue forever, not shown in the diagram of course.

Each interior circle touches the other two at one point each. The radius of the biggest circle is 12. What is the area of the biggest circle when you remove all the littler circles it contains?
