The cool maths that games can teach you!I'm going to present you with 2 simple geometry problems. I've already bumped into them and have found solutions on my own, though doubtless there is (was) someone out there who's solved these before me. An intelligent man usually knows how to reach his goals. A wise man also knows what goals to reach... #2 20050914 07:05:08
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!I didn't undestood what you want in the second problem #3 20050914 07:25:28
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!First, thank you for the cool puzzles. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20050914 15:54:02
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!No intuitive answers? But all answers are intuitive! I also don't know what #2 is asking. These answers aren't rigorous proofs by any means, just intuitive thoughts based on the definitions of things. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #5 20050915 01:33:01
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!A "geometrical body" can have a point connected to only another point and still be a closed figure Last edited by kylekatarn (20050915 01:47:02) #6 20050917 21:53:27
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!Sorry, I didn't mention we were talking about a volumetric body. But no. The answer is quite simple actually.

Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!Sony, that's MathsIsFun, not winked. That's just his user award thingamob. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #9 20050918 12:09:57
Re: The cool maths that games can teach you!Hey sony, what happens if you have a sphere? There's technically no facets... El que pega primero pega dos veces. #10 20050918 13:32:55
