Re: divide a rectangle in two blockHi; 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. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20120910 22:39:07

Re: divide a rectangle in two blockFor the 8 x 16 rectangle you have in the picture. This is one answer. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: divide a rectangle in two blockTry this one then. 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. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #14 20120911 10:56:08
Re: divide a rectangle in two blockHi; The width is 8 so we can only adjust the length from 0 to 16. We solve that with algebra. L = 4.8 So the dimensions of the rectangle are 4.8 x 8. See the drawing. 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.
