New Puzzles 1I am adding a lot of new puzzles by Stephen Froggatt (a retired teacher). Here is the first batch. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20120915 22:38:23
Re: New Puzzles 1Hi MIF The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #3 20120915 22:38:42
Re: New Puzzles 1Hi MIF; 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 20120915 22:51:17
Re: New Puzzles 1Oh, btw, if matchsticks are of the same length then the solution to that puzzle is incorrect!

Re: New Puzzles 1Wonderful. Included your circles diagram, bobby, and mentioned GeoGebra, thanks. And included your Path Plodding Puzzle solution. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20120916 08:16:17
