New Puzzles 3Another installment of "Stephen Froggatt" puzzles: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20121003 18:19:20
Re: New Puzzles 3Hi 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 20121003 18:32:43
Re: New Puzzles 3Hi MIF; Simplifies to: Headers = 3 Leggers = 6 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 20121004 15:02:29
Re: New Puzzles 3Thanks anonimnystefy, I will redo the illustrations. Do you think it best to number them from topdown (as in puzzle), or bottomup (as you would lay them)?

Re: New Puzzles 3hi MIF
Top down did confuse me when I looked at this solution. I think bottom up as you would lay them would be more logical. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #7 20121004 17:21:17
Re: New Puzzles 3I agree with Bob.

Re: New Puzzles 3Thanks, updated now. Can you check it (use refresh): Overlapping Squares Solution "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #9 20121006 03:43:27

Re: New Puzzles 3He created mathsisfun.NET, that is how we got to know each other. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #11 20121006 18:26:48
Re: New Puzzles 3Uhhuh. I am asking because I found on a site of one guy that he is the creator of MathsIsFun website and had provided a link which led to your site which obviously had me confused.
