Re: Area of SquaresHow much of the 50 foot circle can the goat reach without getting interrupted by the barn? What is that area? One, who adopts patience, will never be deprived of success though it may take a long time to reach him. Imam ali (as)<3 #58 20121115 09:31:16
Re: Area of SquaresOK. So you can work out the area of grass the goat can reach round to point H. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #63 20121115 09:58:58
Re: Area of SquaresI don't think you're getting it yet. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #65 20121115 10:14:19
Re: Area of SquaresOh that would be cruel. I think you may assume that the goat only pulls on the rope to the extent of 50 feet maximum. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #67 20121115 10:25:52

Re: Area of SquaresExcellent. Now you're talking. I think the goat will love you. All you've got to do is persuade him to go back and round the other way. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
