Problem of Square BoardsHi all, #2 20130612 05:10:05
Re: Problem of Square BoardsHi golchhamohit; 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. #3 20130612 09:39:20
Re: Problem of Square BoardsHi golchhamohit, In ascending order of board size: Any value of x will give the 5 square feet differences between the boards' surface areas as per the puzzle wording.
