Re: Lateral puzzle

ok.. you can't repeat the rows from the other side.. so a triangle with mid point having a tree and the center of the triangle having a tree.

Re: Lateral puzzle

Oh ! Come on now,.. this was just too much,..!!

How a hexagon can have rows of 3 trees, more than 3 in numbers. ( by doing it, like you say )
We need six such rows.

___

For any regular triangle ( in this case, let say, not necessarily 60, but say,..all angles smaller than 90 ) ( assume for a while, an equilateral triangle, to make this case easier ),....
it can have four known and geometrically famous different kendras ( points ),
that all the lines joining from the vertices to the opposites sides, and still they all 3 lines can intersect in a single point, with a specific purpose.


1. Joining a line ( total 3 nos.) from each vertices to the opposite sides' midpoint - known as madya-kendra of a triangle.

2. Joining a line ( total 3 nos. ) from each vertices to the opposite sides' at a right angle ( perpendicularly ) - known as lamb-kendra of a triangle.

3. Create an antah-kendra first and then

Joining a line ( total 3 nos.) from each vertices passing to that antah-kendra and striking on the opposite side.

Note: Antah-kendra is a point in a triangle, on which you can draw a circle, such that it touches all three sides, from inside, at a single point, on all 3 sides.

4. Create an outer-kendra first and then,..

Joining a line ( total 3 ) from each vertices passing to that outer-kendra and striking on the opposite side.

Note: Outer-kendra is a point in triangle, on which you can draw a circle, such that it touches all three vertices, and can draw an outer circle on teh triangle encompassing it.

5.

More broadly speaking,.... inside a regular triangle, put a point anywhere, somewhere in the middle open area
( in this case, let say, not necessarily 60, but say,..all angles smaller than 90 ) ( assume for a while, an equilateral triangle, to make this case easier )

then joint a line from all vertices passing through that point and till it strikes on the opposite side.

There may be 100s of diff. positions for that point, in thsi broader sense of speaking

_________________________________

And, you put trees in every of the above situations,

1. at the vertices of the triangle,
2. the point which is common for all three inside lines - joining from vertice to the opposite side
3. and on all 3 points where the above 3 lines strike on the opposite sides of a triangle

^^^ All will be the answers, for the said question in the riddle.

Re: Lateral puzzle

Sachin is on 99 at non striker end. Ganguly is the striker. 1 ball to go. 1 run to win. How does Sachin complete his century and win the match?

Re: Lateral puzzle

Incorrect puzzle .. Sachin on 99 and non striker with 1 ball to go? Not possible in a million years.

That's a very old riddle, no ?

It does not specify,.. whether in the same inning of the match, hence he may make one run in the next inning
and thus he made century and also won the match.

Other way would be,..

as soon as the bowler is running and live, both non-striker Sachin and Ganguli
starts running, and they very fast cross each other to switch their position,.... now,..at da bowler end, Ganguli is stumped and is out,..

Sachin gets the striker end, and Ganguli gets stumped at the other end,..

ball is not counted,..and one ball is still to go,. and now Sachin at da striker end, will hit 1 / 2 / 4 / 6.

they do,.. btw,.
i had seen it in one test match long ago,... for the very ball played, they took the max, possible 3 runs,
just to maintain their scores v/s the balls played, - looking good on average,.
even if for the winning, the needed runs were only two.

put the chess board in bank locker and throw the key in river Thames.. then nobody can take any of the queens.

Why is the extra run even counted, after the game is over with you having achieved the target? Cricket is such a dumb game I tell you.

The dumbest thing in cricket I question these days is .. why are runs allowed on edges? On this I respect baseball as a better sport, no runs are awarded on unintended shots, the field itself is designed in such a way. Just like when you play billiards you call the pocket and don't claim the ball you pocketed if you didn't obviously intend to hit a shot a particular way.

Many years ago in a small Indian village, a farmer had the misfortune of owing a large sum of money to a village moneylender. The moneylender, who was old and ugly, fancied the farmer's beautiful daughter. So he proposed a bargain.

He said he would forgo the farmer's debt if he could marry his daughter. Both the farmer and his daughter were horrified by the proposal. So the cunning money-lender suggested that they let providence decide the matter. He told them that he would put a black pebble and a white pebble into an empty money bag. Then the girl would have to pick one pebble from the bag.

1. If she picked the black pebble, she would become his wife and her father's debt would be forgiven.
2. If she picked the white pebble she need not marry him and her father's debt would still be forgiven.
3. If she refused to pick a pebble, her father would be thrown into jail.

They were standing on a pebble strewn path in the farmer's field. As they talked, the moneylender bent over to pick up two pebbles. As he picked them up, the sharp-eyed girl noticed that he had picked up two black pebbles and put them into the bag. He then asked the girl to pick a pebble from the bag.

Now, imagine that you were standing in the field. What would you have done if you were the girl? If you had to advise her, what would you have told her?



A mother gave birth to a twin. But their birthdays are different. Different year, month and day. How is this possible?
