Impossible Questions

Postby ScienceGuy2012 on Thu Feb 02, 2012 4:23 pm

If you have an impossible question, post it here. It has to have at least 1 correct answer. To post your impossible question, you must also post your solution to the previous one. We don't want question cram and crap. If noone replies in a month you must post a new impossible question. Otherwise, back to me.

OK,starting with my impossible question from today, groundhog day: How many squares in a triangle? :confused:

not nessesarily
it can only be if the trinagle is Right-angled and Isosceles
like this:

if the triangle would be different it would be a parallerogram
WTF MATH
oh and the question NO IDEA HOW MANY

3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419...
it might be 6 as well 'cause you didn't ask what's 23rd decimal place of pi...

what was the time in Japan when i posted this?

Haha. The rule for that actually is: 2 of the triangle's vertices are 2 of the square's corners. They create a line. Let's say that's a. the opposite, let's say O.
The triangle's third vertice has to be touching the side O. Therefore, it fits.

Heehee I beat you at math and I'm only 10 years old.

the triangles would have to be cut in certain ways to make a perfect square. one of my math teachers taught me that. or was that something with cones and cylinders...
