**Engineer Physicist Mathematician puzzle - 15 june**A farmer challenges an engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician to fence off the largest amount of area using the least amount of fence.

The engineer made his fence in a circle and said it was the most efficient.

The physicist made a long line and said that the length was infinite. Then he said that fencing half of the Earth was the best.

The mathematician laughed at the others and with his design, beat the others. What did he do?

I think

ReplyDeletemathematician will fence in small circle, and the area outside the circle will be the largest area coverd by fence

he will fence smallest circle possible and it would be largest area ....as it would encircle the area outside it i.e whole earth...

Deletewhole universe

Deletemathematician will fence in small circle, and the area outside the circle will be the largest area coverd by fence

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician will put a dot and the area out of it all fenced.

ReplyDeletesimple:

ReplyDeletethe mathematician just makes a tiny circle fence,stands outside it,and says the job is done!

Mathematician calculates area of a square/triangle or which ever is less,and he will fence in that area. (Since area of a circle is greater than area of a triangle, he might do fencing in the form of a right angled triangle)

ReplyDeleteRegardless the shape of a plane, the amount of area is dependant on the size of the plane. Thereby, without first knowing the dimensions of the shape, be it square, triangle, circle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, quadrilateral, whatever formation of boundaries you may choose, the area of one is not predominant over the other.

Deletehe will fence whatever the engineer and the physicist has done

ReplyDeleteadmin........pls give de answer for dis question.......

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician made a small fence around himself and declared himself to be on the outside.

ReplyDeletegud 1

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician made a small amount of fencing, and the outside was the larger part.

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician takes a sword and fences around the whole area without actually using any fences

ReplyDeleteWhen I first read "Fence" that was my thought exactly. HaHa

Deletedoesnt do anything.... whole world is fenced...

ReplyDeleteHe breaks down the fence into two lawn chairs for the farmer and himself, gets a case of cold beers and tells everyone else to jump off the face of the earth

ReplyDeleteYou are all thinking out of context. What the math mathematician did was build a design(probably a weapon) and beat all the others with it. He was the only one left...winner winner chicken dinner.

ReplyDeletewhatever the mathematician dose with his circle of fence, the engineer can say the same, for his is also a circle.why can't the mathematician just fence somthing biger then everyon ells's, exsept leave huge spaces between the difront pices of fence.

ReplyDeleteFencing supplies are not just the fence posts. you have to include everything that the fenceposts support.

DeleteAlso, just because a circle surrounds a greater area, does not mean that it is more effective. Increase the size of the circle, the fence must be extended exponentially.

The mathematician uses a small piece of fence and places it on the ground to create a point, so that anything outside of it is fenced.

ReplyDeletehe will assume

ReplyDeletehe doesnt put any fence down and has everything contained

ReplyDeletea baloon...

ReplyDeleteHe connected his fence with the others fences :D

ReplyDeleteUsing three posts and three cross members, the mathamatician constructs a triangular fence to the theoretically smallest internal area possible. He then declares that he has fenced off the worlds area minus only the area inside the fence.

ReplyDeletei think he said that"let us assume that the earth is within the fence" and prove it in a paper.

ReplyDeleteHe will not do anything and say i have the world anyway hes proberly god ;)

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician placed a hollow fence pole down and claimed anything outside the pole as fenced off from the outside(the hollowed area being the outside)

ReplyDeletethe mathmaticain makes a square around him and says the outside is the fenced part. by the way im only 11 years old!

ReplyDeletedoes he necessarily need to use fence? why not some other material?

ReplyDeletebtw im 10 yrs old

Im 10 and i think that he made the smallest circle and claimed that was the outside and that everything around it was the inside and was fenced! OSH

ReplyDeletei think he literally beat the others with his design as in physically

ReplyDeleteWhy is it relevant that you're ten? oh, right, you're ten.

ReplyDeletethe mathmagician plants one pole.

ReplyDeletedur

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician took a short piece of fence, rolled it up to make a stick, then proceeded to hit the others with it.

ReplyDeleteAnd that's how he "beat the others" with "his design"

:)

The mathematician said "largest amount of area using the LEAST amount of fence." Meaning whoever uses the least amount of fence wins. So the mathematician takes a fence post and cuts it into four pieces and lay them on the ground in a square...he wins....Least amount of fence covering the largest area for that small amount of fence.

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician said: Screw off, I don't need to prove anything to a farmer!

ReplyDeleteIsn't a fence going across the earth also a circle?

ReplyDeleteHe did nothing; therefore fencing off the entire world with zero fence used.

ReplyDeletemathematician made a small fence around himslf n declared hmslf on d outsde

ReplyDeletewhy

Deletehe ate the fence

ReplyDeletehe made him self a fence in the shape of a tiny square and the outside was the fenced in area

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician makes a fence around himself. Yes, you're thinking, 'But it's just the mathematician and a small circle of land in that area.' Yes you're correct but the mathematician claims himself to be the outside. So the 'inside' is the whole world apart from that mathematician and the small piece of land he is standing in, obviously.

ReplyDeleteThe mathematician puts no fence up, therefore the farmer would have entire world's area.
