Getting out

  1. Apr 3, 2005 #1
    Draw a closed circle on a sheet of paper. Put the pencil on the center of the circle. You have to get out of the circle without crossing it and the pencil cannot leave the sheet of paper.

    Touch a corner of the paper into the circle, transfer the pencil, and unfold

    1- If the pencil has a rubber, rub out part of the circle and leave through the gap.

    2- punch a hole through the paper with the sharp pencil & move it to the other side.

    Whozum was right...I should have added : the circle cannot be cut or broken...
