You never stated that the line had to be a straight line. There is a famous brain teaser, the one engineers use to show graphically the abstract concept of "thinking outside the box," which is an expression we (engineers) use often and one I hear more and more from non-engineers. It reminds us not to place unnecessary constraints on oursleves when solving problems. (There are usually enough constraints already placed on us by things and people beyond our control.) Here's what you need to do: On a piece of paper, arrange nine dots in a 3 x 3 square. The goal is to connect the nine dots with only FOUR STRAIGHT lines without lifting the pencil from the paper. The lines you draw must be straight-edge straight. They may not bend or curve. Good luck, and remember to "think outside the box." (I'll give you the solution in a few days -- if no one else does!) Ok if you want the answer read carfuly the folowing text... First start at either the top (left or right) or the bottom (left or right) of the 3x by 3x dot square, make a diagnal line from one of the dots to the other at the complete other side, then make a line from that dot horizontally, to the dot at the other side of the square but continue onward the length of another invisable dot (outside of the box), then go in a diagnal line from there to the left midle dot carrying on through to the top middle dot and onward AS IF to a third top right dot. and finally go strait down to the very bottom right dot. If done correspondingly to the directions above you should have connected all nine dots with four lines. and that is how you think outside the box.
well it doesnt say where the dots are... so u can just place a line and arrange 9 dots on it
Put all of the dots in a straight line.
put all nine dots in a straight line, then any positive number of lines will be sufficient.
A 3x3 square of large dots can easily be connected with four straight connected lines. I know a way to do it with three. But I guess you need pictures for this. Ask on my message board to remind me to try and draw it out.
While invisioning the dots as the buttons on a telephone's touch pad, draw a line from the 1, through the 4 and 7, all the way to the *. Without lifting your pen, draw a line from the *, through the 8 and 6, to a point just to the right of the 3. Now draw a line through the 3 and 2, to the 1. Finally, draw a line from the 1, through the 5, to the 9. You don't say how the 9 dots are arranged so draw a square and put 9 dots anywhere on the lines of the square. Answer: Here is a link to a picture of the solution for this problemhttp://the-programmers-stone.com/wp-content/uploads/2008059Dots4Lines.png Goofy Answer You can do it with only one line. Just put the nine dots in a strait line, then draw a line through them.Who said the Lines Had to Be Straight?
Hoped this helped!
Okay!Here Are Your Nine Dots In Number Form:1 2 34 5 67 8 9Now, start at dot 3and draw a line through dot 5 to dot 7.Now, draw a line from dot 7 leading to dot 9, but go over dot 9.After that, draw a line joining from the end of the previous line to dot 2, but going over dot 2 to be in line with dot 1:And Last Off, Draw a line going from the previous line though to dot 7. Finished (:
if those dots are suppost to be commas, than the answer nine qudrillion, if those dots arent suppost to be commas, than its nine
lol easy, I know this one. since I cant put pictures in, look it up in youtube.
Sonnet is a nine line poem .
There are nine square feet in one square yard.There are nine square feet in one square yard.
| \ | \ / * * * | / \ * * * | / \ * _ * _ * _ \ up the first row of dots from bottom diagonal down to the right across to left diagonal to the right upwards
Start at the bottom left dot, go up to the top left dot but carry on as though there is another invisible dot above it, then go diagonal right to the top middle dot and carry on to the middle right dot and carry on again as if there is another invisible dot to the right of the bottom row of dots, then go left to the bottom left dot, then go diagonal right to the top right dot.
The square root of nine is three, and that is not an irrational number.
The square root of nine is three, so the answer is three meters.
From the top left dot, draw a line downwards, past the third dot (as though there is another dot there). Now, draw a diagonal line horizontally to your right, passing the dot below the center one and the one on the right of the center dot. Make sure the line goes pass the dot on the right of the center dot, as though there was another dot there. Then, draw a vertical line to the end on the left top row and draw a diagonal line down the center from the top left to the bottom right dot.
There are 36,400 square meters in nine acres of land.
One square yard is nine square feet.
line nine of what?
It is 81.
If you mean nine dots (3 lines of 3) then it is: Start off at the bottom left dot. Go up to the top dot and carry on as though there is another dot directly above it. (think of it as an invisible tenth dot). Go down diagonal right over the two dots (the first dot you will hit is the top middle dot) so you finish up on the middle right dot. Go up to the top right dot. Go down diagonal left to the bottom lef dot. Then right to the bottom right dot.
Nine square feet.
The square root of a number is the inverse of the square. For example, three squared equals nine, so the square root of nine is equal to three.
