Teaser game
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:35:01 PM »
First topic in RPG area!

... though I think this is the place for all forum games.

So, rules are simple- the first person to guess the right answer posts the new teaser (in case you don't have one ready yet- you might give the right to someone who has already come up with one).



Couldn't come up with something more original, sorry.

What, I told you I am out of ideas. Besides, messing with maths was not my idea. ;)

The... what-root?

(Sorry, never heard the expression "circle root" in english before and I can't seem to get what exactly it is in math language... Google doesn't help either...)

I guess ridle is made ok, and that pi m is not missing 2(square) on them.
Is it maybe 100 cm?
or 200 cm?

I don't say the riddle is not correct. I say I don't know what circle square is. ???
Can someone put an image/link with its mathematical expression?

I think it has to do with language "playing"... SQUARE->circle...
And since you gave dimensions m (meters) will remain m. So i guess the result will be πm.
Or πroot (at english proot...) funny sound...

Circle root doesnt exist, atleast as far as i know. Square, cubic... exist.
Maybe its playing like for square - square root  of 4 m2 = 200 cm. its square 2*2 m - surface area.
So if for circle you have surface area of pi m(i guess in this case it should write 2) - r2*pi=pi m so r2 =1 -- r= 1 m or 100 cm. But i dont know if thats solution. Or there is some word game in that ridle, because english isnt my native language, so i am not good in word games.
But for answer, we must wait creator of ridle.

I will not give you the answer. Not yet. But I will give you a hint and +k to Tiger and Crassus, since they noticed both the catches here (and the analogy which solves half the riddle).

1 m is not the correct answer (nor 100 cm).

Hint: I never make mistakes (atleast at maths). The word game goes only as far as what a "circle root" is supposed to be. And the answer might be a little out of line.

Oh lol, I didn't realise it was a riddle... I though it was a math problem. *xxx*

I'll be back if I have a solution. :)

Ok, I'd say 50cm. :)

Since Curion allready wrote pi m, i guess 100 pi m isnt solution? Logic behind is that circle root is first root, so it doesnt change anything, just change it into cm as you did in first example.
50 cm i solution if you think of pi m as perimiter(way arround circle - his length) 2 r pi = pi m - that crossed my mind first but i decided to go with P= r2 pi formula.
I am really curios, what the solution will be.

Our problem here is to define "circle root". Since Sheremetev measured it in meters and not square meters I don't think it's some kind of surface we need to root but length (that's how I understood it at first at least). That's why I used the circle's perimeter formula instead of its surface.

Something still doesn't feel right though... I'll recharge myself and then try to find out what's not in the right place.

I think i got something...
Since square have 2 dimensions and the root is the one dimension, if we apply the same to the circle. π (at meters) must be the circumference thus the root is one of it's "dimensions" the radians->R=0.5m... Cuorion's answer...
