I do hope you enjoyed the pun in the title there, after looking at the picture below. Now, on with the show!
Today, I present to you nine dots arranged in a grid:
Your task is to connect all the dots with four consecutive straight lines. Here are the rules specifically:
- You may only use four lines.
- The lines must be consecutive, i.e. they must follow on from each other – the best way to think of this is to imagine you’re drawing the lines by hand. Your pen wouldn’t be allowed to leave the paper in between drawing each line.
- The lines cannot bend, curve, change shape, warp through time and space to appear elsewhere or generally do anything which would cause them not to be straight.
- You have to connect all the dots.
- You may start anywhere.
Have fun, and expect an answer on Friday!
