On the Bee Happy Graphics blog, there is a simple(?) geometry problem inspired by actual events. As it says in the blog, the best seven answers receive a discount on their next print. This could be handy for an upcoming Clicktique.

In one past life I was a high school math teacher. This is Bee Happy Graphics' first math promotion, but now that the genie is out of the bottle, who knows what's next. I've already come up with a printing problem involving pre-algebra that I may share with you. Stay tuned.


P.S.

Although this is our first math-type promotion, it is not the first time I've discussed math (go to the blog and change the category to "Applied math";), nor is it our first promotion (change category to "Promotions";).

It's time to end the suspense! Our own Jim Farrington came up with the best answer. Then I added a few more comments of my own. Return to "A Simple Mat(h) Problem" for the details. The answers are in the comments section.

Thanks, John. Jim Farrington says the answer is four. But there is one week left and the top seven answers get prizes. It's not too late to give it some thought.

Hi Bruce, after a quick look, I would say 3 is the answer. But I have been wrong before and I could be wrong again.

John, I forgot to mention that in accordance with the rules of the contest, you have also won the prize as one of the top seven answers to this question. As a former math teacher, I would have preferred a more detailed answer, and I would have preferred that you post that more-detailed answer directly on the Bee Happy Graphics site so any potential non-KCC photographers could have enjoyed it, but that wasn't stipulated in the rules. Your answer was only one less than the highest possible. Congratulations. Check the post to see how to redeem your prize (or just call).
