Take a square, draw a line down the middle dividing it in half, now take the rectangle remaining on the left and divide it in half with a line, now take the rectangle on the right and divide it into thirds, now without lifting your pencil, crossing the same segment twice, or crossing your own line, you must cross every segment on the square..

Ive two squares drawn out on paper, and cant even know where to start, do we have to go accross all of the lines in the square, wihtout crossing it, or do we have to go into the segments wthout crossing lines(which seems far to easy) Im not on the computer, im on webtv, so i cant draw what i mean, but if i get a chance on tuesday in IT, ill try and draw it in wrd, or drawing!!!

Moving on.

(b) Matches the GL puzzle - only if you divide your sides up the other way, similar wording doesn't mean its the same problem. The GL puzzle had a diagram to go with it, this doesn't.
