I searched for google it said "No cheating" :D
@Yahoo! please mention the link of your answer also : http://www.mathsisfun.com/puzzles/gardens-solution.html
and btw yahoo how did you arrive at your answer...? seems interesting
Well I know @sasogeek that how he arrived to the answer 1) saw the quest. 2) right click and clicked copy or just ctrl+c 3) searched in google 4) clicked on the link 5) repeated step 2 for answer 6) pasted here 7) posted "sorry if this irritated you" ..@sasogeek
really if that's what happened which i have anticipated though, then im very disappointed. i'm currently scripting a program to solve it though... will see how it goes
hmn though I will like to try
but I will prefer to just make this whole para (novel) as given things..........that will make the process easy
