If we tie a goat to one peg, a circled grass is been eaten by the goat. If we tie the goat to two pegs with a circle on its neck, then an eclipse is eaten out of the grass by the goat. If we want an eclipse then we put two pegs then put a rope in between then and the other end of the rope is tied up on the goats neck.

How should we tie the peg and the goat so that a square is eaten out from the garden grass? We only have one goat rope and the peg and the rings ?

Tighten two ropes in the corners of the square and another rope between them by putting rings on each rope. That rope should be tightened on the goat neck on the opposite end

If we tie a light oxygen tank to a bird so that it can breathe on the moon, would the bird fly faster, slower, or the same speed as it does on earth? (Remember that there is less gravity on the moon.)

You are a farmer, with a round fenced field of radius 10 meters. You tie your goat to the fence with a rope, and realize that the goat can eat exactly half of the field. How long is the rope?

At a plant nursery they’re selling Magic Grass, a patch of sod that doubles in size every day.

Mohit goes to buy some and figures that his garden is big enough that if he buys one patch, it will cover his garden in 14 days, because each day it doubles in size.

So he decides to speed up the process, and buys two patches of sods.

How many days will it now take for the Magic Grass to cover his garden?
