Problems

Blog posts with problems to get your brain going! You get a new problem every fortnight and the solutions are published later.

If you want the problems delivered to your inbox be sure to subscribe to the Problems newsletter.

The next problem is scheduled for Sunday, 31st of October.

You may notice some problems are missing... I'm still migrating articles from my old blog.

Can you find a really large triangle that is also really tiny?

A bunch of ants are left inside a very, very, tight tube, and they keep colliding with each other and turning around. How long will it take them to escape?

In this post I talked about the riddle of the water buckets. Now I challenge you to prove that in some situations it is impossible to solve it!

Gandalf has some Hobbits to appease but his task seems to go on forever. Can you give him a hand..?

Two friends were bored and decided to play a game... a mathematical game with a paper bag!

This post's format will be a bit different from the usual and the first of a series of posts of this type. In this post, I will state a problem and then present my solution.
