THE SPOT ON THE TABLE.





(Money Puzzles)
A boy, recently home from school, wished to give his father an
exhibition of his precocity. He pushed a large circular table into the
corner of the room, as shown in the illustration, so that it touched
both walls, and he then pointed to a spot of ink on the extreme edge.
"Here is a little puzzle for you, pater," said the youth. "That spot is
exactly eight inches from one wall and nine inches from the other. Can
you tell me the diameter of the table without measuring it?"
The boy was overheard to tell a friend, "It fairly beat the guv'nor;"
but his father is known to have remarked to a City acquaintance that he
solved the thing in his head in a minute. I often wonder which spoke the
truth.
