THE YORKSHIRE ESTATES.





(Patchwork Puzzles)
I was on a visit to one of the large towns of Yorkshire. While walking
to the railway station on the day of my departure a man thrust a
hand-bill upon me, and I took this into the railway carriage and read it
at my leisure. It informed me that three Yorkshire neighbouring estates
were to be offered for sale. Each estate was square in shape, and they
joined one another at their corners, just as shown in the diagram.
Estate A contains exactly 370 acres, B contains 116 acres, and C 74
acres.
Now, the little triangular bit of land enclosed by the three square
estates was not offered for sale, and, for no reason in particular, I
became curious as to the area of that piece. How many acres did it
contain?
