FARMER WURZEL'S ESTATE.





(Patchwork Puzzles)
I will now present another land problem. The demonstration of the answer
that I shall give will, I think, be found both interesting and easy of
comprehension.
Farmer Wurzel owned the three square fields shown in the annexed plan,
containing respectively 18, 20, and 26 acres. In order to get a
ring-fence round his property he bought the four intervening triangular
fields. The puzzle is to discover what was then the whole area of his
estate.
