THE LANDOWNER'S FENCES.





(Various Dissection Puzzles)
The landowner in the illustration is consulting with his bailiff over a
rather puzzling little question. He has a large plan of one of his
fields, in which there are eleven trees. Now, he wants to divide the
field into just eleven enclosures by means of straight fences, so that

enclosures (and no more), and then see how many fences you require. Of
course the fences may cross one another.
