Hello there,

Here is a brain-wrecking riddle suggested to us by Pinaki Mondal, a posdoctoral fellow at the department of mathematics, Weizmann Institute of Science.

You have a straight edge and a compass and you wish to draw a straight line from one point to another distant point, located beyond the length of the straight edge. How do you proceed?

Good luck,
