Wrapping an Equilateral Triangle (Posted on 2005-10-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
You have an equilateral triangle you want to wrap with a square piece of paper. If the triangle has unit sides, what is the smallest square piece of paper that can be folded around the triangle such that both the front and back sides of the triangle are completely covered by the paper?

Hmm... The text-editor must not be completely compatible with your browser.  I guess you have no way of adding html codes in your comments.  You're missing out on links and pre tags.  What browser are you using?

I use firefox, and it's not entirely compatible either.  The keyboard arrows work inconsistently as do the copy-paste abilities.  I sorta wish Levik (the director) had chosen a more compatible text-editor.
