Square = half itself? (Posted on 2006-05-04) Difficulty: 1 of 5
A man had a window a yard square, but it let in too much light. He blocked up half of it. After this he still had a square window a yard high and a yard wide. How did he do it?

In defense of Charlie's and Jyqm's solutions, I suppose you could say that even though you've covered half of it, you would still have a 1 yard square window.  Just because you've covered it doesn't mean it's not there...
