Your Yin, My Yang (Posted on 2008-01-19) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Consider a cylinder having the two major halves of the Yin-yang symbol as the profile of two moulded pieces of differently coloured woods.

Allow one of these pieces to be obliquely cut from A to B as in the illustration.

What percentage by volume of the whole cylinder do each of these two parts represent?

The lower part of the illustration attempts to portray a receding void on the left and having cylindrical dimensions against a similar protuberance on the right, and of the same scale.

Also consider the lower section of the graphic to be an 'abbreviated' cross-section of the top, but rotated through 90. And, if it wasn't obvious, the small black and white circles are to be dismissed from your thoughts.
