A woman has two rugs of the same material, one 10 feet by 10 feet and one a long runner 8 feet by 1 foot. How can she make a single continuous cut in the 10 foot by 10 foot rug, so as to form two pieces which, when combined with the 8 foot by 1 foot rug can be stitched into a rug 9 feet by 12 feet? The two rugs are of plain pattern and have a pile on one side only.

@Melody:/  This is the RIGHT answer to the above problem!  The answer just above your 2nd last post  is also mine, and it is WRONG! Please, take action and correct things up. Thank you!

Melody, I don't take credit for answering that question. 

The website from which I posted above question, had also the answer for it.

I just pasted their correct answer here because my answer, #4 on this page, is wrong!

 I wish I could've gotten the right answer for this tough cookie. btw, I'm civonamzuk

Can someone, please erase the answer #4 on this page, it's so embarrassing.

When they started littering this forum with bad stuff, I've decided to erase all my posts and leave.

If things get better, I'll come back.

Ok I understand :(

Sometimes I feel the same way.

I expect things will get a lot better when the forum is revised but I do not know when that will be. :(
