Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
Architecture Puzzler #440


What is a simple formula for determining the number of board feet in a log?


In order to find the number of board feet in a log, subtract 4 inches from the diameter and square the remainder. The result will be the number of board feet in a 16-foot-long log. You can then add one-eighth for an 18-foot log, or subtract one-eighth for a 14-foot log, and so on.


Okay, got it? Now try this week's Puzzler:
