## The Circular Table

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #646 Fun: (2.08) Difficulty: (1.64) Category: Logic Submitted By: Spencer Corrected By: horse_luver

A lady has an expensive table and wants to find the exact middle of the table. How does she do this without making any marks on the table?

### Answer

The lady gets a piece of paper the size of the table, then she folds the paper in half in both ways. She puts a dot right where the two folds meet. That is where the middle of the table is!

 fishmed Aug 12, 2003 How about a tape measure? Sane Feb 18, 2005 Take a string, wrap it around the table. Divide its length by pi, then 2. Shawnheyhey123 Jan 06, 2006 Super Easy!!!! Did'nt like that much. Winner4600 Jan 13, 2006 I like Sane's way better... paul726 Mar 04, 2006 Come to think of it, you can find the middle of any item without having to mark it in any way. MadDog72 Mar 12, 2006 The solution doesn't work for all shapes of tables, e.g. a triangular table. The question should be revised to read "a square table" or "a circular table" or whatever. MadDog72 Mar 12, 2006 Oh, I'm stupid, I just noticed it says "A circular table" in the title. jntrcs Apr 07, 2006 tape measurer duh just a long one so u dont mark it. stil Apr 23, 2006 This is easier than constructing a large circle of paper. Take two squares of paper. The width is fine if it approximates half that of the table. Fold both squares down middle forming rectangular halves. Unfold one square. Take one side that is divided by the fold and place that side's corners at the very edge of the table. Do the same with the other square, placing it so the fold lines of the two sheets of paper cross. The point where they cross is the center of the table. DEJL Aug 22, 2006 Nice.It should be square. LeafFan4life Mar 06, 2007 it would be even easier to buy a table which is the exact same and mark stuff on that hersheyugget Apr 28, 2007 i said use tracing paper and make marks on that Romono445 Aug 16, 2007 How would you get a piece of paper as large as the table? Deedee123 Dec 30, 2007 Why would she WANT to find the middle of the table? NoriMori Jan 22, 2015 Everyone saying "a tape measure", that wouldn't work because you wouldn't know with precision if you were measuring its diameter. You could be off-center.
