The Circular Table
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
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?
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!

|Take a string, wrap it around the table. Divide its length by pi, then 2.|

|Come to think of it, you can find the middle of any item without having to mark it in any way.|

|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.|

|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.|

|it would be even easier to buy a table which is the exact same and mark stuff on that|

|How would you get a piece of paper as large as the table?|

|Why would she WANT to find the middle of the table? |
