Treasure Arrow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Natasha, the archaeologist faced a pretense while solving the mystery of a panel in a tower called the 'Tower Booby', which was expected to be having bombs in the walls. A vault was also expected to be placed behind a panel surrounded by booby-trapped neighboring panels. It seemed that the vault was pointed to by a pole called 'Treasure Arrow', which was 10-meters-long and the right end was 10 meters from the right wall of the tower. Tyler suggested that the Booby Tower problem could be solved with five bands when weights are known but only the arrowhead and pole weigh the same. After working on the problem, Tyler and Liane conferred the direction of the arrow and weight of arrowhead and pole.
