Start Thinking!Here is a list of some quotes from famous people. Sometimes I wrote my own opinion behind it in brackets. If you have any opinions or thoughts about the quotations please write me immediately a comment. You can write me also when you want to be included in the list of famous people. Just write me a wise thought.
When all these quotations are too philosophical for you, you should try to solve the task with the ant.

The task with the antOn the earth is the hill of the ant Jessica, from where she goes 10km north until she overruns an elephant. Of course, she puts it in her pocket! By doing it, she loses the orientation and does not walk home, but 100km to the east, until she notices that she walks in the wrong direction. Then she walks 10km south and is back on her hill. Where is the hill?
Notice the world is a disk, with a diameter of 3333 km, that is carried by two turtles. One pole is in the middle of the disk and the other is along the end of the world! Unfortunately, it is unknown which pole where is, so you have to solve the problem for both cases. (If you believe that such a world does not exist, you can solve the problem also, by assuming the house is on the earth.)
a) How many solutions exist?
b) Write down all solutions. (e.g. in form of an equation like "x=3z" or in a description of the position like "there at ...")
You get the solution when you ask for it by mail. Just write me to .
