March 2014 PUZZLE - "An Engineer, A Physicist, And A Mathematician..."
A farmer challenges an engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician to fence off the largest amount of area using the least amount of fence.
The engineer made his fence in a circle and said it was the most efficient.
The physicist made a fence all the way around the world, and said that fencing off one half of the Earth was the best possible outcome.
The mathematician laughed at the others and, with his design, beat them all.
The March Bonus:What was the mathematician's design?
