Corporate Planning Instructions



  • Betty and Al have inherited a small rug factory from a elderly uncle.

  • They have decided to use the square rugs to design a yard game where players throw a bean bag onto a tri square rug to get points. (tri-square rugs is three square rugs connected at the corners)

Betty al inc

  • Initially they decide that Al will get a point if the bean bag falls on the largest square.

  • Betty will get a point if the bean bag falls on either of the smaller two squares.

  • No points are assigned if the bean bag falls in the triangle, or outside the square rugs

  • Since the area of the squares varies when using different sized rugs, the game is not always fair.

Betty al inc

  • Betty tried to design tri-square games where there was more surface area on the smaller two squares, giving her a better chance to win.

  • Al designed games where the largest square had more surface area giving him a better chance to score points.

  • Once in a while they discovered combinations that were fair for both. (equal areas)

  • Also there were some combinations of squares that could not be used because they couldn’t connect at the corners.
