Post by HansV »

Try to solve this puzzle without searching the Internet. It's not really difficult.

If your absence does not affect them, your presence didn't matter.

How can circles have corners?

Its the corners of the sector of the circle.
Its like Pie. When you cut it into quarters, your each each slice from the corners. :yum:

Not the corners of the circles (indeed, circles don't have corners), but of the sectors. For example, the number 18 should be the sum of the numbers/digits in the three corners of its sector:

In my training, corners were where lines intersect at right angles. Pies are (normally) sliced through center axes thus forming acute angles at the slice intersections.

... or maybe I was looking for a trick questios.
