Overlapping Squares 2
Take 2 identical 12 cm
squares of paper. Place one exactly on top
of the other. As you
rotate the top square about its centre,
the area of overlap
between the 2 squares decreases,
and the corners of the
lower square ‘stick out’.
What is the largest fraction of the lower square you will ever see ?
