  • A shooting star crashes on Earth, and a hideous blob emerges.

    一顆流星撞上了地球, 出現了一隻可怕的黏液怪物。

  • It creeps and leaps, it glides and slides.

    它會爬行、會跳躍、 會滑動、會滑行。

  • It’s also unstoppable: weapons, fire, extreme temperaturesno matter what you throw at it, it just regrows and continues its rampage.

    而且它還所向無敵: 武器、火、極端溫度... 不論你用什麼方式攻擊它, 它總會再生並繼續製造暴亂。

  • Its expansion is breathtaking; it doubles in size every hour.

    它的擴展能力十分驚人;每小時,它的大小就會變成兩倍。

  • But there’s one opportunity: after each hour, it goes to sleep, forming itself into a flat triangle and resting for a few minutes before it begins eating and growing again.

    但我們有一個機會:每隔一小時它會進入睡眠, 將自己的形狀變成扁平三角形後休息個幾分鐘,接著又會再開始吞噬一切並繼續成長。

  • Your only chance to save the planet involves a satellite-mounted nano-fission ray that can cut through the blob.

    你只有一個機會能拯救地球,而這要用到裝在衛星上的奈米分裂光束來將它切成兩半。

  • When the blog is active it heals itself within seconds.

    當怪物在活動時,只要幾秒鐘的時間它就會癒合。

  • However, when you break the sleeping blob into two triangles, you make a critical discovery.

    然而,當你把在睡眠中的怪物切成兩個三角形後,有了重大的發現。

  • The acute triangle portion, with all angles less than 90 degrees, is inert.

    被切成銳角三角形的部分,也就是所有的角都小於 90 度的三角形,已不再具有生命力。

  • It neverwakes up.”

    它再也不會「醒來」。

  • The obtuse triangle, which has an angle greater than 90 degrees, wakes up as usual and keeps growing.

    至於鈍角三角形,也就是有一個角大於 90 度的三角形,還是一樣會醒來並繼續成長。

  • Similar experiments show that all shapes other than acute triangles, including right triangles, will also wake up.

    類似的實驗結果顯示, 除了銳角三角形之外的所有形狀,包括直角三角形,都還是會醒來。

  • For the next few minutes, the blob is sleeping in its obtuse triangle form.

    接下來的幾分鐘,怪物會以扁平三角形的形式進入睡眠。

  • You can make clean, straight-line cuts between any two points on or inside the triangle.

    你可以針對三角形上或三角形內選定的任兩個點,做到精準的直線切割。

  • But youll only have time to make 7 cuts while the satellite is above you.

    但當衛星通過你上方時,可以進行切割的時間只夠你切七次。

  • By the time it completes its orbit and returns, the blob will have consumed the entire world, if even a single portion that will wake up remains.

    當衛星完成繞行再回來時,就已經來不及阻止怪物把整個世界吞噬了,所以你萬萬不可以讓任何一個部分醒過來。

  • How can you cut the blob entirely into acute triangles and stop it from destroying the planet?

    如此一來,你要如何把怪物完全切割成銳角三角形,以阻止它摧毀地球?

  • Pause the video now to figure out for yourself

    [如果你希望自己嘗試解題,請在此暫停。]

  • Answer in 3, 2 ,1.

    [答案即將公布:3、2、1]

  • While this seems doable at first, there’s a hidden difficulty when it comes to avoiding obtuse and right angles.

    雖然一開始這個方法看似可行, 但若想避免鈍角和直角,便會碰到一個隱藏的困難點。

  • Every time you make a cut that reaches an edge, it either makes an acute and an obtuse angle, or two right angles.

    每當切割處接觸到邊緣時,就一定會製造出一個銳角和一個鈍角,不然就是兩個直角。

  • That makes it seems like youre doomed to keep creating obtuse angles.

    看起來似乎你注定會 一直製造出鈍角。

  • But as with so many of life’s problems, we can look to pizza for inspiration.

    但,就像許多人生難題一樣,我們能從比薩上找到靈感。

  • Imagine squaring off the outside of a pizza, so that instead of a circle, it’s an octagon.

    想像一下,把披薩的外緣切平, 讓它變成八角形,而不是一個圓。

  • When we cut it into slices, each of the eight triangles is acute.

    當我們把它切片後,這八個三角形都是銳角三角形。

  • This works with larger polygons too.

    對於邊數更多的多邊形, 這招也一樣可行。

  • Importantly, it also works for some polygons with fewer sides, including heptagons, hexagons, and pentagons.

    重要的是,對於邊數更少的多邊形仍然可行,包括七角形、六角形、五角形。那是好消息,

  • That’s good news, because if you cut off the sharp corners of the blob triangle, a pentagon is exactly what youll be left with.

    這可是好消息,因為如果把怪物三角形的尖角切除後,便會得到一個五角形。

  • And just like a pizza, you can cut the blob pentagon into 5 acute triangles.

    而就像比薩一樣, 你可以把怪物五角形切成五個銳角三角形。

  • That’s 7 cuts, and it renders the blob completely inert.

    在切了七次之後,怪物的生命跡象就完全消失了。

  • Youve saved the day!

    你拯救了世界!

  • Now you just need to figure out what to do with all of these giant, practically indestructible triangles.

    現在,你只需要想辦法處理這些巨大又無法破壞的三角形就行了。

  • Here is a bonus riddle for you: are triangles the best shape?

    以下是額外附上的謎題:三角形是最棒的形狀嗎?

  • Just kidding, that's not a riddlebut it is worth discussing! Watch these lessons and decide for yourself.

    開玩笑的,這其實不是什麼謎題-但它確實是值得討論的一個問題!觀賞這些課程來找出答案吧。

A shooting star crashes on Earth, and a hideous blob emerges.
