Hello All,

Doing a past paper from City and stumped on one question:

I have a hexagon on the left and a circle on the right with a line joining them labelled as "square it". i.e. the number in the circle MUST be the square of the number in the hexagon.

Question: write a number in the hexagon and circle such that the number in the circle is smaller than the number in the hexagon.

I can get a number which is larger or same but not smaller!!!

Thanks.

If you need a number that is smaller when it is squared then:

0.5

0.5 squared = 0.25

It works for any number between 0 and 1
