Question about Mattel Fisher-Price Imaginext Big Foot

9 tiles together so they make up a 3x3 square make sure the head on each edge matches the tail of the adjacenttile

Hi Connie

Did you get that roof fixed? ;>)

You have to round these figures out a bit, and you always needs a few extra tiles in case of breaks or bad cuts.

So your 9ft 7 ins X 1ft 2ins is 10 foot x 1.5 feet is 15 square feet, or 1.66 square yards.

Your 3ft 2 ins x 1 ft is 3 square feet or .33 square yards.

Add the 2 together 1.66 plus .33 and as near as makes no matter, you want 2 square yards. I just had a quick check and wall tiles are packed in Square FEET. You need 18 Square Feet.

If you are careful, one box like this will do as it 17 square feet.

Description This cream-colored wall ceramic from Bravo has a glossy finish and is made for interior use. One box contains 136 3" x 6" tiles and covers 17 sq. ft.

Get yourself a notched trowel to put the adhesive on.

And a grouting squeegee to spread the grout.

And one of these to smooth the edge of the grout into the joints.

Another consideration is that some tiles are self spacing, but on others you need to use spacers to have a gap between them. Link in this article.

If you have to cut tiles, tile cutters are expensive, but the big box DIY stores will rent you one.

Big puzzles can at first seem to be very daunting, but when you complete it you feel a great sense of accomplishment. It doesn't matter if your puzzle is 50 peices or 1000 pieces using the same technique you are able to solve the puzzle no matter how intricate the image may be.

Always start by separating all the pieces according to whether they are edges or not, when you have separated all the pieces take the edges and start putting together your boarder. This helps give you a nice starting point and it gives you an idea of the size of the puzzle.

Once the border is completed if you are working with friends or family you can split up with image inside, like if its a landscape one could do the sky while another does the ground. I find it easiest to pull out all the pieces that go with the area you want to work on and lay them out facing you to see what matches.

After the big parts of the puzzle are completed the smaller things will begin to fall into place and before you know it the puzzle will be finished!

I don't think you can do it! Could you check your numbers.

If we are using the numbers 1-9 once and only once in a 3x3 magic square, the sum of the rows + the sum of the columns should be 90, since 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9 in the rows adds up to 45 and 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9 in the columns adds up to 45.

When trying to solve, the magic number seem to be the sums 24 and 10. To get 24, the only three numbers that add to 24 are 7 + 8 +9. Similarly to get 10, the lowest numbers re 1 and 2 and the smallest big number to use is 7. I then ran out of number trying to get 21, 13 and 15 sums.

Good luck,

Paul

The problem with this puzzle is in the wording of the constraints. We all assume that every edge has to touch a matching edge, but it does not actually say so in the rules. It can be proven that there is no solution if you require every turtle and crab edge to be matched, since there is an odd number of edges in total for each species.

I also wrote a program to compute the solution and it generated many configurations using 35 tiles with this bogus constraint. The final tile can be placed in the last spot if you allow two of its path edges to touch the non-path edges of surrounding tiles.

Fairly straightforward. It's where you start. Start with the 5 headed and 1 tail tile in the middle. The rest is just trial and error, about an hour.

This same puzzle was copied and handed out at a Mensa meeting according to this link:

http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~wagner/sheep/index.html

I have verified that the Mensa puzzle and the "Big Sheep Puzzle" at www.thebigsheep.co.uk are identical. The spotted sheep are replaced by the brown sheep in the Mensa puzzle. The instructions on the box claim 2 identical tiles, but there are really 2 sets of identical tiles in the puzzle. The author of the link above found 55 distinct solutions.

Puzzle #9 -One Poor Pooch

Puzzle #9 -One Poor Pooch

- Just keep the basic anatomy of a dog in mind when you're moving around the matches.
- The triangle represents the head, the match at the end is the tail, the square is the body, and the four matches at the bottom are legs. The dog must have all of these in the final product.
- Don't think of this in real life terms. Think of a cartoon dog getting flattened by a steamroller.
- Move the two inside legs to the top half of the square facing outwards.
**Reward:**35 Picarats**Hint Coins**:- Tap the candle directly above Matthew's head.
- Tap the circular painting underneath the middle of the three paintings by the stairs.
- Tap the top level of the bookcase.

- After collecting the hint coins, tap the bookcase to start up puzzle #10.
