Puzzle
- US Version
A man sitting next to you on the train shows you a picture he's drawn.
"Let's say the picture has a total area of 10. Can you figure out how much of it is made up of clouds compared to the area that's made up of sky? Don't think you need to guess the answer. There's a definite method you can use to work this out."
How much of the area is sky versus clouds?

The key here is to use the studs surrounding the picture to divide it up. Once you do that, it should be clear that B and F, C and I, D and G, and E and H are simply pairs of the same drawings with the color reversed. This means that in these eight areas, there are four squares of sky and four squares of clouds. The remaining two squares, A and J, are solid blue, so in the end, there are six squares of sky and four squares of clouds.

The key here is to use the screws on the frame to divide the picture. Once you do that, it should be clear that B and F, C and I, D and G, and E and H are all simply pairs of the same drawings with the colours reversed. This means that in these eight areas there are 4 squares' worth of cloud and 4 of sky. The remaining two squares, A and J, are completely blue, so the totals are 6 squares of sky and 4 squares of cloud.
