A strangely shaped container sits before you.
All sides of the shape, save for depth, are of equal length.
All four points, A, B, C, and D, are located in the center of their respective sides. Additionally, line AD, line BC, and the depth of the container are all one foot.
What is the total volume of the figure in cubic feet? Don't worry about the thickness of the walls of the vessel.
No, try again.
If your tactic is a series of complicated mathematical equations, you'll only make this puzzle more difficult for yourself. This one can actually be solved very quickly if you try reorganizing your thoughts.
As shown above, the odd shape you were given can be reconfigured into a cube with a volume of one cubic foot.
In the Japanese version, this puzzle is listed as Weekly Puzzle 26. The Japanese version of this puzzle has you find how many liters of water you can fit into the container. Since the container has a volume of one cubic meter, the answer is 1000 liters.
