Mellor’s Garden

April 21st 2006

Today’s Brainteaser.

Old Mellor bought his garden many years ago and got it dirt cheap, probably because it was in the shape of a trapezium. The two diagonals of the trapezium divide the garden into four triangles each for vegetables, fruit, flowers and lawn. Mellor remembers that the area of each triangle is a whole number of square yards, that the lawn is 80 square yards in area, and that the vegetable garden is 45 Square yards in area.

Question. What the fuck is a trapezium?

 Answers in the Comments section please. 10 pounds for the first correct answer. The editor’s decision is final.
