1. ## Stable Job

On an unrelated note...why did someone vote this as only 2 stars?? I think this was a really good puzzle and it was fun to solve...

(1a) solved

16. ## Lines for Squares

There may be better, but I was at least able to get each number 1-15 using the number of (infinite) lines as I said originally...That's kind of neat, considering the square constructions had to be completely different than what I doing using line segments...but still got the same numbers...
17. ## Lines for Squares

I don't think it works. Line is infinite, whereas you used line segments. In my thinking above lines create 8 square. I agree though, Pickett's answer appears to give 8 squares. Ahh, didn't realize the OP meant infinite lines, not line segments...that definitely makes the puzzle more fun/interesting

24. ## Lines for Squares

Just a little bump because I'm curious if anyone else has looked at this one and if my solutions above are indeed optimal or not...
25. ## Two Rectangles

Nice. Curious about your algorithm. Mine ran forever with n=100, (and came up empty.) I tried direct solutions also, restricting the first to be square and the second to be 1xm. Came up empty again.
