2. ## Painting a checkerboard

My point 2 is designed to cover this case (and similar cases). EDIT: That is, it can be as optimal, but it will never be more optimal.

5. ## Tiling a hexagon

I think I might have it.

Ah

13. ## Green and Yellow hats again, but harder

For 3 prisoners:

Hahaha
16. ## What's the only word?

While I've never seen this arrangement of words, I've seen a similar observation on a study of the same word. Btw, I laughed when I reread it.
17. ## Cubicle Stack #2

2) I wouldn't use "what shapes are left" but instead keeping with "after removing 27 cubelets, how many possibilities are there?" Which is 1. 3) ~950
18. ## Circles covering a rectangle

Clarifying question: Is the rectangle as large as possible meeting those constraints? Or as small as possible meeting those constraints? I feel like the number of circles required depends on that, but maybe it doesn't.

20. ## Random triangles in a circle

Yowch. Not only is that not true, but my initial premise isn't even correct. In my mind, I couldn't draw one that wasn't. Now, I can only think of counterexamples!

22. ## Random triangles in a circle

Oh, nice start.

24. ## Green and Yellow hats

The only problem is that it doesn't guarantee that anybody lives. Too much WiFoM
25. ## Green and Yellow hats
