- US Version
Three rope loops are tangled together with a single red rope. If you were to pull ends of the red rope, a single knot would form in the middle. Can you figure out how many of the rope loops would get caught in this knot when it forms?
Remember, even if a loop appears to have been pulled into the knot, you shouldn't count it in your answer if you can pull the loop free of the red rope with a tug.
- UK Version
Three loops of rope are tangled together with a single red rope that has been tied in a very loose knot. Can you work out how many of the smaller loops of rope would get caught in this knot when the red rope is pulled tight from both ends?
Remember, even if a loop passes through the knotted part of the red rope now, it might fall away when the red rope is tightened.
Make sure you examine every detail of the picture carefully!
Not a single loop will become truly entangled in the knot that forms. When you pull the red rope and form a knot, one loop will fall away, and the other two will hang from the red rope, free of the knot.
