Maybe it's a logical problem, but it was proclaomed as a geometrical problem.
A window of a house was doubled, but its width and height didn't change. How it is possible?
maybe, this will sound funny but this is the only reason i can think of..
the length doubled.. see, it didn't ask you if it was its area, volume or whatsoever that doubled. and i haven't seen any window which is only two dimensional so maybe, that would be the answer..
My approach is logical and I'm sure there is a mathematical approach which isn't coming to my head.
I would say that as the width and height didn't change, it could mean that the window is split within (e.g. adding a frame in between). This would mean that there are two windows on either sides of the frame.
It's a trick question . . . and your answer is correct!
A window of a house was doubled, but its width and height didn't change.
How it is possible?
This is one possible shape for the window.
Code:* - * * : * * : * * : * * height * * : * * : * * : * * : * - : - width - :
And the new window looks like this:
Code:*-----*-----* - | . . | : | . . | : * * : |. .| height | . . | : | . . | : | . . | : | . . | : *-----*-----* - : - width - :
