Height of the Church Tower – The 1000th Task
In February 2017, the 1000th task will be uploaded in the MathCityMap system. The author, Johannes Moos, asks for the height of the church tower in Gernsheim, which can be determined with help of the statue of Peter Schöffer and the given distance between the church and the statue. The task can be solved with help of the intercept theorems. It can be found in and transferred to other situations easily. Such tasks are called generic tasks.
Johannes Moss can be pleased with a MathCityMap folding rule which will be delivered soon.
