8'th rectangle is missing a line it's a pattern ? idk

it's not only about in which rectangle but where exactly;
just count sections -top being zero- down.

But no, the eigth rectangle is just as it needs to be.

The pattern is "common knowledge" it's just not obvious;
some lateral thinking should get you there.

i'm gonna be up all night

Now is that a good thing?
Anyways, don't forget the second part of the question.. "WHY"

With every of your Where-answers there should be a logical explanation. like this:

eigth rectangle, fifth section, since it's a dog, and he was missing his third leg.

im going to say that the line goes in the second rectangle in the second square to make it all even numbers in the rectangles but im probably rong.

What is wrong with you people? We are supposed to be STOMPING Sid- not ENABLING him! LOL.

Yes John Hanson of Maryland was the first president of the United States of "Congress Assembled"- while George Washington was the first president of the United States of America.

Still waiting on an answer to the tougher question.

BTW- This supposed to be about trivia-but since the door has been opened- If you have 12 coins and 1 is counterfeit- how can you determine which one is and whether it is lighter or heavier in only 3 weighings with a balance scalne?

Oh right, it probably wasn't the wig thing ;)

Well who was the fifth president.. Monroe, right?
Wait, the american revolution when was that? 17killthatcat?
So I say Monroe was the last president who actually was part of that revolution.
Adams was too young, correct?

One solution is to label the coins with the letters FAKE MIND CLOT and weigh the coins in the following three combinations:

MA DO -- LIKE
ME TO -- FIND
FAKE -- COIN Logic will now allow you to find the fake coin based on the three results. Bearing in mind we don't know whether the fake coin is lighter or heavier.

For instance, if the results were left down, balanced, left down, we could work out which coin is fake in the following way:

From the middle weighing we know that the coins METOFIND are all normal. So one of the coins ACKL is fake. Therefore looking at these coins one at a time in the other two weighings, we can see that:

A - appears on the left twice and could be fake.
C - appears only once, therefore can't be fake (otherwise the first weighing would be balanced).
K - appears on opposite sides, so it can't make the left side go down both times.
L - appears only once, therefore can't be fake (otherwise the third weighing would be balanced).

Therefore the only possibility is A, which must be heavier. Any other combination of ups and downs will allow you to use the same logic to find the fake coin.
