Paul Lockhart's problems

most of these are from Paul Lockhart's 'Measurement' book

finding relationships can involve:
exact trigonometric values
surd manipulation

'People don’t do mathematics because it’s useful. They do it because it’s interesting … The point of a measurement problem is not what the measurement is; it’s how to figure out what it is.'
Paul Lockhart

(second attempt - sorry!)
