In this article, Shailesh Shirali begins with a seemingly simple question but develops the answer into not one, but four different proofs! While the content focuses on mathematics that has many applications, some of which are mentioned here, the multiplicity of proofs is an added draw, helping the teacher to illustrate innovative ways of thinking and connections across approaches.
