To facilitate the description of this solution, let us give each of the 9 dots arranged in a 3 by 3 grid a number from 1 to 9:

1 2 3

4 5 6

7 8 9

Draw the first line beginning at dot 1 and continuing diagonally down and right, pass through dot 5 to reach dot 9.

From dot 9, the second line is drawn upwards, passing through dot 6 and dot 3 to end above dot 3.

The key to solving this puzzle with 4 straight lines joined continuously -- often described as "drawn without lifting the pencil off the paper" -- is to end the second line far enough above dot 3 that the third line drawn diagonally down and left will pass through dots 2 and 4, ending left of and level with dot 7.

Finally, the fourth and last line is drawn horizontally across to the right, passing through dots 7 and 8, ending back at dot 9.

in a line

You start by drawing a line upwards then you draw a line to the right, then draw a line straight down, then draw a line to the left. These 4 lines form a perfect square. To connect the fifth dot you draw a diagonal line from the bottom left corner of the square (where you left off) to the top right hand corner. You then draw a line in a Northwest direction about half the length of the rest of the lines to arrive at the fifth dot. You then draw a line from this dot to the dot at the top left corner of the square.

Press A twince really fast to fly and make the joystick in the upper corner go straight ahead really fast twice.

Drag green down diagonal twice then drag it to the left then up Then drag the brick on up once then connect it to the blue one then left diagonal

Yes it can attack twice

Draw a rectangle with length twice its width, you would have used 4 lines already. Then draw a straight line at the center. The result will be two identical squares.

A straight angle is 180 degrees, or twice the measure of a right angle. Therefore, it looks like a right angle that has been folded out into a flat line. Another way is to look at the arch of a 180 degree angle as a semicircle. Connect both ends of the semicircle and you have a straight line.

There is no need for a combinatorial circuit to multiply a number by two. A binary number, left shifted one place, is twice the original binary number. The specific answer to the question is that you would connect the three input lines to the three high order output line of four output lines, and connect the low order bit of the four output lines to logic 0. If the three input lines were labelled A, B, and C, the output would be A, B, C, and 0.

no they do not. For example, draw two parallel horizontal lines. Make the top one twice as long as the bottom. You can still connect them and they remain parallel sides of a quadralateral.

the answer is twice. the angle of rotation is twice the measure

To draw a shape with five angles, start by drawing a straight line segment as the base. From one end of the base, draw a diagonal line connecting to a point opposite the base. Repeat this step twice, connecting the other end of the base to the remaining two points opposite the base. Finally, connect the remaining open sides of the shape with straight lines to form five angles.

You'll be able to pump twice the volume.
