Try this using game theory

Freakonomics asks us to answer the following standardized test question without knowing what the question is:

Which of the following is the correct answer?
a) 4π sq. inches
b) 8π sq. inches
c) 16 sq. inches

Did you get it right, too? I still got my game.

That was fun. I'm happy to say I got the right answer. Not necessarily using their methodology, but the right answer was obtained.
