From OG 16:
One wishes to tie a rectangular-shaped package with a rope tied like a cross. 2 of its dimensions are 1.4 and 0.6 inches. To make the tie, one uses 0.2 inches. What is the rope length, in inches, used to tie the package?

I. One of the package's dimensions is 0.2 inches.
II. The package will be tied with the shortest length of rope possible.

I couldn't find it on the forum and I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding the question itself. It says "2 of its dimensions..." - is this referring to the cross? The rope? The package? Even assuming it's the cross/rope, I'm still stuck so any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance

If it were an OG question, it should have been discussed by now.
Still what I can make out of it, the rectangular package should mean a cuboid.. 2 of its dimensions are 1.4 and 0.6... it has to be tied like a cross..
Statement I gives 0.2 as the third dimension..
Statement II gives shortest rope meaning the rope should be tied PARALLEL to the sides

Combined therefore sufficient
C
