Maths prize for 15 July 2016: Treasure Island

Captain Bluebottle has buried his treasure on Triangle Island, and the secret message says only that the treasure is in the exact centre of the island. Where is that?

There are a number of possible alternative answers, and you get a Freddo for each good answer which comes with good reasoning about why that could be the right “centre”. So, this time, not only no limit on the number of individuals can win, also no limit on the number of prizes each individual can win.

Answers to Mr Adebayo, Mr Osborn, or Mr Thomas by: Friday 15 July.
