### Rose Puzzle

I've just had a look at this adventure as it's my day off from work and I've been looking for a decent little game to play for a while now and this seems to fit the bill.<br>
The answer to this one seems to be to the number of lines excluding perimeter lines for a regular shape with the stated number of vertices. For example, a square would have four vertices and the answer would be two (the diagonals). A five sided shape (pentagon) would have 5 and a hexagon would have 9. I'll leave you to work out the formula. for an x-sided shape.

I'm still not to sure how to calculate this one (I'm really crap at maths incase you had'nt guessed) So if it says the Rose has 20 vertices how do i work out the peremeter of the shape. I know whats a Mystic Rose looks like but im really none the wiser.

### Rose puzzle

The answer is n(n-3)/2 where n is the number of vertices. So if n = 20 the answer is 20*17 / 2 = 170<br>
btw I've just finished the game so I'll be able to help you out later on if required.<br>
<br>
Good luck!<br>

where can I download or buy a copy of martello tower? I used to play this game at school, some 15 years ago and now I'm becoming a teacher myself I thought it might be a fun way of learning maths for children. Please help.

### Guards

I remember playing this game at school so was well pleased to find it on the BBC Lives! site. What's the deal with those guards though? How do you get them to stop pestering you?
