Years ago when I was a student, a group of us were listening to the radio when the announcer posed a little mathematical puzzle to which he presumably expected a phonecall from a fairly numerate listener with the correct answer within a couple of minutes. The puzzle was this: "A goat is tethered by a rope 10 metres long to the edge of a circular field of grass. He can eat exactly half the grass in the field. What is the radius of the field?" By the time we had been playing with it for the rest of the evening, we came to the conclusion that the problem emphatically wasn't trivial, though we did eventually come up with an iterative solution that converged to the right answer - and it seems to me that this Venn diagram problem is a rather more complicated version of that little conundrum. If so, it might take a little longer to script than you think!
