The Three Rabbits: The History of a mathematical puzzle pattern from c 600 to the present

David Singmaster, mathematician and well-known metagrobologist, discusses the fascinating history of the Three Rabbits mathematical puzzle

The Three Rabbits puzzle is: How can you draw three rabbits, each with two ears, but using only three ears in all? This and related puzzles/pattens have a surprisingly long history which is only now being elucidated. David Singmaster will show some material from a trip to China to investigate, and will mention some related puzzles.

(Some background about the puzzle: www.threehares.net)
