HOW WOULD YOU SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A KNOT NO ONE COULD UNTIE . . .

THE GORDIAN KNOT WAS A SKILLFULLY TIED KNOT USED BY A PEASANT NAMED GORDIUS. HE USED IT TO TIE THE OX YOKE TO HIS CART.

AS ADVISED BY A DELPHI ORACLE TO BECOME KING, GORDIUS DEDICATED HIS CART AND YOKE TO ZEUS. THE LEGEND SAID THAT THE MAN WHO COULD LOOSEN THE KNOT WOULD BECOME RULER OF ALL ASIA.

IN THE YEAR 333 BC, AFTER MANY FAILED ATTEMPTS, A MIGHTY MACEDONIAN KING CAME TO ASIA. FLANKED BY HIS TROOPS AND ARMED WITH ONE OF HISTORY'S FINEST AND MOST CREATIVE MINDS, ALEXANDER THE GREAT STOOD TRANSFIXED BEFORE THE KNOT. SUDDENLY, A FLASH OF INSPIRATION LIT UP HIS FACE. WITH ONE BOLD AND INNOVATIVE STROKE, ALEXANDER THE GREAT UNTIED THE UNTIE-ABLE. GRASPING HIS SWORD, HE SLASHED THROUGH THE KNOT WITH A SWIFT AND DECISIVE BLOW AND WENT ON TO RULE ASIA.
