Re: Four Color Theorem!


Hey! So it's the Four Color Theorem which says that any map can be colored with four colors without any two colors touching. If you noticed, Idaho and Oregon are fighting over a can of red paint because they both have to be red to be four-colored. Alaska and Hawaii are crying together because it doesn't matter what color they are . Please vote!

If you made California green, Oregon yellow, and Idaho red doesn't that negate the need to fight?

(Sorry, I'm such a pacifist.)

Well, that's true. However, you wouldn't have two cute states grappling over a can of red paint .

Or Idaho becomes yellow and Montana becomes green since Washington and Idaho never touch. This allows Oregon to claim red. You could let Alaska and Hawaii be stripes.
