Letter: Put to the test

Click to follow
IN THE excerpt from Peter Robinson's new book Snapshots from Hell ('Through hellfire to an MBA', Business, 11 September) he quoted Professor George Cooper asking how thick a single sheet of paper would be if it was folded 32 times.

This is a pointless exercise if ever there was one since no sheet of paper, whatever its size, can be folded in half more than seven times.

I am amazed that the clever professor didn't know this; which he would have done had he used his intuition and actually put his theory to a practical test.
