Once upon a time, there was a kingdom ruled by a wise king. The king had two sons, one was named Math and the other was named Geometry. Math was a simple, kind hearted boy who loved to help others and solve puzzles. Geometry, on the other hand, was a little more competitive and liked to solve difficult math problems.

One day, the king gave a challenge to his sons. He asked them to figure out how to construct a conicoid, which is a three-dimensional figure made up of four parts: a cone, a parabola, an ellipse, and a hyperbola. Math and Geometry were both determined to be the first to solve the problem and solve it correctly.

Math went to work on the conicoid with a pencil, paper, and a ruler. He tried to make sense of the different shapes and figure out how to combine them to create the conicoid. After several hours of hard work, Math was still no closer to solving the problem.

Meanwhile, Geometry was having a much easier time of it. He was using a tool called a compass, which allowed him to quickly draw arcs of circles. He was able to figure out the correct measurements and draw the correct shapes for the conicoid very quickly.

After several hours, both Math and Geometry had successfully constructed the conicoid. The king was very pleased with his sons’ efforts and rewarded them both with a warm embrace.

The moral of the story is that sometimes you can use simple methods and tools to solve complex problems. Math used a pencil, paper, and a ruler and Geometry used a compass—both methods worked effectively to solve the conicoid challenge.
