Restricted Five Coin Sort (Posted on 2016-07-14) Difficulty: 4 of 5
A set of five coins are of differing weights, no two are equal.

Devise a method to sort the coins by weight using only a balance scale, subject to the restriction that only one coin may be placed on each side in each weighing.

Can this be done in the theoretical minimum of 7 weighings?
