More Trees (Posted on 2003-10-30) Difficulty: 2 of 5
After figuring how to plant your 10 trees in 5 rows, the tree keeper walks up to you.

I like your idea, but sometimes I get vicious squirrels that come and steal all the fruit off it...

I am installing some garden path such that it is harmless to humans but will shock squirrels. (This means the squirrels won't pass over it.) Can you place those 10 trees along 5 lines of straight garden path so that there are 4 trees on each garden path and there are some trees on the inside?

How would you arrange the trees this time?

No, just put your diagram down, and draw the lines where there are 5 lines of 4. Now, if the lines are ignored that go through tree X, tree X is on the inside if there are lines that go all around it.

I am a little confused about why people would write down the exact same solution as in another problem, especially when I link to it. It's not that difficult to figure out that THAT'S not the solution I am looking for!
