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?

Ok, so would this be an appropriate way of rewording the problem?

Make 5 straight rows of 4 trees. These lines are 1D and trees exist ON (not next to) these lines and are 0D.

If a tree is on an outer edge of whatever shape you made, it is vulnerable to these vicious squirrels. The tree is not vulnerable if it is on an inner edge (not adjacent to the "outside" world).

If this is the case, I see how my solution doesn't work.
