 More Trees (Posted on 2003-10-30)
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?

As I mentioned, there is a LONE tree in the center... point (4). All the others, including 1, 9, and 10 would be vulnerable to squirrels.

After I posted my solution, I briefly tried to follow Vicor's thoughts.... well.. he says "arrowhead like", but the rest, I didn't follow.
