 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?

 Submitted by Gamer Rating: 3.5000 (6 votes) Solution: (Hide) One solution is to have it look just like a star, but take the horizontal 4 in a row below the point where two lines cross, rather than above it. If you have the points as follows, you will find 2 trees on the inside. A: -12, -7 B: -5,0 C: -4,1 D: -2, 0 E: 0,-1 F: 0,5 G: 2,0 H: 4,1 I: 5,0 J: 12,-7 Line 1 contains A B C F Line 2 contains A E G H Line 3 contains B D G I Line 4 contains C D E H Line 5 contains F H I J
