 Landscape Architect (Posted on 2003-09-27)
You are working as an apprentice to a landscape architect. Your first assignment is to plant some trees in a client's large, flat lawn. Your boss tells you:

"I want you to plant 16 trees in 15 rows. There must be exactly 4 trees in each row."

How should you plant the trees if you want to complete your assignment?

 more trees | Comment 7 of 9 |
I a novice so I can't post new puzzles. Besides this is just a modification.

I thought 15/16 was a good ratio but I wondered if it could be 1 or higher. I found that 24 trees in 24 rows of 4 was possible. A ratio of 1!

I'm sure the ratio could be even higher with more trees per row. Can anyine beet a ratio of 1 for 4 trees per row?
