Landscape Architect (Posted on 2003-09-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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?

The Devil with ye!

The correct pattern is to arrange the trees in a pentagon within a pentagram within a pentagram with a lone tree in the center of it all. This will of course make the inner trees very close together and the outer trees far apart and make me seriously doubt the artistry of our landscape architect, but we will certainly have fifteen rows of four!
