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?

Putting a pentagram with a tree inside another pentagram is the key to this problem.

Due to the improper spacing, some rows aren't linear, but these would be if the diagram was drawn correctly. This diagram just shows the basic idea of where verything is.
