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 key here is that the rows of trees don't have to be parallel, and the trees don't need to be evenly spaced in each row, as long as they form a straight line.

By planting them according to the star-in-star shape shown, you can easily achieve what was asked of you.
