 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?

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