3 in a row = bad (Posted on 2006-04-26) Difficulty: 4 of 5
For n=3,4,5,6,7,8 find:

a) The minimum number of counters that need be placed on a nxn chessboard such that no additional counters can be placed without creating any straight line of 3;

b) The maximum number of counters that can be placed on a nxn chessboard such that no three lie in a straight line.

Remember that positions like A1, B3, and C5 are in a straight line.
(Try to continue the sequences if you can)
