How can you plant nine straight rows of trees with three trees per row such that nine trees are planted in total?
Arrange 7 points equally around a circle (about 51.42857 degrees apart). Join straight lines connecting each pair that is 154.2857 degrees apart, making a 7-pointed star. At each intersection, including the points of the star, plant a tree.
