 Tile Challenge (Posted on 2007-02-24)
I have six tiles numbered 1 to 6. Each is a different shape, (triangle, circle, square, pentagon, hexagon and octagon) and painted a different color (red, orange, blue, yellow, green and purple.)
I arranged the tiles in two rows of 3. Given that

1) The top row formed an odd number and the bottom row a prime number
2) In the bottom row the colors were in reverse alphabetical order.
3) The Blue Number 1 was between the orange tile and the Circle;
4) The Hexagon was directly above the Red triangle numbered 4.
5) One tile has a color and shape beginning with the same letter.

Can you reproduce the layout?

With the "missing information" -- that the shapes on the bottom row are also in reverse alphabetical order -- the following layout should be the solution:

Top Row:
Orange Hexagon  numbered 2
Blue   Square   numbered 1
Yellow Circle   numbered 5
Bottom Row:
Red    Triangle numbered 4
Purple Pentagon numbered 6
Green  Octagon  numbered 3
