Tile Challenge (Posted on 2007-02-24) Difficulty: 2 of 5
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?

No you cannot reproduce the layout:


1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21 (an odd number)


All prime numbers (other than two) are odd numbers

All odd numbers are, well, odd numbers

an odd number + an odd number = an even number

1) cannot be correct given that the tiles are arranged in two rows
