 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?

Here are pairs of odd and prime numbers formed from the digits 1 - 6. Note that the oddness of a number depends on only its last digit, so the first two are available for play:

125  463                      421  653
125  643                      425  163
145  263                      425  613
215  463                      425  631
