Arranging numbers in a row (Posted on 2008-11-20) Difficulty: 2 of 5
How many numbers, from 1 to 50 (both included) can you arrange in a row (one of each) so that each one, except the first and the last, is the sum or difference of its two neighbours?

Example: 3, 10, 7, 17, 24, 41.

10 = 3+7, 7 = 17-10, 17 = 24-7, 24 = 41-17.

I didn't know how many there'd be, so that's why I wrote it as a recursive procedure, that would just stop when it couldn't go any further.  Did you just add more and more inner loops until no further could be done?
