You have a standard chess board, and as many queens as you need. What is the most queens that you can put on the board so that no two queens can attack each other? What is the formation to put them in?
Keep in mind that a chess board has 64 squares (8x8), and queens can go diagonal, up and down, and left and right.
I came up with 8, thinking like a Knight I started in one corner then up 2 over 1 until I got to the end and carried it over. A8, B6, C4,D2,E7,F5,G3,H1. How's that? Can't be more than 8.
