The Six Coin Circle Problem
Here's a great puzzle to try yourself - and then when you solve it you can try it on your friends!
You have to start with six coins
arranged like this...
...and finish with them arranged
in a circle like this:
- You must slide ONE coin at a time
- When a coin is moved it must end up touching two other coins.
- You have a maximum of THREE moves
- While moving a coin you may not push other coins aside - the diagram shows what we mean!
