## 15 Cents

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #33798 Fun: (2.71) Difficulty: (1.56) Category: Logic Submitted By: calmsavior

On a piece of paper, make a 3x3 grid with squares that are 1 inch long. Next, get three nickels and three dimes. Can you place the six coins in the squares such that each row, column, and diagonal each have 15 cents? Only one coin is allowed per square.

For those who don't know American currency, a nickel is 5 cents and a dime is 10 cents.

[N][E][D]
[D][N][E]
[E][D][N]

N = nickel (5 cents)
D = dime (10 cents)
E = empty

All other solutions are reflections or rotations.

 Pizzazz2u Nov 02, 2006 You have 2 different combinations, but it is a quicky! scallio Nov 02, 2006 No problemo! Quick, fun, entertaining... thanks! Question_Mark Nov 03, 2006 It was pointless telling us what a nickel and a dime is if we cant use them (well I cant anyway) Question_Mark Nov 03, 2006 Okay, I am such a doofus! I could just use a 5p and 10p coins. cowman12 Nov 05, 2006 Fun, Entertaining, and Quick! I really liked it. Punk_Rocker Nov 07, 2006 Fun, but really easy. I liked it. irar1792 Nov 10, 2006 i found another solution, but one diagonal would be 0 calmsavior Nov 12, 2006 yeah, it probably looked something like this: [D][N][E] [N][E][D] [E][D][N] but the upward diagonal has 0 cents. jsdodgers Jan 18, 2007 Fun, but WAY too easy colours Feb 05, 2007 Coolness! Loved it! McBobby1212 Mar 01, 2007 i didn't bother to use a paper and coins,so it made it hard for me because i could figure out that there were empty squares xdbtcp Sep 01, 2009 NDE END DEN
