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.



Answer

[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.

It was pointless telling us what a nickel and a dime is if we cant use them (well I cant anyway)

Okay, I am such a doofus! I could just use a 5p and 10p coins.

yeah, it probably looked something like this:

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

but the upward diagonal has 0 cents.
