# Knights

What is the maximum number of chess knights that you can place on a chess board so that none of them can attack each other in one move?

### Hint

There's something very peculiar about the movement of knights!### Answer

The thing with the movement of the knight is that it always lands on the opposite color, so if you place all the knights on the same color none will attack each other. Hence you can put 32 knights and none will be able to attack another one.Hide Hint Show Hint Hide Answer Show Answer
