### Brain Teasers

# 15 Cents

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

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.

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

### Hint

The three nickels will be arranged on the same line.### 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.

You have 2 different combinations, but it is a quicky!

No problemo!

Quick, fun, entertaining... thanks!

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.

Fun, Entertaining, and Quick! I really liked it.

Fun, but really easy. I liked it.

i found another solution, but one diagonal would be 0

yeah, it probably looked something like this:

[D][N][E]

[N][E][D]

[E][D][N]

but the upward diagonal has 0 cents.

[D][N][E]

[N][E][D]

[E][D][N]

but the upward diagonal has 0 cents.

Fun, but WAY too easy

Coolness! Loved it!

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
