# Checker Circle

Arrange twelve checkers in a circle, like they were the numbers on a clock. Pick up one checker and jump over two other checkers, either clockwise or counterclockwise, and put it on the third checker. Using that same methodology, can you create 6 stacks of 2 checkers each?

### Hint

Remember that a stack of two checkers still contains two checkers.### Answer

12 onto 95 onto 8

2 onto 6

4 onto 11

1 onto 10

3 onto 7

That is one possibility. Rotational and reflective symmetry allow for many others.
