    OK, here's alittle "stump the chump" riddle for you to figure out.

    A tree farmer planted 10 trees. He planted 5 rows with 4 trees in each row. How?????


    Ok ok, here is another...

    Draw a tic tac toe board.

    now that you have a tic tac toe board.... placing the numbers 1-9 in each of the blocks (using each number only once) in such an order that the sum of three numbers equals 15 in every which direction (horz, diagn, vert).


    Enjoy!

    I am guessing someone called "He" was not the tree farmer, the tree farmer was someone else. Either that or there were two rows of five trees already.

    for the tic tac toe one...

    2 7 6
    9 5 1
    4 3 8

    for the tree one...
    As each tree grew, the seeds fell into the healthy soil on other rows, eventually growing more trees. the planter planted 10 orginally, but either the roots or the seeds reached over to different rows, growing more trees
