Date: 9/1/96 at 12:14:1 From: Anonymous Subject: Pyramid Problem Okay, I have a problem that I have worked on all day long. The problem is as follows: You have a pyramid (1 circle on the top layer, 2 on the second, 3 on the third and 4 on the fourth) and you can only move three circles (to make it the same way but upside down). I have only figured it out by moving four. I hope you can help me. Carly Guidry
