Puzzle

US Version

You need to evacuate the neighborhood, and fast! Luckily, you were able to recruit nine friends to help you out:

  • Two whose voices carry for 3 squares
  • Three whose voices carry for 2 squares
  • Four whose voices carry for 1 square

Where should you place each person so that the evacuation message reaches every square in the neighborhood?

UK Version

Greppe asked some acquaintances to help evacuate the entire neighbourhood, but he was only able to recruit nine people:

  • Two whose voices carry three squares
  • Three whose voices carry two squares
  • Four whose voices carry one square

Where should you tell each person to stand so that the evacuation message reaches every street in the neighbourhood?

Hints

US Version

Try to think about how to place your friends so that there is as little overlap as possible (but a little overlap is still OK).

The easiest way to avoid overlap is to place the loudest people first and work from there.

UK Version

Try to think about how to place your volunteers so that there is as little overlap as possible.

The easiest way to avoid overlap is to place the loudest people first and work from there.

US Version

Think of the neighborhood as a grid of 10 columns and 7 rows.

Grab the two people whose voices carry the farthest and place them as follows:

  • In the middle square of the column farthest to the right.
  • Three squares up from the bottom in the column farthest to the left.
UK Version

Here's where to place the two people whose voices carry for three squares:

  • In the centre of the rightmost column.
  • Three squares up from the bottom in the leftmost column.

US Version

Place the three people whose voices carry two squares as follows:

  • In the very top square of the third column from the left.
  • On the second row from the top, fourth column from the right.
  • On the bottom row of the fourth column from the right.

Use the remaining volunteers to fill in the gaps!

UK Version

Place the three people whose voices carry two squares as follows:

  • At the very top of the third column from the left.
  • On the second row from the top, fourth column from the right.
  • On the bottom row of the fourth column from the right.

Now it's just a matter of using the remaining volunteers to fill the gaps.

US Version

If you followed the previous hints, you should be able to complete the puzzle by placing the rest of the volunteers in the remaining spaces.

The last few people may overlap, but don't worry about that. As long as the message gets out to everyone in the neighborhood, the evacuation will be a success!

UK Version

If you followed the previous hints, the rest should just be a matter of trying out different placements for the remaining few volunteers.

Your last few placements might result in some overlap, but don't worry about that. As long as the message gets out to everyone in the neighbourhood, the evacuation will succeed!
