Puzzle

US Version

There are four types of fussy fish in the tank below. The orange fish dislike the yellow fish, and the yellow fish dislike the blue ones. The blue fish abhor the purple, and the purple fish can't stand the orange. What's worse, no fish can be with another fish of the same color.

Add dividers by drawing straight lines from the notches along the side of the tank without crossing over any fish.

Using just four dividers, can you divide the fish and bring harmony to the tank?

UK Version

There are four types of fussy fish in this tank. The orange fish don't like the yellow, and the yellow fish can't abide the blue. The blue fish abhor the purple, and the purple fish can't stand the orange. To make things worse, no fish gets along with any other fish of the same colour.

You can add dividers to the tank by drawing lines to connect the notches spaced around the rim. Using just four dividers, can you divide the fish into pairs and bring harmony to the tank?

Hints

US Version

Try thinking in terms of the opposite conditions.

For example, you already know that orange fish don't get along with purple fish, yellow fish, and other orange fish. That means they DO get along with blue fish, so you can put orange and blue fish together.

UK Version

US Version

You already know that purple fish will only get along with yellow fish, so it would make sense to arrange the dividers so that a purple fish might be paired up with a yellow fish.

Instead of thinking in terms of who won't get along, think instead about who WILL get along. then start to place your dividers.

UK Version

Yellow fish can only be paired with purple fish.

Instead of thinking about which fish will fight each other, think about which ones will get along and place your dividers accordingly.

Not counting the corner points, connect the third point from the left on the top wall to the third point from the bottom on the right wall.

Next, connect the first point from the right on the top wall to the second point from the bottom on the left wall.

Again, not counting the corner points, connect the first point from the top on the left wall to the fourth point from the right on the bottom wall.

Finally, connect the second point from the top on the right wall to the second point from the left on the bottom wall.


Solution

Incorrect

US Version

Too bad!

It's clear that you must separate the fish that don't get along, but perhaps you need to think along different lines.

UK Version

Too bad.

It's clear that you have to separate the fish that don't get along, but perhaps it's time to try thinking along some different lines.

Correct

Success!

At last the fish will stop fighting one another and the fish tank will be peaceful.
