A rope and coins are arranged as shown below. As you pull the ends of the rope out to the left and right, the rope will draw taut and push the coins to either side.
Assuming you only get to keep the coins that end up on the top half of the rope, how many coins will you have?
Be patient and work steadily toward finding a solution.
You'll gather up nine coins when the rope is pulled taut. It's really quite a simple puzzle, but following every coin's path does take quite a bit of time.
