# Merry Christmas from the RiddleDude

“I planted five rows of four Christmas trees each.” The man boasted to his boss. The boss looked at him and said, are you saying you planted 20 Christmas trees in one day? No, the man said, I only planted 10 trees.

How did he do it?

He did it in more than one day

• Dude

ahhhhhhhh …. no.
Try again.

• Rool

The Star of David would work fine as a formation…
Just imagine a tree on every intersection of lines in the Star.

• Rool

Not the Star of David at all!
I always confuse these 2

It’s a five points star with a tree on every angle (or intersection depending on how you draw it)

• Dude

You are correct, Rool.

Draw a normal star. Imagine a tree at every point. There are ten points, but five rows of four, (re-using the trees multiple times of course).

You’re today’s winner!!

Merry Christmas
