Tricky PuzzleYou have a pentagon with three circles on each side. One on each corner and one in the middle. With a total of 10 circles. You need to put in a number 110 into each circle and you cant reuse any numbers. Each side needs to add up to the same sum. I read somewhere that the 4 possibilites make the sums of 14, 16, 17, 19. I solved the one for 14 but cant do the others. Any answers would be appreciated. #2 20051013 17:34:57
