RAY: This was sent in by Daniel Reiss. An eccentric billionaire decided to interview landscapers for his newly constructed estate. Part of the interview was a simple test. He said:
"Four is my lucky number. So I want every tree and bush and shrub you plant to be in groups of four. Got it? But in addition, I want each of these four things that you plant to be the same distance from one another.
"For example, if you plant four rhododendron, I want them all to be equidistant, i.e., each one is the same distance from each of the other three."
The question is, can it be done?
TOM: The winner this week is Eric Sosman from Auburndale, Massachusetts. Congratulations!
