Coins to Diamonds


Best Answer Yoruichi-san, 18 February 2013 - 10:42 PM

 

 

Spoiler for No...not what I meant...

Hai! That is yes..5 coins w/ 2 double diamater. Looks like a parallelogram with line in the middle.
OP should say "same coin" but i guess no one use 4 half-cut coins (or bitable coins) to make 8 diameters.

Spoiler for thru manifying lens

 

My angles were more...90 degrees ;).

Sorry if I'm going on a completely different tangent than what the OP intended, to be honest, I'm not sure what the OP intends :lol:, but seeing your response to witzar made me think 'outside the box' (or plane of the box ;)) type solutions were acceptable.

Women are definitely stronger. We are [Fe]males, after all...

Some of what makes me me is real, some of what makes me me is imaginary...I guess I'm just complex. ;P
