A chessboard is balanced on a tack at the center.

How would you place the pieces on any center
of the 1x1 squares to keep the board in balance
if the weights are :Pawn=1 Knight=3 Bishop=3  
Rook =5 Queen=9  King=11

Actually it's just two diagonal solutions. Apply one to x and the other to y.

I just had to adjust one of them, to get a piece in each quadrant.
