Triangle man

Question

Posted · Report post

triangle-man-thumb.gif
Six coins make the Triangle Man shown in the illustration.

The coins form three identical equilateral triangles as shown with the dotted lines.

Rearrange the coins into another shape with three equilateral triangles, each with a different size.

You may only move one coin at a time so that in its new position it touches at least two other coins.

Isn't it given that "You may only move one coin at a time so that in its new position it touches at least two other coins.So i think the answer is correct.

but the OP says: You may only move one coin at a time so that in its new position it touches at least two other coins. the bottom coins do not touch two other coins

"Its" and "it" refers to the moved coin isnt it?
