THE CARD FRAME PUZZLE.





(Problems Concerning Games.)
In the illustration we have a frame constructed from the ten playing
cards, ace to ten of diamonds. The children who made it wanted the pips
on all four sides to add up alike, but they failed in their attempt and
gave it up as impossible. It will be seen that the pips in the top row,
the bottom row, and the left-hand side all add up 14, but the right-hand
side sums to 23. Now, what they were trying to do is quite possible. Can
you rearrange the ten cards in the same formation so that all four sides
shall add up alike? Of course they need not add up 14, but any number
you choose to select.
