Two Moves
Q Can you change two rows of Xs into a circle by moving only two of the Xs?

Go from this:

X   X   X

X   X   X
to this:
X   X
X             X
     X    X
by moving only two Xs.

Hint:Try it by using pennies. But remember, you can move only two of the pennies. The others stay exactly where they are!

A Move the X at the right in the top row and the X in the middle of the bottom row to the position of the bottom two Xs in the circle
