Can you place the numbers 1 to 8 into the following grid. No two consecutive numbers can be directly next to each other either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
Hint: Where can the 1 go?
The following is one answer, all other answers are a reflection or rotation of this.
If you were to spell out the numbers in full, (One, Two, Three, etc), how far would you have to go until you found the letter 'A'?
Hint: Start counting now.
One hundred nd one. A
Unless you use American English when the answer becomes 1,000 = One thous nd. A
