## Puzzle of the Week

The six sons and daughters of King Lok-Tin were aged 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16. Being both keen on maths and eager to speak to them together, he sat them at a round table in such a way that for any two who were sitting next to each other, their ages were either one year or two years apart. How was this possible and in how many different ways?

What about for other numbers of children with consecutive ages?

Answers to Mr Brooks on paper - first correct solution gets a team point.
