Four Colours

Stage: 1 and 2 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

Daniel from Bolney CEP School wrote saying the following and included a picture:

I found out that you had to start with all four colours on one face.  Then I made sure I worked diagonally with the other colours.  This meant that all faces could show all four colours.



Julian from the British School Manila in the Philippines sent in the following solution:

Top face:
R Y
G B

Left face:
R G
Y B

Right face:
Y B
R G

Bottom face:
(imagine you could see through the top)
Y G
B R

Back face:
B R
G Y
