1. ## Aliens have landed III

Jezza Bear is in a mood again...

After discovering where the aliens live and building the crashed spacecrafts key he has looked at the console and has found six coloured triangles and a strange set of instructions......"GGGGRRRRR ...These aliens like geometry, I hate it"

Can you help Jezza Bear decipher the code and arrange the triangles as per the instructions, this will calibrate the guidance system!!!!

Hmm...

Hmm...

I had a word with Jezza Bear this afternoon and he has agreed that you should all know what he reckons.

The guidance system in the alien craft is hexagonal in shape and he reckons that these shapes fit in it! He realises that the arrows may not be the way we as humans know them as, but he reckons they maybe the way they somehow touch each other, he just hasn't worked it out yet!

I hope this helps?

I think we might be looking at something like this...

Sadly not, the triangles have to stay the same shape and cannot be changed.

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> The angles of my triangles are 120,30,30.......just think what the internal angles of a hexagon are!!!</span hide>

Jezza,

Yes please! I've given some thought to this one but have arrived at several dead ends.

Hi Rob

Now this is one of those puzzles I regretted slightly after I posted it the first time as I felt I had not given enough clues or cross references. The secret was to work out that the triangles formed a hexagon. There are many ways create a hexagon and one of my clues eluded to the 120 degrees to hopefully get you to think about how it could be formed.

The secrets are as follows:

The NorthSouth Arrows mean - Colours do not touch
The EastWest Arrows mean- Colours touch along long edge
The lightning arrow means- Colours touch along short edge

Nice concept, Jerry! I was unable to divine the secret. The difficult part about puzzle creation is to give just enough info. I often don't get this bit right.
