BadDad is not happy. One of his kids, while playing in his office (during an unauthorized break from LEGO training), messed up his handcrafted diorama of planets. The other kids made a crude attempt at fixing the display by placing the planets in two lines of exactly five planets each.


The display had been in an arrangement of five straight lines of exactly four planets each. As punishment, BadDad forces his kids to rearrange the planets in his original layout or face the consequences.

As wee Xerxes sheds a tear he thinks, "Has BadDad lost his mind? How can they be arranged in such a fashion?"
