Visual Brainteasers 2

So our new series on visual brain teasers continues here with installment #2. Try out these challenges when you have a bit of spare time...I think you'll find them quite enjoyable! 

Coin Pyramid

Take six coins (pennies, quarters, whatever you have...but all must be the same kind of coin) and arrange them in a triangle as shown below. Now, rearrange the coins into a hexagon with just four moves. Every move you make can consist ONLY of sliding one coin to a new location where it touches at least two other coins.

Note: Be careful when sliding coins so you don't push or rearrange other coins unintentionally.  

 

Friends with Rope

For a good challenge, get two pieces of short rope or string (4 feet each should be just fine). Tie the rope/string around you and your friends wrists as shown....and interlocked. Now, see if you can get free from your friend without untying the ropes from your wrists. There is a video below that shows the solution should you need help. I did ;).
