POW 12THE BIG KNIGHT SWITCHPROBLEM STATEMENTFor POW 12 I am asked if four knights two black and two white can switch places while perpendicular to each other meaning two black knights are on one side of a 3x3 chess board with two white knights adjacent to them They were feeling restless and decided to attempt to see if this were possible Keeping in mind the following guidelines No two pieces can occupy the same square Knights can pass or jump over each other The can only move two square forward and one to the right or one forward and two to the right Nothing is mentioned about proper turns ie white first then black then whiteetcWith those guidelines I was set to attempt to find if it were possible for the knights to switch places with each other following only the guidelines abovePROCESSIn first approaching this POW I reviewed for what it was exactly this POW was asking for making a clear mental image of the POW embed itself into my mind After carefully re-reading the POW and its guidelines I had a somewhat solid idea of how to approach it I first made a custom 3x3 chess board and included the chess pieces two black and two white I placed each in their appropriate sections and proceeded to attempt to solve the problem I calculated it to take each piece a minimal of four moves to reach the other side of the board so I instantly knew I would require 16 boxes for my diagram But rather then going through that process I decided to take a much easier one that being by simply drawing a 3x3 chess board with the chess pieces After completing it I began by simply plotting the points and attempting to figure out the process through which I would go through to solve this POW I was quickly amazed when I found the answer only minutes after originally starting
