    Algorithm solution

    Hi all,

    I got a problem to solve - hope anyone can help...

    We have 6 circles. Each circle splited into 8 slices. Each slice has its own color.

    I should build a peramide in the following structure:

    o
    oo
    ooo

    With the following condition:
    The color of touching slices must be identical

    The output should be arrangment according to the root colors (it changes when I rotate the root).


    Thanks!

    The pyramid structure should be (ignore the dash):
    ---o
    --oo
    -ooo

    Seems trivial if each slice has a unique color.

    Look into graph coloring algorithms. You can represent the pyramid as a graph where each slice is a vertex and adjacent slices are connected by an edge. Your exact problem seems somewhat different from graph coloring, but it is quite similar.
