Problem of The Week: Due Friday, October 29

You have been hired to supervise 22 4th-graders who are visiting a haunted house at Halloween.  You have a diagram of the house showing the "control booth" where you will be sitting, hidden behind 4 2-way mirrors.  one mirror is one each wall and each mirror looks into 3 rooms.  Mirror 1 looks into rooms A, B, C; mirror 2 looks into rooms C, E, H; mirror 3 looks into rooms F, G, H; mirror 4 looks into rooms A, D, F.  What is a possible arrangement of 22 students within the rooms if you can see 9 students through each of the 4 mirrors?
