    About 75% of them, or 24?
    (without actually building one, I’m just taking a bit of a punt)

      Not 24.

      You could build one and try it out several times to average things out, or work it out mathematically.

  2. Kerwin says:

    20 (10 in each)

    • iqtrivia says:

      Well done.

      There would be ten in each of the middle two, five in each of the ones outside that, and one on each end.
