I'm not trying to trick anybody - this is a serious question.

I don't know how to place the points, but there is a way to do so and this fact was stated by Ulam in one of his books. I think it was "A Collection of

Mathematical Problems". I can't find my copy right now, or I would give you

the page number.

I posted this to see if anybody knows how to do it.

Thanks for your responses.
