## kings problemK(n), can be placed on an n × n
chessboard. For n = 8, the solution is 16. The general solution
is K(n) = ¼n ^{2} if n
is even and K(n) = ¼(n + 1) ^{2}
if n is odd. The minimum number of kings needed to attack or occupy
all squares on an 8 × 8 chessboard is nine. ## Related category• GAMES AND PUZZLES | ||||||
