 Very easy!!!!!!!!!!draw a star with five edges, without taking the pen from the sheet, so that you get something like an (inner) pentagon with five (outer) triangles attached to the side. If you plant a tulip at each of the vertices of the pentagon and the triangles you get the solution! * * * * * * * * * *
