Fill in the numbers 1-6 in each circle so that the sum of the three numbers on each side are equal.

The sum of the three sides is either even, or odd. Even: e + e + e e + o + o Odd: o + o + o o + e + e Fill in the numbers 1-6 in each circle so that the sum of the three numbers on each side are equal.

Even: e + e + e e + o + o Odd: o + o + o o + e + e Fill in the numbers 1-6 in each circle so that the sum of the three numbers on each side are equal.

Even: e + e + e e + o + o Odd: o + o + o o + e + e = 2+4+6 = 12 Fill in the numbers 1-6 in each circle so that the sum of the three numbers on each side are equal.
