# Problem #2253

 2253 There are $5$ coins placed flat on a table according to the figure. What is the order of the coins from top to bottom? $[asy] size(100); defaultpen(linewidth(.8pt)+fontsize(8pt)); draw(arc((0,1), 1.2, 25, 214)); draw(arc((.951,.309), 1.2, 0, 360)); draw(arc((.588,-.809), 1.2, 132, 370)); draw(arc((-.588,-.809), 1.2, 75, 300)); draw(arc((-.951,.309), 1.2, 96, 228)); label("A",(0,1),NW); label("B",(-1.1,.309),NW); label("C",(.951,.309),E); label("D",(-.588,-.809),W); label("E",(.588,-.809),S);[/asy]$ $\textbf{(A)}\ (C, A, E, D, B) \qquad \textbf{(B)}\ (C, A, D, E, B) \qquad \textbf{(C)}\ (C, D, E, A, B) \qquad \textbf{(D)}\ (C, E, A, D, B) \qquad \textbf{(E)}\ (C, E, D, A, B)$ This problem is copyrighted by the American Mathematics Competitions.

• Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
• Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
• Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
• Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
• If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
• Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
• Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
