Puzzle #143: Magic 8

This is a simple puzzle, and I hope that the adults will take the pain of showing this to their children. This was contributed to me by my daughter, Arushi, who got this puzzle in her holiday homework. While the puzzle can be solved by some trial and error, would love to see if children can find some method to the madness!

Please see the graphic below. Fill in numbers 1 to 8 in the grid below, such that each of the three numbers on a line add up to 12. Each number appears exactly once.

As always, please send your answers as comments within the blog (preferred), or send an e-mail to alokgoyal_2001@yahoo.com. Please do share the puzzle with others if you like, and please also send puzzles that you have come across that you think I can share in this blog.

Happy weekend!
