Digital Agent engineers solve complex puzzles for our customers every day. Can you solve the Puzzle we created for you?

You are in charge of hiring security guards and stationing them in a museum to make sure that 100% of the museum can be seen at all times (assume the guards have 360 vision, in other words they can see in all directions from where they are standing). What is the smallest number of guards needed to make this happen?

In the photo below, the purple represents the floor plan and the yellow is an example of the visual field of a guard if he was stationed where the eyeball is.



You can cover the whole floorplan with only 3 guards. The proof is in the picture!
