The coding challenge implicitly asks for a brute-force search based solution?

It also seems to assume that it's a straight line or at least a one-dimensional space - a curve is certainly a line. If it's not a straight line, then there isn't sufficient information to solve the problem in two dimensions.

Overall, this problem sounds an awful lot like a variant of the 8 Queens puzzle.
