Can you make the pyramid point the other way by moving only three coins?

The image above shows a pyramid composed of 10 coins: 4 coins, then 3, then 2, then 1.

Your task is to make the pyramid point the other way by moving
*only* three coins.

In the image above, that means you want the pyramid to be pointing to the left.

With a figure, if the initial pyramid is

```
O O O O
O O O
O O
O
```

you have to make it look like

```
O
O O
O O O
O O O O
```

Again, only moving 3 coins.

The purpose of the puzzle is not for you to find a loophole in the instructions.

Give it some thought!

It is easier to *show* you the solution than it is to explain it to you,
but what you want to do is take the three corner coins and “move them to the opposite side”:
