How do you make 8 squares with 12 toothpicks?

[The answer will depend on how exactly you count your squares (for instance, there are arguably 10 squares in the solution below, not 8) and whether there are any rules about how to lay the toothpicks down.] A possibility is just to make two big squares using four toothpicks each, and to divide each into four smaller squares using the four remaining toothpicks.

How do you use 10 toothpicks to make 3 congruent squares?

Since every square has 4 sides and you only have 10 toothpicks, obviously you can't have the squares be separate. You will need exactly 2 toothpicks to overlap. Once you realize that, there are two shapes that are possible and can be rotated to make a total of 6 different solutions. A straight line (vertical or horizontal): = = = | | | | = = = Or an L-shape (forwards, backwards, and upside-down forwards and backwards): = | | = = | | | = = Sorry that these don't look quite right, the formatting is getting screwed up.

How do you make an egg slam projesct only using drinking straws toothpicks masking tape and glue and it has to be less than 20inches by 20inches from a 10 ft drop?

this is just an opinion but you could loosely wrap the egg in tape to provide a soft outer shell, then make a cube out of many, many toothpicks and glue. next place the tape covered egg in the box and add a lining of straw between the egg and the toothpick box. then close the box and use a little tape around the toothpicks to add more of a stable protective cube. on impact, the cube should break open absorbing allot of the fall. the egg will hopefully bounce around a little. (without the bounce, the egg doesn't move at all] the pressure inside the egg will break it...) i hope this helped... idk, just a dumb idea Okay, good idea, but the we are talking about straws, not straw. The straws, along with the toothpicks and glue could make a substantial tinker toy type protective box. Built into a box consisting of two inch squares, a 20" box would have 10 layers of shock absorption Or, build a round ball with the straws and toothpicks to build a Mar's rover type balloon cushion. Of, course with the egg wrapped and suspended inside with the tape.

How much yarn to crochet a gueens size blanket in granny square patteren?

First you have to determine what weight yarn you will be using and which hook. Then you need to determine how many squares you need. Here is a suggested number of squares from my own website Crochet Cabana, based on size of squares.Queen: 60" x 80"Using 6" squares: 10 x 13 (good- 60" x 78" plus edging) [130 squares], 10 x 14 (best, 60" x 84" plus edging) [140 squares]Using 9" squares: 7 x 9 (best, 63" x 81" plus edging) [63 squares]Using 12" squares: 5 x 7 (60" x 84" plus edging) [35 squares]Now that doesn't answer your question. You want to know how much yarn you need, so what you might do is make ONE square with a similar weight yarn and see how much yarn that takes. Make the square then rip it out and measure yardage. Then multiply that amount by the number of squares you need. That will tell you approximately how much yarn to get.If you are making an afghan with squares of different colors or with each square having multiple colors you will have to account for that in your planning.If you want to make an afghan in just one big granny square, the swatch should give you a pretty good idea if you are using one color for your afghan.
