[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.

yes

To solve this, you simply have to put the toothpicks in the shape of a 1 and a 0 to make "10"

You make the number "10" with the 9 toothpicks or spell out "ten" with the 9 toothpicks.

arrange them like the Chrysler logo

form triangles side by side

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.

Check out the link. Any of those shapes, except the square, works.

A sort of triangle of squares. Lay out 3 squares side by side using 10 matches. Take the middle match from the bottom row and use it and the other two to make a square based on the middle match of the top row.

You could make 5 rectangles with 10 squares

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.

Toothpicks as we all know are relatively light, so I would guess maybe 5-10 grams? maybe?

10 x 10 = 100 different squares

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.

If the grid is 10 by 10 or 100 squares, then 2/10 would be 20 squares.

Depends on the units used for 10 by 10: centimetres or inches or some other unit.

There are an infinite amount of numbers that that have squares between 10 and 65

there are 10 squares if you count 100

A square has 4 angles, so ten squares have 10*4 = 40 angles.
