The trick to making shapes with a certain number of lines is to allow the shapes to share lines between each other. You also have to make sure that you aren't letting them share too many lines; in fact, to get thirteen lines for squares, you'll need to share three lines (technically called segments in mathematics). One way to do this is to simply draw a rectangle and sketch three lines between it.

Using the first four lines, draw a square. Now use the next two lines to bisect the square both horizontally and vertically. You now have one square divided into four smaller squares. Use the last two lines to diagonally bisect two of the four smaller squares. There you go.

Not a clue. The correct answer is to take away a square. Since it requires 4 lines to make a square in the first place. Bam, just take away one of the squares. Pretty simple.

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 are squares and rectanglest different?

Squares and rectangles are both made with four lines joined at right angles.The difference between a square and a rectangle is:all four lines of the square are exactly the same length as each other.the rectangle has two lines the same that are opposite each other but a different length than the other set of two lines that are also opposite each other.

Show photo how to divide squares into fourths?

Draw diagonal lines to form a diagonal cross in each square, so dividing all the squares into four triangles in each. A pencil and a straightedge is all that is needed, no measuring to form vertical and horizontal lines to divide each square into four smaller squares is required. Can't show a photo or graphics in Answers, I believe.

What are the differences between squares and rectangles?

All squares are rectangles. A rectangle is a four-sided figure consisting of two sets of parallel lines, and all interior angles are 90 degrees. Squares are rectangles with the added characteristic that all four sides are of equal length. (In both cases all four angles are also the same: 90 degrees.)
