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.

Is this question supposed to have 12 toothpicks to make 4 squares and then move 3 toothpicks to make 3 equal sized squares? Answer depends on the restrictions.

How do you make four squares using thirteen lines?

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.

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.

Sixteen matches has two squares how do you switch four matches to make three squares?

Assuming the sixteen matches are two squares made up of eight matches each. Two matches on top (horizontal), two matches on the bottom (horizontal), two matches on the left side (vertical), two matches on the right side (vertical). Remove one vertical match from each side from both squares. (A total of four matches) in the same row. Place two of the matches horizontally in-between the two squares both on the top and bottom. Then you'll have three squares.
