Toothpicks with five squares move only two to make seven squares?

Note that the question does not say how the 5 squares are arranged. Let me specify one scenario: ____ |_|_| |_|_| |_| Take the two toothpicks from the upper left corner (the upper-right and the corner right below it will do too) and put them inside one of the remaining squares like a cross +. I can count 7 squares or 8 squares, depending on whether I count the square that contains the + or not. If your question can be more specific about the count of toothpicks, perhaps we can have a better solution. ======================

There are 64 squares on a chess board. Since a chess board is composed of 64 individual squares, you can arrange any 4 of them into a larger square of its own.
