Remove one of the outer toothpicks and one of the dividers of two squares. there you have two SQUARES .

impossible u would have to move 4 lines

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.

If you are talking about a triangle it has two. Squares have four.

All squares have two pairs of parallel lines. That's four lines, but they are not all parallel to each other.

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.

No because a rectangle is parallel lines and a square is four right angles.

like a tic tac toe board.

A square has four; a pentagon has five.

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.

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.)

Once completed, this sculpture looks like a Christmas tree. Chop out eight squares on the top of the grid from both sides so only the middle square is left untouched. Then chop out seven squares on both sides. Chop out another seven squares on both sides. This will leave three squares untouched, both times, in the middle of the grid. Next, chop out six squares on both sides, then another six squares. This will leave five squares untouched in the middle both times. Then chop out five squares on both sides, then, once again, another five squares. This will leave seven squares untouched in the middle of the grid both times. Then chop out four squares on both sides, two times. This will leave nine squares untouched in the middle of the grid. Then chop out three squares two times from both sides. This will leave eleven squares untouched in the middle of the grid both times. Then chop out only two squares on both sides. This will leave thirteen squares untouched in the middle of the grid. Then, on the bottom of the grid, chop out seven squares on both sides, leaving three squares untouched in the middle of the grid and you're done!

Old one. Make a square out of four squares, then remove two adjacent inside toothpicks. This leaves a large square with a small square inside.

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.

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.

No indeed, but every square is a rectangle. Rectangles have four sides like squares, but they don't have all sides congruent to one another. All rectangles do not possess the same symmetrical lines as squares.

There is no solid shape with exactly four squares and no other faces.

Yes. Those trapezoids with four right angles are called squares. Since in order to be a trapezoids, a shape must be a quadrilateral with with one set of parallel lines, and a square fits those requirements. In conclusion, the trapezoids that have four right angles are squares.

There are no four-digit perfect squares that are palindromes.

Unless the rectangle is a square, it only has two lines of symmetry. Please refer to the Related Link below to see diagrams of both rectangles and squares with lines of symmetry drawn. The images are near the bottom of the page.

No. Although squares are always rectangles, rectangles are not always squares. A square has four sides of equal length and four right angles. Rectangles must only have four right angles.

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. Just move 3 sticks from any square to form a straight vertical or horizontal line up of squares is one option if there is no restrictions other than the three resulting squares are equal sizes.

U turn a square into four squares by making a plus sign

False. All squares are rhombuses, but not all rhombuses are squares. A square is a parallelogram with four congruent sides and four right angles. A rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides, but it doesn't necessarily have to have right angles.

Rectangles and squares are quadrilaterals, or a polygon* with four sides. Rectangles have two sets of parallel** sides. Squares have four sides of equal length and four right angles*** for the corners. Rectangles and squares are not the same thing. * Polygon- a closed figure with straight sides. ** Parallel- two lines, that no matter how far they stretch, will never meet each other. *** right angles- a 90 degree angle.
