Put two toothpicks per side on one square. On the other square use one toothpick per side. You will get two squares out of twelve toothpicks.

This can be done in 3D. Place four toothpicks in a square shape on a flat surface. Take a further two toothpicks and place them in such a way that they for an upward triangle on two adjacent sides of the square on the floor. Take a further two toothpicks and do the sam on the other adjacent side. Take the last remaining toothpick and joint the two triangles. You have now created three equally sized squared in 3D

# Make a plus sign with 4 toothpicks. # Make a large square around the plus sign with the remaining toothpicks (2 toothpicks per side) You now have 4 small squares inside 1 large square... total of 5 squares.

A square has 4 sides therefore 3 squares from 12 toothpicks will simply be three unconnected squares

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

You arrange 12 toothpicks into a large square, subdivided into four squares : 2 toothpicks on each side and four more, one each from the middle of the sides to the center of the large square. Now you have four (small) squares. Take away 2 adjacent toothpicks from the ones in the center, and you have 2 squares : one remaining small one and the large one that has the small one inside it.

Start with a 2x2 square (that uses 8 toothpicks) Use the other two to make a 1x1 square in one of the corners of the big one..

make three squares and overlap them so that two of them meet in the center of the third square, making four smaller squares in the center

Make one square out of four toothpicks and then make another square using one of the sides of the first square and the remaining three toothpicks. It is easy. Make a square out of four toothpicks. Put three toothpicks around one of the bottom corners of your first square to form a second square. IGNORE THE LINES LOOK AT THE NUMBERS! 1__2 3__4__7 ___5__6

Yes, if a generic square is made, and a toothpick along the vertical and horizontal line of symmetry, and then another generic square. 18 is enough to form it, and so is any double-digit number.JK they cant share any. But maybe, if you use more than toothpicks

Using 8 of the toothpicks, make a square with two on each side. Using another two, make a smaller square in one corner of the first. Using the remaining two, make a cross in the middle of the second square. One large square on the outside, one medium square inside it and four small squares formed inside that, for a total of six.

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.

the answer is 24

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. ======================

break the toothpicks and you've doubled your amount of toothpicks

24 toothpicks.

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. This larger "square" would be a 2x2 square. With this type of progression and with a mix of configurations there are 204 "squares" (as opposed to "spaces") on the board beginning with the single square space up to the single large square of the entire board itself. This is the mix: 1 8x8 square 4 7x7 squares 9 6x6 squares 16 5x5 squares 25 4x4 squares 36 3x3 squares 49 2x2 squares 64 1x1 squares
