10

Very few. We honestly can't recall ever having seen one that did. Although there might have been one that we mistook for an unmated chopstick.

(987 + 13)(6 + 4) x 2 x 5 = 1000 x 10 x 10 = 100000

You make the number "10" with the 9 toothpicks or spell out "ten" with the 9 toothpicks.

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..

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.

Since every square has 4 sides and you only have 10 toothpicks, obviously you can't have the squares be separate. You will need exactly 2 toothpicks to overlap. Once you realize that, there are two shapes that are possible and can be rotated to make a total of 6 different solutions. A straight line (vertical or horizontal): = = = | | | | = = = Or an L-shape (forwards, backwards, and upside-down forwards and backwards): = | | = = | | | = = Sorry that these don't look quite right, the formatting is getting screwed up.

Because if Christians die in God's friendship (without breaking the 10 Commandments) then we become part of a very big family in heaven.

this is just an opinion but you could loosely wrap the egg in tape to provide a soft outer shell, then make a cube out of many, many toothpicks and glue. next place the tape covered egg in the box and add a lining of straw between the egg and the toothpick box. then close the box and use a little tape around the toothpicks to add more of a stable protective cube. on impact, the cube should break open absorbing allot of the fall. the egg will hopefully bounce around a little. (without the bounce, the egg doesn't move at all] the pressure inside the egg will break it...) i hope this helped... idk, just a dumb idea Okay, good idea, but the we are talking about straws, not straw. The straws, along with the toothpicks and glue could make a substantial tinker toy type protective box. Built into a box consisting of two inch squares, a 20" box would have 10 layers of shock absorption Or, build a round ball with the straws and toothpicks to build a Mar's rover type balloon cushion. Of, course with the egg wrapped and suspended inside with the tape.

You could break one in half, making two out of one and then those "2" plus the other 8 equals ten.

The weight of an individual toothpick varies depending on its material, size, and design. On average, a single toothpick usually weighs around 0.6 to 1.2 grams. To weigh 10 grams, you would typically need around 8 to 17 individual toothpicks.

A 10 pound breaking strain is equivalent to approximately 4.5 kilograms.
