Your knowledge and analytical abilities will be put to the test by this challenge!
There is a logistical solution with the image of the four matchsticks placed in the shape of a plus sign with their red coated heads facing outward.
It’s challenging because you can only move one match to form a square. Can you manage it?
Although it appears straightforward and simple as a piece of cake at first, it soon becomes apparent that this is not the simplest puzzle to figure out as you begin to try.
You have less than a minute to try to solve the match problem in the attached video before the solution is revealed, so be careful to stop the video if you need more time.
Try tackling the puzzle from a new angle for those of us who are stumped because there will be many others who are stumped by this one.
Consider more options than the apparent solutions you may have previously explored, and concentrate more on any other potential alternate approaches to creating a square.
