Four Squares from Five

Toothpick Trick Nº 3

In this puzzle you start with 5 small squares configured as shown in the illustration.

Explain to your companion that their mission is to turn those 5 squares into 4 squares, all the same size, using all of the matches which are there -- less two, which are to be removed.

4 from 5 - the pink and blue matches mark the new locations to solve the puzzle.

The solution, you can see comes from moving one of the matches which formed the top of the upper right square, and the bottom of the lower center square, to form a new upper square over where the lower center square was to start with.

The cocktail puzzle

Toothpick magic trick#4

In this puzzle you arrange 4 matches to look like a cocktail glass, and the head of a match, or some other small piece is used to be the "cherry" or "olive" inside the glass.

The object of this puzzle is, without touching the cherry, to get the cherry outside of the glass by moving just two of the matches.

The solution is to slide the "bottom" of the glass over half-way to the right, and move the left side of the glass to the lower right side, to "turn the glass up-side-down". The cherry, unmoved, is now outside the glass.

For the next puzzle --- When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
