Solution Step 0/0

Six squares can be seen in this matchstick arrangement. Just two matchsticks have to be moved to get 7 squares.

What are those two matchsticks which have to be moved?


The two moved matchsticks are initially both horizontal ones as is shown in the diagram. As a result 6 small squares and 1 big square are obtained.

Check Both horizontal
Check 1 horizontal and 1 vertical
Check Both vertical
