This puzzle will put your knowledge and analytical skills to the test! The picture of four matchsticks arranged in a plus-sign shape with the red coated heads facing outwards contains a logistical problem that is stumping people left and right. The challenge posed by the image is the following; can you move only one match to make a square?
At first glance it looks simple and seems very straightforward, but once you start to try and solve the puzzle it becomes clear that this is not the easiest puzzle to figure out! The accompanying video that shows the match puzzle gives you less than a minute to try and figure it out before the solution is shown, so if you need more time be sure to pause the clip.
For those of us who can’t seem to come up with the solution, and there will be many people who are baffled by this one, try approaching the puzzle from another perspective. Think beyond the obvious routes you may have already tried to solve it with and focus deeper on any other possible alternative ways to go about making a square.
Good luck and pass it on!
