How do you arrange seven match sticks such that each stick touches other six?

2. ## Re: How do you arrange seven match sticks

Solutions:

1) See the answer in the doc.

2) One more soultion is there, but thats not the exact solution.
First group all the match stick and burn it. Then all the sticks will be arranged as per ur condition.

By using these solutions any number of match sticks can be arranged.

from your arrangement I am not sure that each stick is touching the oyter 6.

4. ## Re: How do you arrange seven match sticks

Try this one.
This will meet the condition.

5. ## Re: How do you arrange seven match sticks

ohh no, not enen this time

6. ## Re: How do you arrange seven match sticks

hey, the solution is correct. tell me flaw in the first pic.

7. ## Re: How do you arrange seven match sticks

that only looks like that in 2D, check in 3D,it will definately not .

it doesn't

I think simple answer is to arrange them in star shape where one end of each stick meet at the center of the star so that they will touch other 6 sticks

See, the answer depends upon how we view the match stick ends... if we are treating them as line segments, then definitely STAR shape would give the solution. For 3D, make a Bonfire structure .. out of the matchsticks... 2) take one matchstick as base another as perpendicular, and rest as hypotenuse.....

check this!

hey, take one stick in perpendicular position, put it in the center and at sides take 2 sticks in v shape one over the other and put the opening on the center, do the same on the remaining 4 sticks
