On Friday I posted this puzzle…..
Take five matchsticks and form the figure of a giraffe as is shown in the diagram. Now can you move just one matchstick so that the shape of the giraffe is remained intact but is rotated or reflected?
If you have not tried to solve the puzzle, have a go now. For everyone else, the answer is after the break.
I guess, technically speaking, the answer is ‘no’ because the head is not exactly square. However, if you are not deterred by a small slant, you can do this……
Did you solve it? Any other answers?
