In the illustration eighteen matches are shown
arranged so that they enclose two spaces, one just twice as large as
the other.
Can you rearrange them :
(1) so as to enclose two foursided spaces, one exactly three times as
large as the other, and
(2) so as to enclose two fivesided spaces, one exactly three times as
large as the other?
All the eighteen matches must be fairly used in
each case; the two spaces must be quite detached, and there must be no
loose ends or duplicated matches.
