Finding the right answer will be more difficult than it seems at first glance.

Before solving these problems, it is better to stock up on matches or chopsticks - it will be much more convenient and clear with them.

## – 1 –

Move two matches so that the house faces the other way.

## – 2 –

This spiral consists of 35 matches. Rearrange the four to make three, not necessarily equal, squares.

## – 3 –

Rearrange the three matches so that the cancer crawls down, not up.

## – 4 –

Add eight matches so that you get four equal shapes, repeating the original shape.

## – 5 –

Remove six matches from the grate, without shifting the rest, so that there are three unequal squares.

## – 6 –

Add four matches so as to divide this square into two shapes of the same shape and area.

## – 7 –

Rearrange one match to make the equality true.

## – 8 –

Continue the sequence and replace the question mark with the missing digit.

With each new digit in a row, the number of joints between matches in the figures decreases. The eight have six, the nine has five, the five has four, and so on. According to this principle, one should come after the seven.

## – 9 –

Rearrange four matches to make three, not necessarily equal, squares.
