# You Like It! ~ Then Solve It

Creating Quiz is a very lengthy process here but it is possible to create it. The last quiz took a long time so I thought of creating a quick puzzle.

You can see the puzzle. It is an equation made by placing the natch sticks. But you can find the equation is not correct. The requirement is to solve the equation by moving only one match stick.

There may be more than one solution, Just think about it and post your version of the solution to the equation.

You can only move one stick, Eithied rearranges that, replace that or remove that. But only one stick. Go for it.

• ## How long you took to solve this?

• one minute
• less than one minute

1. 6 – 2 -8 = -4

Is this OK?

1
• Technically it is yes But where you will put the”-” before 4 without moving the 4.

2. I love these puzzles, nice!

always interesting to see the many answers!

• moving one stick, take the bottom of the four and move it to the top of the 4 creating a 0

1
• Yes, this is one of the answers.

1
• 😉 thanks – always fun to play puzzle games.

3. Yet another try. Make 4 into zero by knocking off the tail of the 4 and closing it above to form a zero

6+2-8=0

• Congrats, You got the answer.

1
• Wow!! I was the first one to get it right. I will see if there are other ways. Love such puzzles.

4. Does creating the sign “≠” count? 😀

1
• Technically yes, But better options are available. But you got full points for the try.

1
• You said to try an artistic perspective, haha. But I guess Grace and Doc solved it. ?

1
• Yes, they did it but as I told there are multiple possibilities.

1
• But from where did you pick that match stick to strike the equal sign? ?

1
• Almost any stick would work for that

1
• Brilliant. Well done Ellie

1
• You should see how I “solved” geometry problems in my school years. ?

1
• yes, Just pick from any place except the = sign. ha ha ha

1
• Maths was my favourite subject too.

5. The only options I can think of (as of now)
Change + into x
So: 6×2-8=4

1
• Thanks, That is a great try. But for that, you have two adjust 2 match sticks. Try again and solve it using one Stick

6. Instead of 6 + 2 change the plus sign to multiplication by shifiting one match stick and you get the answer

6 X 2 – 8 = 4

Hope I have go it right.

7. Maybe just a minute. I didn’t detect it with a stopwatch ???
