Welcome to this week’s brain teaser!
Today, we’re going to challenge you with a matchstick equation puzzle that only those with a high IQ can solve.
Are you ready to test your problem-solving skills?
We will present you with a matchstick equation, however, it is incorrect.
Your task is to move only two matchsticks to correct the equation, and you only have 20 seconds to do it!
This is not just a test of your mathematical skills, but also your speed and creativity.
Here’s the equation: 4×9=46. Yes, you read it right. This equation, composed entirely of matchsticks, is incorrect.
Your job is to fix it. Remember, you have to move exactly two matchsticks, no more, no less. And you only have 20 seconds to do it.
So, think fast!
We know this task may seem daunting, but don’t worry!
Here are a couple of hints to help you out. First, think about what numbers you can create by moving only a couple of matchsticks.
Second, don’t forget about the multiplication and equals signs – they’re made of matchsticks too!
Did you manage to solve it? If so, congratulations!
If not, don’t worry, here’s the solution: the correct equation is 5×9=45.
You simply need to move the vertical matchstick in the 4 to the right end of the 6 — turning the 4 into a 5 and the 46 into a 45.
Well, there you have it!
