Kashakomin (a.k.a Kash) was jogging in the park, as he did every morning. The morning had been quite uneventful. That was, until he ran past a man sitting on a bench.

On hearing Kash's footsteps, the man looked up. "How would you like to win a little money?" asked the man.

"What do you mean?" asked Kash.

"Just come over here," said the man.

Now, Kash, never liking to turn down an opportunity to win some more 'kash', walked over to the bench.

The man placed seven matchsticks on the bench to form an 8.

"Now, if you can move just one match, can you leave just one square? There can be no leftover lines."

"What? That's ridiculous," said Kash.

But after working on the puzzle for half an hour, Kash finally got the answer, and managed to win a little 'kash' to add to his collection. Can you?

very good but shouldn't he have said to remove one? cuz if he just moved one, it would have been a left over line since you can't really make a 9 with seven matchsticks.

I agree with Rukia that it could have been worded slightly differently, but I still thought it was way cool. But I felt really dumb since I'm working with squares in my math class.

I agree w/ blondebookworm. It would have made a lot more sense if it was worded differently.
