Toothpick Triangles

The "Toothpick triangle" is a Geometric puzzle that involves rearranging toothpicks in different forms or shapes using visualization.

For my solution, please see "ATTACHMENT."

This puzzle is quite interesting and easy because you can just visualize the puzzle and draw by the use of "trial and error."

Puzzle Name

How can this field be Evenly Divided?


Description of puzzle solution

Divide the irregular shape into 12 equal parts, this division will represent the area of the field. Since 12 is divisible by 2, each of the two should have six of the 12 parts for them to have equal share of the field.


How the solution was found?

Following the hints from the puzzle gives us the idea of how to divide the field evenly.

Smoke, Rain, or Something else?

Last night it rained. This morning the ground was still wet, and so was our house, our garden, our car, and everything else.  We ate our breakfast as the sun popped out from behind the clouds, and my son observed "smoke" rising up from the wooden gate outside our kitchen window.  It was an interesting phenomenon because, as I reassured him, there was no fire to create the smoke. It appeared to be the standing rainwater evaporating into the air. It didn't seem warm enough for steam. It was very curious, and I am unsure exactly what it was.
