(a) 3 matchsticks?

(b) 4 matchsticks?

(c) 5 matchsticks?

(d) 6 matchsticks?

(Remember you have to use all the available matchsticks in each case)

Name the type of triangle in each case. If you cannot make a triangle, think of reasons for it

Answer :

(a) Yes, we can make an equilateral triangle with 3 matchsticks.

(b) No, we cannot make a triangle with 4 matchsticks.

(c) Yes, we can make an isosceles triangle with five matchsticks.

(d) Yes, we can make an equilateral triangle with 6 matchsticks.
