# Can you solve the Four Triangles puzzle in 10 seconds? There is a VERY clever solution

THIS HARD riddle will require a little lateral thinking to solve.

The brain teaser posted on TikTok presents you with six matchsticks arranged in two triangles placed side by side.

Players are then prompted by the user to “move a stick to form four triangles”. freddie19611who uploaded the clip.

The puzzle has an easy solution – but to get there you’ll have to think outside the box.

In his video posted in October 2021, freddie19611 shows viewers the quick and easy fix.

Instead of creating four separate triangles, the answer is to create the expression “4 triangles”.

Take the right side of the left triangle and rotate it clockwise about 45 degrees.

Instead of the triangle, the number “4” should remain.

That means the couple now reads “4 Dreieck” together – a somewhat cheeky solution to the original task.

It’s not the only devilish riddle making the rounds on TikTok.

On Tuesday we showed you a brain teaser that presented you with a grid of nine dots arranged in a square made up of three lines of three.

To beat it you need to connect each point with three straight lines drawn with a pencil or pen.

The highlight is that you cannot lift your writing instrument from the page at any point.

That makes it all but impossible unless you use some cheeky (or ingenious) trick.

And last week we covered an emoji brain teaser that asks you to solve an equation using the solution of three equations filled in for you.

It’s a simple algebraic problem that’s a lot trickier than it looks.

The riddle has been making the rounds on social media in the past and was recently shared on TikTok by a passing user @puzzlegame21.
