As you can see in the picture, 20 matchsticks have been used to form five squares. What you have to do is move two of the matchsticks in a manner that seven squares are formed.

Please note that you cannot overlap the matches or break them. The squares can be on any size but they must be closed squares.

It is quite easy to place four coins in such a way that each penny touches every other one. Just place three of them on the table in the form of a triangle so that they touch one another, and then lay the fourth coin on top of this triangle - as shown in the following figure on the far left.

five coins

Now add one more coin and try to do the same thing with five coin - again every coin has to touch every other.
