People Are Struggling To Solve This Brainteaser In Only Three Moves

Quota user Brian Hoang recently posted a brainteaser involving 12 toothpicks that's wrecking the brains of the entire internet.

The challenge is to turn this four-square pattern into just three squares. The rules? You can only move one toothpick at a time in any manner wish, but you cannot break or modify the toothpicks. 

It might seem impossible, but you'll actually be surprised by how simple it is. If you've given up, or think you have the answer, check out the solution below...

Step 1 one: Take a pick from the top left and place it in the middle to the right of the box. 

Step 2 two: Take another from the top left and begin to form a new square on the far right. 

Step 3 three: Take the pick from the bottom centre square and complete the new square. Easy! 

Now you know how to do, challenge your friends
