Rabbit Hutch - Back to the Matchstick Puzzles
In the picture there are little flats for 6 rabbits. Can you build a dwelling for these 6 rabbits with only 12 matches. Each rabbit must have an equally big space.

Edit: 6 separate flats are needed for the rabbits.

All you have to do is make a hexagon and put lines to the center. There, all done!!!

forgive my rudimentary drawing skills using paint. Each line is a matchstick three triangles split down the middle. Twelve sticks, six pens. yes? no?

Also, there is a way to make six identical rabbit pens using only ten matchsticks. Care to try?

What about:

---------*---------*
*	*	*	*	*
|	|	|	|	|
|----+----*----+----*
|	|	|	|	|
|	|	|	|	|
 ---------*---------*

Just 11 matches and you also get two guest rooms!

I don't think that works. Some of the matchsticks would end up shorter than the others (the ones splitting the triangles down the middle, I think). So you end up with 9 matchsticks and 3 sticks of a smaller size.

What about removing the match stick on one side, then joining the two ends together, making a 3D circle with the same hutch design of the original drawing. Is this a legal solution?

Since there is nothing that says you must have 6 separate flats for the rabbits, this works:

wouldn't this also work (provided my drawing skills... or lack thereof, are excused)?
