Since there are no size requirements, it is possible to do it in 6, (without any cutting in half). But those are going to be some unhappy rabbits.

Is the answer correct?
Assuming match size is 1,
so original room space is 1/2.
But the new room space is sqrt(3)/4.

Will rabbits be happy?

Sometimes the wording of these problems are a bit off. Here is another solution that fits in with the wording, though may not be in the spirit of the problem.

I like the optical illusion, but does it actually have anything to do with the problem?

Wouldn't just an entire big square work? 3x4, still uses 12 matches. Plus, the problem didn't say all the rabits couldn't be together.

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



The matches usually tend to be always the same size. The ones in your picture aren't. The ones that are diagonal are longer than the other ones.
