Could you separate the lines so that 11 matches could be seen?

Great job maryana14. However, am I the only one who sees 17 squares (instead of 15 requested)? Can you see the square which has each side 3/4 of a match long?

Ack, for some reason my first post didn't go through.

I enjoyed your site so much I had to register, I found it through the little google gadget thingy.

I actually see 17 squares, unless I missed a rule.
