How about a diamond with a cross in the center?

the only problem with that is the question says move one match.

it's impossible to get 4 actual triangles with the current setup, so the only way to get 4 is to actually make a 4.



that doesnt work at all because it says to move one match stick

the point is, it's just a little fun. don't over work yourself over it. it's supposed to make you say "ooohh i get it! haha that's funny." :)

It's an old trick. :P

but identical... its not really identical if you have only one triangle and all "4 triangles" refer to the same one
