Isn't that just a square with an "X" in the middle? Did I get one right?

the square with a cross in the middle works but, i dont think that is what it is getting at... Use the 3-D spoiler as the major clue.

Couldn't you use 6 matchsticks to make a hexagram (Star of David), which is 8 equilateral triangles?

Didn't get this one...

The matches are not the same size, and it does not even have 4 triangles in it!

No, that is pyramid. Tetrahedron has four triangular faces. You may refer here for more info.

You break each stick in half. then the 12 half sticks make 4 equal triangles because each triangle has 3 sides 4x3=12 DUH!

Those are not equilateral, nor do the x matches meet the corners to form triangles.
