The lady had a 12 matchstick as a two digits of number 12, the digit 1 had 2 matchstick, the digit 2 had a 5 matchstick – so she had only 7 matchstick, if she took away one of them the reaming will be 6 pieces to make one digit of number 9

DOES SHE SEE 9 MATCHSTICKS? AFTER TAKING AWAY ONE FROM 12 MATCHSTICKS.PUZZLE SAYS SHE CAN SEE 9. IT DOESNT SAYS 9 MATCHSTICKS, IT COULD BE 9 AS SOMETHING ELSE. I HOPE MY ANSWER IS RIGHT IF NOT KEEP ON THINKING FOR THE RIGHT ONE.

There are actually 11 matchsticks remaining, but they are arranged in a way to form number “NINE”. So she sees 9 in front of her. Hope it’s clear now 🙂

When she took away the one – means the previous 12 sticks, now 11 is not in front of her as she is away from them. and the new place where she is not had 8 matchsticks + 1 he took there = 9.

I think a jinn took it

realy i dont know pleas e answer

NINE

IX

XII

One taken

Remaining is IX

She wrote in words N I N E which consumed 11 match sticks. N=3, I=1, N=3, E=4. Total 11.

Look if write (11) XI in roman then if is going to represent in this way, if you read from right to left then it represent (9) in roman.

The matchsticks are kept in this way |\| | |\| E|. If she takes away the last matchstick, it will look like nine as in |\| | |\| E.

I do not see the answer anywhere. mnawazish.

Interesting

She saw the number NINE which is formed of

’11’ matchsticks.

NINE consist of eleven sticks- Nice exercise for mind-

The person has triple vision,,

Thier is actually only 4 match sticks,

4 times 3 = 12

Take one away

3 times 3 = 9

Maaaaany people replied correctly…am laaaaate 🙁 ofcourse she saw NINE made with eleven match sticks.

You can use the 12 matchsticks to form the word “NINE”.

There are actually 11 matchsticks remaining, but they are arranged in a way to form number “NINE”. So she sees 9 in front of her 😀

yes she can see NINE but not 9 match sticks

she doesn’t see well

lol ! Her vision is all right 🙂

I don’t know

XII = 12

If you take on from XII

IX = 9

Its right!!! I guess

read now* instead of not

There are actually 11 matchsticks remaining, but they are arranged in a way to form number “NINE”. So she sees 9(NINE) in front of her 🙂

12-1 = 11 = She took 1 but she see now 9 then the ? is which one she took you can give the answer, OK!

Yes, of course there are 11 matchsticks remaining, but they are arranged in a way to form number “NINE”. So she sees 9 (NINE) in front of her 🙂

NiNE is made out of 11 matchsticks but not the figure 9

I\I I I\I E

3 1 3 4= 11

I can think of two answers…. first either the word lying is meant to be understood as in a LIE and the matchsticks lied to her…

second it doesn’t clearly say if she saw nine matchsticks may be she had looked at the number 9

NINE is written using 11 match sticks!!

well if the matchstick did spell out the number nine then the Question above has a grammatical error.

as it should then read

‘ She could only see THE Number 9’

i say she closed one eye and in her field of vision remained 9 😉

If like this even any child can solve it.

She is actually seeing english letter NINE which is made with remaining 11 Matchstics.

NINE written with eleven matchsticks

NINE written with elen matchsticks

actually she is left with 11 match sticks; just put them like this and it will be 9: NINE
