Lisa and Nicole are playing a new version of Toothpicks and Tiles. Instead of showing Nicole a shape so that she has to find the number of toothpicks and the number of tiles, Lisa describes the shape and Nicole has to build it out of tiles.

Lisa says, "My shape has tiles and toothpicks."

  1. Draw a shape that matches Lisa's description. Justify your answer.

  2. Is there more than one shape that matches this description? If so, sketch a second shape.
