108. The Numbers 1 to 8 in Squares

Easy Medium Hard Extreme

Take 4 matchsticks and break each stick into 5 small pieces. Each broken stick represents a numerical value as shown in Step 1.

Step 2 is just an example and only shows how the numerical values 1 to 8 are represented using the broken sticks.

Now build the layout as shown in Step 3. The challenge is to place the numbers 1 to 8 (using the broken sticks) into the 8 squares so that no two consecutive numbers touch either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
