110. 1X1 Square : Add 16 creating 5 equal Squares
Add 16 matchsticks creating 5 squares equal in size
(If you do some maths beforehand you can actually figure out ho to place them.)
Forming 5 squares with 20 sticks (16 + 4) means 4 sticks are used per square. (20 / 5 = 4) Therefore, no two squares are adjacent using a common stick to form a side. Understanding this makes the puzzle easy.
There are also other solutions.
