1. Megha Baikadi says:

A T needs 2 lines, E needs 4, N needs 3.

15 matchsticks minus 6 matchsticks gives 9 matchsticks, exactly what is needed to spell the word ten with one matchstick per line.

Or if it helps to visualize it, remove 3 from sides and bottom of first “square” for a T, one from right side of second “square” for an E, and two from top and bottom of last “square” for an N

2. Remove a half so that makes it 2 remove 4 more and there are 5 on the other matches 5 x 2 = 10 matches
