Wheel to 3 Triangles

This is hard to explain. 1.Take the top horizontal match and move it to the line below the wheel slightly left of the existing base match.
2.Take the bottom horizontal match of the wheel and move it down one row to the right of the first mach you moved
3.You now need to move the two lower angled matches down to complete one large equilateral triangle which then appears to have two 'ears' on top of it.
Hope this helps.
