ANOTHER JOINER'S PROBLEM.





(Various Dissection Puzzles)
A joiner had two pieces of wood of the shapes and relative proportions
shown in the diagram. He wished to cut them into as few pieces as
possible so that they could be fitted together, without waste, to form a
perfectly square table-top. How should he have done it? There is no
necessity to give measurements, for if the smaller piece (which is half
a square) be made a little too large or a little too small it will not
affect the method of solution.
153--A CUTTING-OUT PUZZLE.
Here is a little cutting-out poser. I take a strip of paper, measuring
five inches by one inch, and, by cutting it into five pieces, the parts
fit together and form a square, as shown in the illustration. Now, it is
quite an interesting puzzle to discover how we can do this in only four
pieces.
