Maybe I'm missing something, but those look mirrored to me--not identical. ;)

Yes, they are mirrored until you turn 1 piece :D

Well, they are mirrored. You would need to "flip" the shape for them to be identical, not turn.

The puzzle doesn't mention you must cut along the lines either. You could cut from corner to corner.

nevermind about the cutting corner to corner. That would be wrong. Sorry!

Not strictly identical, it's a symmetry, does that count? :-)

Couldn't you just cut it horizantally at the 3 and a 1/2 square? Then if you flipped one side horizantally, it would look the same as the other side, so they would be symmetrical.

rookie1ja - usually when people post puzzles like these they provide an explanation for how they came to the solution. do you have any suggestions for what rational was used in finding the solution?
