The 2nd solution by josiah47 doesn't work. You can't make the green portion without cutting the piece into 3.

ummm... maybe i am missing something. but actually you can make that green portion with 2 slices
1. slice all the way through
2. pull away from original piece
3. slice top off
4. rearrange and place.

done and done... and much easier than 1st solution.

The puzzle is quite clear:

Slice the picture into 2 sections ...


Would be too easy if you could slice more than once, wouldn't it?

I'm sorry, perhaps geometry isn't my thing, but I'm not seeing how this slice makes the desired rectangle, could someone post the compleated 4x6 grid as made bythis slice?
