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?

I'm with Incognitum, the 4x6 grid shown in the solution isn't really a rectangle, as far as I understood the definition of a rectangle anyway. Doesn't a rectangle have to have 4 right angles (and thus 4 sides)? The solution only has two right angle and actually has 6 sides.

I'm a little slow on the uptake... the solution is just displaying the slices.... here they are put together as a rectangle:

I agree. It is easy to see that the top (without the red) will have 4 squares.

I spent a good deal of time trying to figure a way to make a rectangle out of those squares...

The original says "Slice the picture into 2 sections"
I would draw a straight line from the upper left hand corner diagonally to the lower right hand corner.
That would make two sections "from which you could make a rectangle 6x4 squares."

pls post a picture how you would make the 6x4 squares rectangle from a diagonally sliced original image ... unless you meant that I should make the rectangle

Only the jagged cut wll work, and it isn't exactly a "slice". A Slice implys a straight cut. the other soulutions are not 2 slices
