Only thing is that this solution is 4x6 and not 6x4 as the problem required. The format is RxC.

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 am lost as well, I don't see a 6x4 rectangle anywhere.
