The wording is wrong. The jagged cut is not a "slice".

Such a wonderful thing the Internet. Instead of nitpicking family and friends, now we can nitpick everyone on the entire planet! Enough already!

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?

6x4 Rectangle - Back to the Geometry Puzzles
Slice the picture into 2 sections (Edit: jagged cut) from which you could make a rectangle 6x4 squares.




Spoiler for Solution


Look at the solution and imagine picking up the piece on the right side. Turn the piece over then fit it into the bottom of the remaining piece.

Technically this works since one slice can be done by not taking the blade off the paper and outlining the two pieces with one stroke or "slice"
