cant you cut it from the point corner to the other point corner in a straight line, then slide the bottom left up, joining it at the top of the other half therefore giving you a skew 4 by 6

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?

You have to count the half squares and sum them with the complete sqares in the same line to make it sence.

Hockeyislife19, I don't see how your slices would make a rectangle. It could make a bowtie but not a rectangle D:

So... Yea.

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

It works fine, if you fold the smaller piece along the bias, as shown. Which is how I solved it.
