#438 Folding Paper

Posted by MathieuB on 12 May 2007 - 04:25 AM

Here is a representation of the solution:

1) fold on the diagonal of 5-7, to put 4 under 6
2) fold 5, and manage to fold it inside the previous fold
3) fold 6-7 under 8-3
4) fold 1-8 under 2-3
5) fold 2 under 3.

All the numbers are ordered, but some of them are fold in 2 on their diagonal (7 and 5).

For the second one, this is the solution (without drawing):
1) Fold 1-4 under 2-3 (5-8 are fold in the middle, so you now see only half of 8 and half of 5)
2) Fold 8-2-7 over 5-3-6
3) Fold 8 under 1
4) Fold 6 and 7 between 5 and 8
