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

Brian,

Pick it up and turn it 90 degrees.

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.

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 solved it Josiah's way which I agree was easier so here's the cut with the two colors

Oh I read the directions too quickly.. I thought they said 2 cuts not 2 sections

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.

6x4 Rectangle - 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"

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

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

I can say there is a lot of solutions to this one, but wouldn't it be the easiet to show the solution like this one:

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.
