You want to fill a hole that measures 2m by 12m. You also only want to divide the board into two pieces. Is it possible? I know that real plywood only measures 4 foot by 8 foot. I got this puzzle from https://www.mathsisfun.com/ Also, for a hint, this is a simpler problem to one that I asked several months ago. http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=19499 Also note that both the board and the hole measure 24 m^2 Happy Puzzling, Matt
