### One of a continuing series

Readers have been getting off easy recently. I’m going back to geometry questions, so give your brain a work out.

I found this on the Internet, but you shouldn’t go looking for the solution without first coming up with a solution. With a single line, does not need to be straight, divide the shape shown above into two identical parts. Post your answer as a comment below.

Actually, send me a copy of your solution by email, and I will post it.

## Update

No solution. I have not solved it. Mike proposed a solution. See his comment below. Unable to post a graphic, he indicated the shape of the solution as follows:

XX

XXX

X

See the figure below:

Shape **A** is the original, turned upright. Shape **B** is Mike’s proposed solution in graphical form. My apologies if I misinterpreted Mike’s rendition.

What is apparent to me is that shape **B** cannot be fitted twice into shape **A**. I’m calling the Quiz Question still unanswered.

There are 12 squares, so each piece must have 6 squares. The solution seems too obvious.

Mike,

Each piece must be six squares in size. But what shape? The two pieces must be identical.

Yes, and the answer is obvious.
