Make a Rectangle is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Curious Village.

Puzzle

If you want to cut the piece of paper shown in Diagram 1 into two pieces and then reassemble them to form a rectangle, all you have to do is cut the paper as shown in Diagram 2.

However, in order to assemble the pieces as shown in Diagram 2 you need to flip one of the pieces over before putting them together.

Where should you cut the paper if you want to turn the paper in Diagram 1 into a rectangle without flipping either of your two pieces?

Hints




Click a Tab to reveal the Hint.

The example shape that the puzzle shows you (Diagram 2) isn't at all indicative of the shape you're looking for.

Think about a totally different shape you'd like to try.

The paper has a total area of 15 squares.

Since you're trying to assemble a rectangle, the only dimensions possible are 3x5 squares or 5x3 squares.

Look for a piece that can help you complete a rectangle that's five squares tall.

Now that you know the height of your rectangle, you should be able to narrow down your options a little.


Solution

Incorrect

Nope, give it another try.

Correct

That's right!

Now that you know the answer, the puzzle seems quite simple, doesn't it?
