1-2-3-4 Square (Posted on 2016-08-12) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A square has an area of 10 cm^2. Two straight lines are drawn across the square dividing it into four areas of 1 cm^2, 2 cm^2, 3 cm^2, and 4 cm^2.

Where can those lines be drawn?

Using a 10*10 square based on {0,0} for ease of reference:

If a vertical line halves the square, then the line from {0,1} to [10,5} divides the square in the required proportions.
