Find a way to partition a square into convex pentagons.
Draw the square, and bisect it vertically AB, and horizontally CD.
Mark the points E,F halfway towards the centre on the horizontal bisector. Draw the lines CE, FD. Use E as the apex of a regular pentagon whose base falls on AB, do the same with F.
Complete the puzzle by drawing the vertical lines from the four free vertices of the pentagons to the top and bottom sides to form two 'house' shapes.
And that's it.
