Cut chessboard (Posted on 2003-09-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I cut myself a rectangle out of a chessboard. (All cuts were along the square lines, so the rectangle has integer sides.)

Were I to tell you either its area, or its perimeter, or the length of its diagonal, you wouldn't be able to determine the dimensions of the rectangle.

What's its size?

I did it a similar way, but I disagree with saying that "all of these have non unique perimeters" becuase the 1x1 and 8x8 pieces have unique ones.
