The above piece of chocolate looks like a square with 4 pieces stuck on to it. How can you divide it with 4 straight cuts that they may form four congruent squares when moved? (You may not move the pieces until all cuts have been made, and you may not rotate or flip over any of the pieces when moving them. Also, all the chocolate must be used to make the squares.)
...and 4 bites. Cut through the middle from top to bottom then left to right. Bite off the 4 added squares and eat slowly. You have 4 squares left.
