I have a cross in the form of one square with four identical squares surrounding it
Cut it into the fewest number of pieces possible such that, when rearranged the pieces form two smaller crosses of identical size.
A __ _ B
__|_| |_|__ The cross may be cut into 4 sections.
|__|_| |_|__| (The number of cuts performed depends
__ _ _ __ on what constitutes a cut.) One cross may
|__|_| |_|__| be formed by overlaying the middle square
|_| |_| of A with that of D. An identical cross may
C D also be formed from B and C.
