 Cross cut (Posted on 2006-03-06)
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.

I disagree...

I would consider that a 'dead-end' or a 'T'

I think in the problem, he defines a cross "four identical squares surrounding" to mean a cross must have four appendages coming out from the center.

Of course.. by that note... that might mean my irregular 4 piece crosses are incorrect and your 4 piece regular crosses are correct if im to take "identical squares" literally
