Cross cut (Posted on 2006-03-06) Difficulty: 4 of 5
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.

Consider difficulty level | Comment 9 of 18 |
Given the D4 level, such solutions as cutting into 4 and overlapping, or making 1 cut to create 2 pieces seem to hardly what is required.

Most likely it is, or is similar, what Bob Smith or Jer are proposing.
