Square = half itself? (Posted on 2006-05-04) Difficulty: 1 of 5
A man had a window a yard square, but it let in too much light. He blocked up half of it. After this he still had a square window a yard high and a yard wide. How did he do it?

'a 2 ft x 2ft, 3 in, rectangle, placed in any orientation within the yard square. '

This is not a square window, not is it a yard high and a yard wide.
