Here is a little sphinx, small version of the big one found in the Egyptian desert.( Its dimensions are written next to each side )
What is the minimum pieces of little sphinx required to make a larger sphinx?
How many such irregular shapes can you think of which follow this logic?
The architects need but 4.
Ra has dazzled me! I see not my plans.
With his blessing may I add to your collection.
I have a 'T', 4 squares, four of which can be offset into a square of its own right. This square, copied 4 times, replicates the original 'T'. It is possible to manipulate these 'T' shapes so that no formal square exists.
I also have a "J".
