Puzzle of Sphinx (Posted on 2006-10-11) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Here is a little sphinx, small version of the big one found in the Egyptian desert.( Its dimensions are written next to each side )

            /\
          1/  \
     /-1--/    \2
   1/           \
   /------3------\
             
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?
