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?

As can be seen thus far, these smaller "sphinges" are made up of squares and "half-square" triangles. There are many of these shapes that can be formed.
