Checkerboard Dissection (Posted on 2009-11-23) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A 5x5 square has a checkerboard pattern. I want to divide the square into pieces to form a 4x4 and a 3x3 square. Both smaller squares will retain the checkerboard pattern.

Find a four piece division of the 5x5 square that will accomplish this.

Find a five piece division which accomplishes the task without needing to flip or rotate any of the pieces.
