Sam Loyd's Square Dissection Puzzle (S407b)
The Puzzling World of Polyhedral Dissections

The figure below shows Sam Loyd's well
known squaredissection
puzzle. It is made by locating the
midpoints of all four sides
of the square, drawing the appropriate
lines, and dissecting.
The five pieces construct all of the
puzzle patterns shown.
Again note the interesting paradox
of the two on the right 
one being a solid rectangle and the
other a rectangle with a
corner missing, yet both use all five
pieces.
Solution:
I've been told by some of you anonymous
mathematicians
that you don't bother with these puzzles
if I include the
solution. So, no solution was
included.
