    6th grade peoblem

    How can you cut an 8-foot by 3-foot board into two pieces so that both pieces together cover a 12-foot by 2-foot hole?

    Hello

    Cut the timber like this.

    But you'll need some glue too!

    I hope this helps.

    6th grade problem

    Ting, thank you very much. We tried it and it worked perfectly. My grandson will now get a few extra points on his homework.
