Please help me with the following question:
With two straight cuts, dissect a square into three triangle such that they can be put together without overlapping so that they form an obtuse angle triangle.
I have no idea how to proceed.
Thanks for any help.
-First of all draw a line parralel to base with height twice as that of side of square
-Now From the diagonal of square join the endpoint of the square to the parrallel line
- Join the basepoint to the point of intersection of parralel line with the new line
- Now you will be able to see the cut
