## Dividing a square into 5 equal squares puzzle

Your grandma bought a square piece of chocolate. She needs to cut it
into 5 equal pieces to give out to you and your 4 other cousins. As an
expert in graphics, you need to come up with a geometric plan how to
cut out the square chocolate. These are the rules:

- Each child should get a square piece of chocolate of the same
area.
- No one is allowed to have more chocolate than the others.
- You can only use straight lines and the 8 red points shown below
to divide the square.
- You can cut the square into more than 5 pieces and then join
them together to form 5 equal squares.

Try this challenge and think about it well. You might use the trial and
error method to reach to your solution, and if you cut a model of the
square it might be easier. You can check your solution against the
wrong attempts on page 3 and the correct answer on page 4.
