    Keith, apart form the colouring, the same as I initially presented, albeit I stated 4 cuts and latterly corrected to 3.

    Thank you for having a go.

    Info Re: Divide a Square into 4 Equal Parts

    I was hoping for a sleight of hand somewhere.

    Here is one suggestion:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Curved Cuts.jpg 
Views:	22

ID:	122905

    If you scissor cut from top left to bottom right, you get two pieces.
    If you cut bottom left to centre and then top right to centre, you have a total of three cuts and four equal pieces.

    To get the accurate shapes in Xara, I used the square and four circles the same diameter as the side of the square all centred on a corner and therefore touching in the square's centre.
    The result is four unneeded semi-circles and eight pieces. If you pair (Add) adjacent pieces and colour, you get the four equal parts.

    Is life a contest to see how hard we can make a simple task?
