Answer: Solution #1 - Squares First, Carl divides his as to reserve to himself one-fourth in the form of a square. Geometric Puzzle #1 Then, Carl takes the remaining 3/4 shape and scales it down by 1/4.  He then, multiplies the shape into 4 identically shaped pieces, and aranges them so that they fit into the original 3/4 shape. Geometric Puzzle #1 Solution 1 Solution #2 - Rectangles First, create a triangle that is 1/4 the size of the square. Now, with straight lines, create two squares. Proceed to disect the two squares with horizontal lines creating 4 triangles.
