012 Make a Rectangle - Professor Layton and The Curious Village (UK/US)
If you want to cut the piece of paper shown in Diagram 1 into two pieces and then reassemble them to form a rectangle, all you have to do is cut the paper as shown in Diagram 2.
However, in order to assemble the pieces as shown in Diagram 2 you need to flip one of the pieces over before putting them together.
Where should you cut the paper if you want to turn the paper in Diagram 1 into a rectangle without flipping either of your two pieces?
The example shape that the puzzle shows you (Diagram 2) isn't at all indicative of the shape you're looking for.
Think about a totally different shape you'd like to try.
The paper has a total area of 15 squares.
Since you're trying to assemble a rectangle, the only dimensions possible are 3x5 squares or 5x3 squares.
Look for a piece that can help you complete a rectangle that's five squares tall.
Now that you know the height of your rectangle, you should be able to narrow down your options a little.
Now that you know the answer, the puzzle seems quite simple, doesn't it?
