This conundrum was sent to me by my good friend DogLover. He adds :-
"The curious thing is that if you add up all the areas of the four parts they come to 0.5 less than the whole.
I.e. The whole covers 5 x 13 squares divided by 2 = 32.5, but the individual parts add up to 32.
I don't understand why. Is this something that leads to an explanation of the puzzle? If so, I can't see it!"
Is that weird or what?
