This is the twelfth puzzle that appears in Professor Layton and the Curious Village. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Gordon. In order to complete this puzzle, you must cut the paper to form two pieces into a rectangle.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    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.

Hint Two
    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.

Hint Three
    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.
