This is the forty-third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Balsa. In order to solve this puzzle, you must cut the board into two pieces to create a rectangle.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Just like in the first board-splitting puzzle, you need to cut the board in two places to make a second piece. Don't forget, since you'll be combining these two pieces into a single rectangle, you need to make sure all the little gaps and protrusions in your two boards fit together snugly.

Hint Two
    After you make your cuts, you won't need to rotate either piece to make them fit together as a rectangle.

Hint Three
    When cut properly, the two boards both have a maximum length of four units. To make a piece with that length, try cutting the board below the fourth square down from the upper-left corner. You'll need to make one more cut, but we'll leave that one to you.
