This is the fifty third puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Art. In order to solve this puzzle, you must indicate where the board must be cut into two pieces to arrange both pieces into a square.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    You don't need to make any cuts on the left side of the board.

Hint Two
    The gap is three squares long. In order to fill it, you need to find a place to cut an equally shaped piece from.

    Find a shape you can cut out that will both fill this three-square gap and utilize the three-square L shape protruding from the right side.

Hint Three
    You actually need to make two separate cuts to form the right piece: a short, one-square line and a longer, four-square line that turns twice.

    Once you've made the correct cuts, shift your piece one square up and two squares to the left, and it will fit right in and make a square!

Super Hint
    The top square of the L-shaped piece protruding from the right side of the board is one square of the shape you need to cut out. From there, draw two lines to the left so that your shape includes the two squares to the left of it. Now combine those three squares with the other two of the protruding L shape, and you've got your five-square piece! If you finish cutting out this shape, you've got it!
