The shape was not divided as the task asked. It was copied and pasted to make the same shape and therefore multiplied, NOT divided.

I thought we where to divide the original into 4 equal parts. Not add more parts. Do not get it.

Lets suppose this is a piece of delicious fudge I have to share with my 3 siblings. First cut forms 2 triangles. 2nd and 3rd cuts divide triangles into 4 pieces. *Grabs bigger triangle half.*

You have to change scale. The bigger picture is equivalent to the small one. Just scale copy it into the original figure and you get it! Got it???

Hahaha, a simple solution showing the easy way to get 4 parts.

Yes, the original directive was not met. The solution was to reproduce the original shape.

Ambiguous. I looked at it one way as a trapezoid, but then it also appeared as a rectangle. It says to divide into 4 equally smaller parts. Based on the demo, how are they smaller? The four parts were mirrors of the original.

It only appeared that they added parts, only because they used the original shape to form three other similar shapes. They still all fit into the original as smaller sizes of the original shape! I thought this was fairly obvious. But then, I'm a limey!

Not very clear on the task at hand, they seem to do this alot, they expect us to guess what they mean.

Jeannie Fontana, I agree! Divide doesn't mean add parts. Thats akin to 5+5= "Solution" 5+5_3÷6=

Very clever! Shows how to take 4 of the same piece, piece it together to make the exact original shape. Then you know how to divide the original piece into 4 exact pieces.

The video multiplied the shape, not divided into four equal portions. How about some dimensions in the diagram, then it could be done properly. THIS SUCKED THE BIG ONE.

Question was to divide shape not area ! Solution is valid. there was no dimensions stated.

You were asked to divide it in four SMALLER parts. This was easy, just draw 2 straight lines in the original figure. Don’t m’indique the other puzzle

My solution to that puzzle is so simple - one unbroken line! The line would almost look like the letter N. (The first downward line should be in an angle that touches the corner of the right angle of the figure shown!) You will get 4 equal parts of the same shape! The result was simple and straightforward!
