The T Puzzle

Home / Puzzles in Education / Hands On Puzzles / Grade 6 /

This puzzle dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, and since then it was many times produced as an advertising puzzle.

The goal is to make of these four pieces a symmetric capital T. You're allowed to rotate the pieces as you wish and even turn them over, but they must not overlap each other in the final letter.

In fact there are two symmetric capital T letters that you can get from these pieces. Try to find both of them.

By the way, there is at least one more extra symmetric shape that can be formed from this set - isosceles trapezoid. Can you find it too?
