Here's My Attempt

So excited. My first try at solving one of your puzzles (I usually have to give up and peek at the spoilers)!

Spoiler:
Take the 10 x 10 carpet and cut twice: Two pieces will be 10 x 4 and one will be 10 x 2.

Cut the 10 x 2 piece so that you've got a 9 x 2 and a 1 x 2 piece.

Then, you put them together so the two 10 x 8 pieces are horizontal with the 9 x 2 piece butting up against them vertically on one side. Use the little 1 x 2 piece on the other side to finish off the empty space.

This explanation comes out better if I could show a picture, but since I've just figured out how to use spoiler tags, I'll just say "pic available upon request."


How'd I do?
