Professor Mysteria went to his class and asked them to complete a problem.

"Using the square piece of paper in front of you, get 8 triangles of the same shape in 3 cuts, using the scissors only."

No one got the problem except for one person. How did they do it?

Easy, but tricky.

The only thing I don't understand why 3 cuts. It can easily be done with 2 cuts.

I can do it in one. It doesn't consume the whole sheet of paper, but I get 8 congruent triangles.

you could also form 8 triangles by folding it and then cutting. you never said you can't fold it

I was attempting to avoid the whole foldng thing with 'using the scissors only'. Clearly didn't work.
