Show menu


The longest dimension in a cube is the diagonal from top to bottom of opposite vertices. This is shown on this dissection of a cube.

The half-cube is cut into two pieces by a plane through the long diagonal and at right angles to it.

Can you draw a net of these pieces? Are they identical?
