### Triangle — Heptagon (8 pieces)

### Square — Heptagon (7 pieces)

This was one of the first dissection improvements I found, and I am particularly
proud of finding it. The previous record that I knew about was a 9 piece dissection
found by Lindgren. I managed to improve this in 8 pieces in a number of ways, and
this made me sure that there had to be a 7 piece solution. The problem is the plain
square strip cannot be overlaid over the usual heptagon strip since the square strip
is too wide. So I looked for a narrower heptagon strip. The technique I use allows
me to produce a range of heptagon strips, but I chose the one that ensures that an
edge of the heptagon coincides with an edge of the square. This saves a piece
giving a 7 piece record. I don’t believe that a further improvement exists.

This is a modification of a dissection found by Greg Frederickson.
My variation is more symmetric, but uses the same number of pieces.
In Frederickson’s first book he mentions an 11 piece version of this
dissection, but he has not been able to find a copy of it. Either he
miscounted the number of pieces, or there is a forgotten trick to save
a piece. So, can you improve this dissection?
