**Reiny**, Monday, April 16, 2012 at 8:37amconvert to cm

the piece is 348 cm by 228 cm

for an area of

79344 cm^2

79344 = 16x9x551 or 551 x (144)

so he can cut 551 squares , each one being 12 cm by 12 cm

(Two things I see wrong with this question.

1. That is one very large piece of wood, never seen one that big , the largest sheet of wood I can get at my lumber yard is 4 by 8 ft which is appr. 122 cm by 244 cm

2. How could he make all those cuts without losing anything to sawcuts ?)
