(a necessary preliminary to Part 2, which will contain the real challenge)
Show how to dissect a square with area A into n pieces which can be assembled to make 3 separate squares, each with area A/3.
Any interesting n will be nice to see, but the aim is really to see with how few pieces it can be done.
No gimmicks or 'tricks' are needed.
