Suppose you have a checkerboard, and a set of dominoes. Each domino is twice the area of a square of the checkerboard. Clearly, you could cover the entire checkerboard with thirtytwo dominoes. But here's the question: Suppose you chopped off two opposite corners of the checkerboard. Can you now completely cover the remainder of the board using thirtyone dominoes?
