I am stumped on this puzzle: How many 3x1 pieces can fit on 8x8 board without overlapping? Since \(\frac{64}{3} = 21.\overline3\), the answer may be \(21\), but no matter how I place and arrange 3x1 pieces, I cannot fit 21th piece. So is it really \(20\)? If so, what do I need to know to be able to show that?

3x1 has to be straight, no "L shape"
