# Four-Piece Dissection of Juel's Pyramid to a Prism

This Demonstration shows a four-piece dissection of Juel's pyramid to a prism using the dissection of a Hill tetrahedron of the first type. The three-piece dissection of any Hill tetrahedron of the first type was found independently by Schobi (1985) and Hanegraaf.

### DETAILS

Juel's pyramid has the base of a cube and apex the center of the cube. A dissection of the pyramid to a parallelepiped is described in [2]. The construction consists of cutting the pyramid into three layers.
There is a hinged dissection of the Hill tetrahedron to a triangular prism, using a construction found independently by P. Schobi and A. Hanegraaf [1]. This is a three-piece dissection. Together these yield a four-piece dissection of Juel's pyramid to the prism.
