Dissecting a Cube into a Golden Acute Rhombohedron and Three Congruent Rectangular Solids

This Demonstration shows a seven-piece dissection of a cube into an acute golden rhombohedron and three congruent rectangular solids. The viewpoint changes with the slider. Any one of the rectangular solids can be reassembled into a quarter of a Bilinski dodecahedron.
