5. Farmer and 4 Sons

Easy Medium Hard Extreme

A Farmer lives on one quarter of his farm, the area marked "A". He decides to divide the remaining three-quarters of the farm between his 4 sons. How should he do this if the area and shape of the 4 farms must be exactly the same? You can achieve this by adding 8 matchsticks.
