After Pythagoras devoted himself for many years to the study of the triangle and had discovered all the secrets of it acute and obtuse angles, he turned his attention to the cube. Studying the surface area first, he made rapid progress, but become stuck when considering the volume. To aid his thinking, he got his students to construct a wooden cube which could be taken apart. Students will be students and they came up with a clever design using seven pieces which had the old man stumped. Nearing despair, he decided to apply for a pension and leave the problem of the cube to prosterity. This explains why today  Pythagoras is known only for his theorems of the triangle. But even he would have been suprised to learn that, 2500 years later, there are still people who have difficulty making a cube out of seven simple pieces...
