How Well Do You Know Polyomino? - Quiz

A polyomino can be defined as a plane geometric figure that is formed by one or more squad, edge to edge. The picture shows how it's done and you can use that to jog your memory. Still, if that definition doesn't remind you of anything, then explaining polyomino as a series of squares that you can arrange in the form of tiles (floor) should be better.
