Pentabolo Odd Pairs


A pentabolo or pentatan is a plane figure formed by joining five equal isosceles right triangles edge to equal edge. There are 30 different pentaboloes, not counting reflections and rotations.

An odd pair is a figure that can be tiled by an odd number of each of two polyforms. Here I show minimal known pentabolo odd pairs. If you find a smaller solution or solve an unsolved case, please write.
