Tiling an L Shape with the 12 Pentominoes


The problem of arranging the pentominoes to form a rectangle has received much attention. The corresponding problem for L shapes has not.

Here I show the all L-shaped polyominoes that can be tiled with the 12 pentominoes.

See also L Shapes from Two Pentominoes.


The 12 pentominoes can form 73 different L shapes.
