You’ve got an 8×8 chessboard and some dominoes, each of which fits nicely on two squares of the chessboard. You can easily tile the entire chessboard with these dominoes. Now remove two squares, one in one corner and the other diagonally opposite. You’re left with 62 squares. Can you tile this with the dominoes? If so, show how. If not, prove why not. Answer below.

Prior to mutilating the chessboard, you can fit 32 dominoes on it – each domino has to occupy one white and one black square. The diagonally opposite corners of the board are the same colour, so removing them leaves 32 squares of one colour and 30 of the other. However many dominoes you place on the board, each has to occupy one white and one black square, so it’s impossible to cover all the squares.
