find all the ways you can find to fit the three pieces together so that there
is at least one line of symmetry for the overall outline of the combined shape

my preference is to establish a rule that edges must meet whole edges

question (2) has several other solutions but with the same outline as one of the others

(with the single and the double pieces swapped over)

many thanks to the Puntmat team (and students) who have provided additional solutions

(2) 10 solutions

(3) 5 solutions

(4) 4 solutions

(5) 9 solutions (8 different outlines)
