How to solve a problem

 I apply the following approach to solve a problem:

1. Look at the problem holistically.
2. Break the problem down into distinct parts
3. Identify the parts that can be solved, based on past knowledge and experience.
4. Carry out trial on the other parts and find the possible solution
5. Put them together.

I am usually able to find a complete solution to the problem.

This is how I solve a tangram puzzle as well.

I can solve a difficult tangram puzzle using this approach.
