Default A Holy New Board Game

Hi Math People,
Suppose you have a plywood board measuring 3m by 8m. You want to fill a hole that measures 2m by 12m. You also only want to divide the board into two pieces. Is it possible?

I know that real plywood only measures 4 foot by 8 foot.
I got this puzzle from https://www.mathsisfun.com/

Also, for a hint, this is a simpler problem to one that I asked several months ago.

Also note that both the board and the hole measure 24 m^2

Happy Puzzling,

Matt
