Yet another puzzle for you!

Two farmers had bought five square acres of land that had divided their farms and had asked a surveyor to lay out a straight fence that would divide their purchase into two equal parcels of land. After much thought, the surveyor came up with the answer. How was it done?

This is an easy one!

What's the answer you were looking for?
#24
When you said "divide their purchase into two equal parcels", you didn't say whether you meant equal shape or equal area. If you mean equal area then there is an infinite number of solutions :?
