"Triangle-chopping"
 
   At https://www.cut-the-knot.org/Curriculum/Geometry/DecoSymmetry.shtml in your 4-piece dissection the blue and yellow pieces are adjacent to one another in the same way in the two arrangements. So they may be combined into a single piece. Then there are 3 pieces, produced by 2 cuts, as required.

Thankyou

   Thank you. I read "with two cuts" but perceived "with two pieces". Of course.
