Polominoes are well known due to their use in the game Tetris, in which shapes made from four squares called tetrominoes are arranged within a game area. Polominoes can be constructed using any number of squares. In this article trominoes, which consist of three squares in an L-shape formation, are examined. We determine whether these can be used to fill larger L-shaped formations.
