The fitting‐together‐ability of a Punch‐Matrix/Particle puzzle (PMP‐puzzle) can be automatically investigated, based on two independent scattering experiments. A PMP‐puzzle consists of a large homogeneous matrix piece (the punch‐matrix) and N single homogeneous fragment particles. The well‐investigated ‘Dead Leaves’ puzzle is a special case of a PMP‐puzzle. On the one hand, a Fourier transformation of the scattering curve of this ensemble (matrix piece and fragment particles) yields the function g1N(r). On the other hand, the chord length distribution density φ(r) of the separate fragment pieces, φ(r), is assumed to be known, at least near the origin r→0. The ratio between both terms yields a function Φ1N(r) = g1N(r)/φ(r), the behavior of which is discussed for r→0. The fitting ability is designed by Φ1N(0+) = 1. Examples of Φ1N(r) are discussed. A numerical approach for determining the terms g(0+) in question and two examples are explained.
