How would you write your solution?

Chim Tu has a large rectangular table. On it, there are finitely many pieces of paper with non-overlapping interiors, each one in the shape of a convex polygon. At each step, Chim Tu is allowed to slide one piece of paper in a straight line such that its interior does not touch any other piece of paper during the slide. Can Chim Tu always slide all the pieces of paper off the table in finitely many steps?

Please provide a full solution.

Note: this question is from HMMT, if this is the case
