Welcome to the complicated triangle state of affairs. What the hell?

Triangle

The identical 4 shapes, when rearranged, appear to take up much less area and depart a clean sq.. How is that attainable?

[expand title=”SOLUTION“]

A good friend despatched this to me in school and it ruined my life for a bit earlier than it lastly clicked. Right here’s what’s taking place:

So it looks like all that’s taking place is a rearrangement of the items of a single massive triangle:1

However one thing tough is happening with the large hypotenuse in each triangles.

It’s all about slope. The blue triangle, crimson triangle, and what seems to be the big triangle all have completely different slopes.

Blue triangle hypotenuse = slope of two/5 = 16/40
Pink triangle hypotenuse = slope of three/8 = 15/40
Huge triangle hypotenuse = slope of 5/13 = 15/39 = (15.38)/40
These three slopes are shut sufficient that they’ll seem an identical in a drawing (particularly one with thick define traces)—however the massive hypotenuse is definitely not a straight line, however a two-line angle within the form of a very huge V.2

Within the high triangle, the V goes “in”—so there’s no room for additional area (hypotenuse A). Within the backside triangle, the V goes “out” (hypotenuse B)—clearing up area for one additional sq.. The little slit of space inside the 2 hypotenuses within the above diagram is similar as the realm in a single sq. on the graph.
