it and now im cutting it...evil trick

Nice one. The hipotenuse of the red triangle and the one of the dark
green triangle are not a straight line (the two hipothenuses make
different angles with the horizontal line in fact...)

If you put a piece of paper alongside the longest side of the second
triangle (the hypotenuse) you can see that it is not a straight line,
but just appears to look like one.

hypotenuses are not straight. one is curved slightly inward the other
slightly outward

message for shizzle...just because other people have brains and are
smart (unlike you) it doesn't make them gay.

if you take the area of the rectangle that would hold both sets of
parts it is 13x5 = 65, so half of that is 65/2 = 32.5, if you then
take the area of each piece is 8 * 3 / 2 = 12, 2 * 5 / 2 = 5, 5 + 2 =
7, 5 + 3 = 8. The sum of the area's of a set of pieces is 32. So
each set has half a block that it can't fill up so those two halves
appear in the "hole"

shut up! why would i want to chat with any of you freaks?
nikki on December 28, 2007 at 12:54
you guys are getting too mathmatical its stupid the answer is that the
red one in longer in length then the dark green one so when red goes
on top the distance between orange and green is greater

The second triangle's hypotenuses is not straight. Difficult to see,
yet simply there.
Minnie on January 06, 2008 at 05:58
once i saw this was math-ish related... i didnt even
try...lol CLUELESS ARE U ALWAYS CONFUZZLED?
amber on January 15, 2008 at 02:36
wat happened? can't believe it; how is that so...
Deyzee Rae on January 26, 2008 at 10:38
I can't believe the answers I read. It's a nice puzzle, but not that
hard to figure out. The reason for the "hole" is tha the red triangle
ends up overlapping part of the area it occupied before the parts were
moved around. The total area of the overlap amounts to one square
slot.
Carlos on February 09, 2008 at 02:57
it wasnt that hard the reason i came up with was that the light green
and the ornage wasnt on top of each other and that the red and the
dark green are weird haha thats not a very good reason is it? haha
Anna on February 22, 2008 at 01:22
I cant understand it :d
Jazzy on March 31, 2008 at 08:13
Wow.thatz so K00llll
Jazzy. on April 27, 2008 at 06:13
The slope of the triangles is not the same. If you complete the upper
rectangle by rotating all the shapes there will be a little sliver
between the two diagonals left over. If you do the same to the lower
shape the diagonals of the two halves of the completed rectangle will
overlap. It helps to realize that the two triangles' diagonals are
not the same line (not parallel) but turn slightly right at the point
they meet.
completeknowitall on May 13, 2008 at 10:50
I'm only 13 and I figued it out in 15 sec. Yes!
^__^ on July 02, 2008 at 06:39
For the immature kids and teenagers posting inappropriate comments on
here, do you think the reason you can't figure this stuff out is
because it's too hard for you? And if it is too hard, or you don't
want to put forth the effort to even try, what kind of career do you
think you'll end up with? Plus, shouldn't you be making youtube
videos of blowing off you fingers with firecrackers rather than
posting on here?
Xy on July 07, 2008 at 08:06
im 14 and i got it almost straight away, i still found it weird tho.
btw, gd 1 Xy, if u r 2 immature 2 write sumthin worth readin, theres

asia on July 23, 2008 at 01:25
exactly, i was going to put as my comment: hard to explain but i guess
that says it :P lol
Caleb on July 23, 2008 at 07:41
