This is a mere illusion. If the base and height are the same the area is also. Therfore this is some retared trickery. Not even an interesting mental puzzle so who gives a fuck.

Area of a triangle = base x height /2 PERIOD

[quote user="LithuanianLabourer"]The area of big triange is 13*5/2 =32.5 squares

Area of red triangle is 8*3/2= 12 squares

Area of green triangle is 5*2/2= 5 squares

Therefor the area of the rest of big triangle minus area of red and green triangle has to be 32.5 - 12 - 5 = 15.5 squares

And yet on first picture it appears to be 15 and on second picture it is 16.

HAX !!!!!!!1111!!!!!!11 .... visual and methematical hax, fucking cheaters !

I could explain this in simple picture form but your retardedness makes me laugh so much my balls hurt.

^No shit Faggot. You posted the pic. So you made the question and know the answer? Is that suppose to impress us? Go on with your brillance then, Oh Emperor. Don't forget to get dressed first though.

Am I the only person who still cant understand this? I've looked for a massive 5+ seconds now, and I'm still none the wiser.... someone please explain.

^ Remember what you learned in geometry. After I realised it was impossible and I looked at it again it all made sense. how can two triangles with the same length sides suddenly increase in surface area? They cant. Look closely at the hypotenuse.

^ no shit sherlock, but it still doesnt make sense. that it, either someone explains it simple enough for a retard to understand, or im deleting the internet, starting with redtube.

anyway, i've investigated further (im really really really bored) and it does infact fit, there is no trickery. Its just simply the fact that when you move the shapes around, they dont fit into the same shape

^ lol.

Okay now, my left eye went fuzzy from anger and frustration so I did some research and a few measurements of myself. In the bottom triangle the green and red triangles have different gradients, the green triangle having a greater or steeper gradient. So it isn't a true triangle. Somehow with it not being a true triangle it magically opens up a wormhole in your head and gives you a seizure. My eye is still fuzzy.

Hypothenuse is not straight, because red triangle and green triangle are not proportional.

Green triangle side A to side B is 2 / 5= 0.4

Red triangle side A to sibe B is 3 / 8= 0.375

"Triangle" on the first picture and "triangle" on the second picture are really not triangles and one is slightly different from the other.

^ Here... I found a visual explanation. Alternatively you could do what I did when I first saw the problem and hold a ruler up to the screen to understand the truth

Area of red triangle is 8*3/2= 12 squares

Area of green triangle is 5*2/2= 5 squares

Therefor the area of the rest of big triangle minus area of red and green triangle has to be 32.5 - 12 - 5 = 15.5 squares

And yet on first picture it appears to be 15 and on second picture it is 16.
