In the image below, all shapes are exactly the same. How will you explain the missing piece in the bottom figure?

  1. Sid Hollander had this to say about that:

    This it is an interesting version (with color)of the original question where pieces of the triangle original are moved about to make a 'larger triangle' (by one sq unit).

    One need only examine the slope of the dark green and the red triangle to determine that they are not equal (i.e 2/5 vrs. 3/8) and compare that to the apparent slope of the large 'triangle'/quadrilateral 5/13)
