its because they dont fit perfectly in each other, so the rectangle cant really exist, just take the slopes of the hypotenuse on the triangles as the slopes of the long side of the trapezoids, the triangles have a slope of 8/3 (2.33) and the traezoids have a slope of 5/2 (2.5) , it only looks like they line up

you found it on 4chan. but the problem is that those arnt numbers. those are blocks. theres no mathematical equation there.

It's a simple matter of changing the area. Think of it in simpler term: a 2x2 block. It has a perimeter of 8 and an area of 4. If you change the perimeter to be 1x3, it would keep the perimeter of 8 but the new area would only be three. The only reason the animation throws you off is because it starts with a designated number of squares and seems to add one out of nowhere.

for all of you non-beleivers, this is 100% absolute fact. just spent the last 40 mins trying it down the last box

m1 = 3/8 = 0.375 , Gradient of red & green slope
m2 = 2/5 = 0.4 , Gradient of blue & orange Slope

Seconds Grid: Slope interference between red and orange & blue and green @ (0<x<5).
Yr = m1*5 = 2
AreaRed = 1.875*5*1/2 = 4.6875cm^2

Yo = 0.4*5 = 2
AreaOrange= 5*2*1/2 = 5cm^2

is it me or do the blu-red figures not perfectly match with the green-orange figures?

I KNOW I KNOW! Because you the perimeter can stay the same but the area can change. SAW IT ON CYBERSPACE, BITCH!

And they say TV never teaches you anything.

There is a gap in the diagonal of the rectangle

you can get more surface area, in this case the cubes, depending on the length and width.
