Some Thoughts Some thoughts on the problem Comment 15 of 15 |
The respective angles of incline of the blue triangle and the green triangle in each of the shapes A and B are different. In addition, the shape of A is concave while the shape of B is convex. Accordingly, Area(A) > Area(B) which, amongst other things, explains the  appearance of an extra square in shape B.
