This results in a gap in the shape of a very thin parallelogram with an area, as MrRubik explains, of 1 unit. The width at its widest -- in the center between the green and red triangles -- is approximately 0.117 units. (1/sqrt(73))

They are. That`s not how this works. Read the comments.

the gap in the middle DOES matter

it`s very thin, but long so it makes 1cm^2.

check out murderous maths.co.uk if u dont believe me.

a gap in the middle wouldnt matter, it`d still be 5x13. they very slightly changed every slope, very very very freaking slightly. with many different slopes, they can change each one by just a hair and make it all fit.

Why do we even try to understand math?

i.e. 0.33333` + 0.33333` = 0.66666`, which is deccmalised to 0.66667, so + 1/3 = 1

so this video is mathematically wrong as generalizations are being used to solve it.

GYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.... *head asplodes*

Yep. 0.999(repeated) does equal 1. Its called math.

No. Just no.

> And for my next stunt, I will prove that 45,000,000,000 is the largest number possible.

45,000,000,001

:-P

Yeah. The thickened lines in the middle of the `after` photo were obviously covering something up. Plus it helps if the shapes are semi transparent too.

Not quite. Take a 4x4 block. The perimeter is 16 units, and the area is 16 square units.

Now take those 16 blocks and lay them in a straight line. The area is still 16 square units, but the perimeter is now 34 units.

Here, they tried to cover it up by thickening the hypotenuses of the triangles after they have been flipped. If you look closely, you will see that they are thicker and darker than before.

So 64 = 64. Math wins and cheaters never get ahead.
