The boxes which were sliced into two pieces aren`t exactly lined up in the second formation, so they are slight smaller than they should be. 65 boxes where some of them are slightly smaller = the same surface area as 64 boxes of the correct size.

Look at the top right corner; doesn`t line up correctly in the reordered grid. The rest of the issues are small to be noticeable with this resolution; each bisected box is something like 1/15 smaller.

Fancylad if f.ucking stupid

Also, tiger penis powder does not improve male perfromance, -fyi before you post that.-

My brain just broke.

And those of you with a decent level of math smarts, prepare to be annoyed at seeing this old trick again.

Took about 30 minutes of relearning the stuff and the calculations. There is a parallelogram in the middle. It`s area is exactly 1 unit square.

Could post picture of the calculations, but don`t feel like its really necessary as most people just know there is a small space is in there.

Predictable moaning aside, this is a nice take on an old puzzle that I hadn`t seen before. Good link, Fancy.

The area of the gaps is equal to one square.

The area of this bulge is a triangle whose sides are the hypotenuses of the red, blue, and 5x13 triangle. If you use the pythagorean theorem to find the value of each hypotenuse (e.g. the hypotenuse of the red triangle is sqrt(3^2+8^2)=8.544), you can then plug those values into Heron`s formula (look it up if for some reason you don`t know it yet still care) to find the area of the triangle, which is 0.5. Do the same thing for the green triangle and orange trapezoid, which have the same dimensions, and you`ll get another 0.5.

0.5+0.5=1. Boom. I found your missing square.
