does this work? don't you have to separate with the units whole?

I Understand this. But 64 cant be 65, or 64 would be 65. But 64 is just 64. And thats all.

The easiest way to explain this is that in the final configuration, the two lines comprising the tops of the green and orange shapes do not together form a straight line. The slope of a line is the rise divided by the run. The line atop the green triangle has a rise of 3 and a run of 8, and therefore, a slope of 0.375. The line atop the orange shape has a rise of 2 and a run of 5, and therefore, a slope of 0.4.

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))

whoever thinks this works is dumb, when you multiply something it wont make the same answer as something else, 8x8=64 5x13=65
