How can this be possible?

Re: How can this be possible?I know what the answer is, and I will post it here in a day or so, but in the meantime ... does anyone else know? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20050502 16:02:14
Re: How can this be possible?I don't think so  I suppose it depends on my explanation ... "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20050502 22:23:36
Re: How can this be possible?I know the solution. Take a closer look at both hypotenuses of the triangles. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #6 20050503 07:58:16
Re: How can this be possible?What about the hypotenuses? #7 20050503 08:51:59
Re: How can this be possible?Weeellll..., I figured it out by cutting the images into pieces (not with scissors, but on the computer), and at first I couldn't see how it worked. I thought that the slight misfits I was getting was just sloppy cutandpaste. But then I noticed what Rora is talking about ... "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #8 20050504 01:33:50
Re: How can this be possible?They've got the square there by squashing it in using the enlargement of the hypotenuse. School is practice for the future. Practice makes perfect. But  nobody's perfect, so why practice? #9 20050531 21:18:49
Re: How can this be possible?well the pic is gone now so will have to trust y'all I come back stronger than a poweredup PacMan I bought a large popcorn @ the cinema the other day, it was pretty big...some might even say it was "large Fatboy Slim is a Legend
