print it out and then go get a pair of scissors.... Please, by all means DO run with the scissors

It really isn't all that hard. The top bows in and the bottom bulges on the hypotenuse. The empty square is the difference between bow and the bulge. Take a ruler to the hypotenuse and you will see.

Holes... Where from do they come?
Black ones, white ones, ones that never stop. Is that a hole I see or a space where nothing exists?

their is no "buldge" try again

they're not triangles. the first is a x^2 like curve, and the second is a sqrt(2) like one. the difference between the under the curve area is one block, the white one.

the orange shape has a 3 space protrusion to its right, and the green one only has 2 to its left, but both are equal in length so when put on top of each other the match, but when you put them side by side they dont match up its kinda like tetris

The red triangle and the blue/green triangle are not similar triangles. (One has a leg ratio of 3/8 = .375 and the other has a leg ration of 2/5 = .4 They are close, but when you arrange them, the bottom picture(if you fill in the hole) is slightly conve

"CRAVEN" wins. "ME"... YOU FAIL!

These triangles are not trued triangles. Look closely and you will see that the hypotenuse of the one on top bends inward, and the one on bottom bends outward.

they're right. i mean correct. if you copy the picture into ms paint and draw a line along the hypontenuse you'll see the bulge. it's so small that you won't notice it with a ruler

Is it the hypotenuse from "Madagascar"? I LOVED that movie...and the sequel was even more full of win!
