**bobpursley**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 4:57pmNo, they are different sizes. how can you possibly say they are the same size.

B. If piece a, whichever that one is, then compare the other sizes to it.

**B.B.**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 8:06pmI am totally lost on this problem. Here is my new answers but I am sure that they are wrong. Part A; a. 1/2 b. 1/2 c. 1/3 d. 1/4 e. 1/3 f. 1/4 g. 1/3 Part B I am really lost on. Thanks for your help.

**bobpursley**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 8:49pma and b add to 1, the entire area is one. So they can't be right. THe sum of all the pieces is 1.

**B.B.**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 9:16pmSo does a and b need to be a different fraction?

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 9:23pmWhat colors in this diagram are you labeling a and b?

**B.B.**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 9:26pmThe big orange is a and the big green is b.

**Ms. Sue**, Friday, July 10, 2009 at 11:00pmThe big orange and the big green are both the same size.

Each of them makes up 1/4 of the puzzle. Together they make up 1/2 of the Tangram.

**B.B.**, Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 12:44pmOk. If that is the case, how would I go about figuring up the other pieces? Because c is the dark red triangle and e is the purple triangle. The yellow square is d and the blue parallelogram is f. Thanks.

**B.B.**, Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 1:22pmWould that make c and e 2/6 of the puzzle? Together would they make a 1/3 of the Tangram?

**B.B.**, Saturday, July 11, 2009 at 5:18pmI think that I have this tangram figured out. The big organe triangle is letter (a) and the big green triangle is letter (b) the dark red triangle is letter (c) the purple triangle is (e) the yellow square is letter (d) the parallelogram is letter (f) and the medium organ triangle is letter (g).Part A : The area of a and b is 1/2, the area of c and e are 1/4, the area of d is 1/2, the area of f is 1/2 and the area of g is 1/2.Part B: The area of the piece of (a) equals 1 unit label is as following: a and b is 1/4, c and e is 1/16, d is 1/8, f is 1/8 and g is 1/8. Is this correct or do I have part A and part B switched?
