A tangram is a geometric puzzle made from seven pieces

that form a square. Trace the pieces, cut them out, and

answer the following questions. The puzzle can also be seen on wikipedia web site.

a. If the area of the entire square equals 1 unit, label

each piece with its rational number area.

Here is what I have and I gave each a letter to identify it:

Triangles:

2 small triangles c,e

1 medium triangle g

2 large triangles a,b

Square d

Parallelogram f

The rational number area is-

Letter a 1/4

B 1/4

C 1/16

D 1/8

E 1/16

F 1/8

G 1/8

All together this totals 1

Is this right?
