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:
2 small triangles c,e
1 medium triangle g
2 large triangles a,b
The rational number area is-
Letter a 1/4
All together this totals 1
Is this right?
