Here’s a nice math brain-teaser to start out the week. It seems that our friends in China have come up with a mind-bending animation that seemingly shows you can create extra area in a figure by deconstructing the figure and putting it back together in another configuration.
We know that mathematically and physically, that can’t happen! So click to watch the animation below and try to figure out where the “trick” in the animation is. You know how on the SAT, figures are often “Not Drawn to Scale?” First five people to come up with the correct answer and comment on this post will receive a Veritas Prep T-shirt or a copy of SAT 2400 in Just 7 Steps!
