Someone tell me how this works...

Some of you have probably seen it already, but I've been thinking on this for the past hour and a half, but how does this work?

How does this work?

It is not a triangle, but a quadrilateral. The slopes of the two triangles forming the top of the pseudo-triangle are not equal. Slope of the red is 3/8, and the slope of the teal is 2/5. The extra unit of area comes here (well, something like this):

Yes, the so called "hypoteneuse" of a assembled "triangle" is in not a straight line because the slopes of the red and green triangles are not the same. The hole comes from the space taken up by the little sliver of a triangle, as shown in the picture Shok posted.

Well if counted all the blocks (pretty colors), measured all to within 5,000,000,000 milliacraps and then took into account the theory of relativity with the suns coordinates to Venus and the answer is:

That is really weird. I guess it makes sense, but it is still weird how that happens.

That is pretty cool. I took piece of paper and tried to make one. What can I say? I was bored.
By the way, did he figure it out?
