i dont understand how this is possible...idk maybe i'm just stupid.

first i made an 8" x 8" grid on paper with a ruler, then i cut it up and rearranged the shapes to make a 5" x 13" grid...i got really confused and decided to get on gimp and try and make it more precise, but it didn't make a difference...infact i think it's less precise than my paper model

The measurements are inconsistent. You can tell with the longer leg of the green triangle that in one side it is 7.5 "units" while on the right it is 8 units.

maybe that is just part of my crappy editing, as it works almost perfectly with paper and scissor cuts.

That would make sense though, because 64 and 65 aren't that far apart?

It is hard to explain, because you are using a non-geometrically correct way of putting things together that this is possible.

If you did it in blocks, like the green triangle would not have a straight hypotenuse but more like a step type hypotenuse (i.e. not flat) then it wouldn't have worked.

Just how it is.

Link you're all right. with a more precise model, i could see that the hypotenuse of both triangles do not touch, and combined with the angles from the other 2 polygons, the gap between all the shapes makes a very skewed parallelogram with enough space to account for 'the missing unit'

Yeah they are like one number apart...
