Hi!

Check out this diagram which proves that 64 equals 65!

In the top drawing, the large square, which is composed of 64 small squares, is divided into 4 regions labeled A, B, C and D. The same regions can be put together to form a rectangle, as shown in the bottom drawing, only this time it is composed of 65 small squares...

How is that possible? View the animation to find out.

See you soon,

Skubidu
