Is it only me, or do these two appear different in size? Well beleive it or not, they are both the same size and that’s a fact!

Cool!
they actually are the same size!!!

• MMM

if you make a line on the left side of the picture, and join the two things,
you realise they are the same side!

I took the longer route of going into photoshop & cuting the shape out to test it haha

I think this one works because your brain is making assumptions on the pieces being fragments of two whole circles. since the top line of the inner fragment is longer than the bottom line of the outter fragment, it must be longer. The logic works if the two circles are cut with one continuous cut. … i don’t know, that’s my theory

the bottoms of both shapes are different from the tops, and one being above the other makes it look like there different

• LOSER:)

hiii yeah im weirddd

• oooooo

I’ve seen a plastic version of this before. There are two pieces and they look different when you place them like that, but when you lay them on top of each other they are exactly the same size.

I tried to make it with paper but apparently you need to make them exactly the right shape for it to work- cos mine didnt.
