Sent my answer to Luke. Maybe he'll give me a car.
Howzabout a 2006 Chevy Aveo with no AC and no cruise control? Gorgeous bright orange color, though.
I figured it out! But I won't take the car, thank you very much . . .
"Of sorts" indeed. It lies to us.
Well, not really. All that it says is that the 4 sub-shapes are the same in both the top and bottom quadrilaterals, which is true. Your eyes are the liars here, since they're the ones telling you that the two quadrilaterals are triangles. Stupid eyes.
I believed my lying eyes for a couple of hours and could NOT figure out why neither figure had the area that a triangle with those dimensions should have, not to mention that they had two different areas. I kept re-checking my arithmetic until eventually, light dawned.
