 Since the mediumsize triangle has area one square unit and each of the small triangles has area onehalf square unit, the mediumsize square has area two square units:
 Since the parallelogram has area one square unit and each of the small triangles has area onehalf square unit, the mediumsize rectangle has area two square units:
 Since the mediumsize triangle (or the parallelogram) has area one square unit and each of the small triangles has area onehalf square unit, the large triangle has area two square units:
 The small square, the mediumsize triangle, and the parallelogram each have area one square unit. These together with the two small triangles (each of which has area onehalf square unit) make a square with area four square units:
 Since each of the two large triangles has area two square units, half the large square has area four square units; therefore the large square has area eight square units:
 The parallelogram (or the mediumsize triangle) has area one square unit. This together with a small triangle (which has area onehalf square unit) makes a trapezoid with area oneandahalf square units:
 The large triangle has area two square units. This together with the mediumsize triangle (or two small triangles) makes a trapezoid with area three square units:
 The large triangle has area two square units and the small triangle has area onehalf square unit, so the pentagon (or any congruent pentagon) has area twoandahalf square units:
 The mediumsize triangle and the parallelogram each have area one square unit and the two small triangles each have area onehalf square unit, so the pentagon has area three square units:
