- the area of the medium triangle is twice the area of the small triangle

## Fractionization!

*fractions*of the square that they form in the picture. Compare the areas of the pieces and answer the following questions.

If the *big square*, built using all the Tangram pieces, represents *one whole*, assign a fraction value to each of the other Tangram pieces.
Explain your answer.

Among the Tangram pieces there are two (congruent) *small triangles*: if one of them represents *one
whole*, assign a fraction value to each of the other Tangram pieces.
In this case, the values corresponding to the other pieces are integers or fractions?
Explain your answer.

Among the Tangram pieces there is a *small square*: if it represents *one whole*, assign a fraction value to each of the other Tangram pieces.
Explain your answer.

Among the Tangram pieces there is a *medium triangle*: if it represents *one whole*, assign a fraction value to each of the other Tangram pieces.
Explain your answer.
