The Tangram is a Chinese puzzle from the beginning of 1800, made of 7 polygonal pieces (called "tans"), that must be put together to form different shapes. The 7 polygons that form the Tangram are: - 5 right triangles - 1 square - 1 parallelogram The rules of the Tangram puzzle are very simple: - all 7 pieces must be used - no pieces can overlap - pieces can be rotated or flipped
