Curry's Paradox

5

I remember being given this puzzle, but never the solution, back in Grade 8. Now my mind can finally rest in peace as I have finally found the solution. It turns out that there really is no geometrical trick behind this. The two triangles have a slight kink in them, either up or down, and the total area makes up for the missing square.
