# The pieces of Tangrams have been rearranged to make the given shape.

By observing the given shape, answer the following questions:

• What percentage of total has been coloured?

(i) Red (R) = _________

(ii) Blue (B) = ________

(iii) Green (G) = _______

• Check that the sum of all the percentages calculated above should be 100.

• If we rearrange the same pieces to form some other shape, will the percentage of colours change?

Answer :

1) Total coloured shape = + + + + + + = 1

i) Red coloured shape = + + =

Percentage of Red coloured = × 100%

= = 37.5%

ii) Blue coloured shape = + =

Percentage of blue coloured shape = × 100%

= × 100%

iii) Green coloured shape = +

=

Percentage of green coloured shape = × 100%

= × 100%

2) Sum of all percentages calculated = Percentage of red coloured + percentage of blue coloured + percentage of green coloured

= 37.5 + 50 + 12.5

= 100%

3) If we rearrange the same pieces to form some other shape, the percentage of colours will not change, because we just rearrange the parts and not changing the percentage of colours.
