View the video below and observe what happens. Can you tell where did the extra chocolate come from?


Now, explore the GeoGebra applet below by moving point A (up and down) and moving points B and C along the diagonal.

  1. What do you observe about the video and the applet?
  2. Are the video and applet similar?
