A Mathematical anomaly
A friend introduced me to this mathematical anomaly .

I don’t know what it is , what it means

But there is something cool

Interesting about it :

When you divide any number by 7

You get the same repeating series of numbers

1/7=.1428571
2/7=.2587142
3/7=.4285714

What is this ?

any one know ?

Multiply 9 by any number and the value always is nine.

Re: A Mathematical anomaly
numbers have these anamolies because there is fundamentally no such thing as a number, but rather a single geometric placeholder for quantifiable relationships.

We only separate numbers into distinct units in order to make that geometric placeholder tractable.

Thing of the geometric placeholder as a the "rotating ball" of an electric typewriter.

A letter is "rolled" into position at the command of the event (the typists selection). But there are no distinct letters on the ball: just a specialized embossing made distinct by the impact that raised embossing makes through the ribbon on to the paper.

Our reality is that paper.

I redrawed it on a piece of chequered paper (mistrustfull) but in vain. I have not the solution. It is not about the equality of surfaces, it does not matter if the hypotenuse is precisely straight or not.
BTW I apologize to the original author (unknown for me) for copyright violation, but the riddle is around very long. I hope it had not been somebody from Thales generation.

Yes it does matter if the hypotenuse is strait. That small lack of surface area in the crocked hypotenuse accounts for exactly 1 square :)

It does.

In the upper image, the hypotenuse is concave - In the lower image, it is convex. The triangles have slightly different areas - hence the spare square.

The answer to the riddle is the "relationship" each side of the colored blocks have with each other and a unlimted shared space (ie, the riddle wouldn't exist if the space wasn't allowed to increase inside the notch".

surface area.

if you look at the 2 internal triangles, their slope is not exactly the same, therefore, you do not have a straight line in one case, accounting for the extra space when re-arranged.

who knows the solution?

The hypotenuse isn't straight.
Quoting: Nothing is true

Assume each square = 1 inch

hypotenuse of red triangle=sq root of 8sq*3sq=8.544003745
hypotenuse of green triangle=sq root of 5sq*2sq=5.385164807
Thus length of red and green hypotenuses = 8.544003745+5.385164807=13.92916855

BUT:

hypotenuse whole triangle = Sqrt(13sq+5sq)=13.92838828

Therefore, there is a difference of 0.00078028 between length of
whole triangle sqrt(13sq+5sq) and combined hypotenuses of the red
and green hypotenuses (red) sqrt(8sq+3sq) + (green) sqrt(5sq+2sq)...

This creates an inperceptable bulge in the top triangle hypotenuse
and an inperceptable sag in the lower triangle hypotenuse.
