the two sides of the triangle, the red and green, doesn't form a line at all. they look like they are actually a single line, but they are not.

optical illusion.

I gave this to romiens last year. check the slopes of the triangles. it is not a straight line. also, look how the lines intersect the grid at different points.

It is a classic, but not impossible to solve
