    I believe you'll find the two smaller triangles don't have the same slope for their hypotenuse, so, although subtle, neither overall shape is a real triangle.

    A the lovely dissapearing square. The fact is that the second triangle is actually a quadrilateral. This is because the dark green and red triangles are not similar at all and thus will not form a straight line. However your eye is not a precise instrument and fools you into thinking it is straight because it it so close.

    The composite figures are same for both of the triangles bt the overall area is not same visually. What could be the logic here?

    Again, the shapes are not actually triangles. It is subtle, but the sub-triangles are not of the same slope, meaning that there is not a single continuous line from bottom left to top right. This is instead a quadrilateral that looks like a triangle to the eye.
