A square of side 16 cm was cut into three pieces: R a right triangle with sides of 20 cm, 16 cm and 12 cm; B is a right triangle with sides of 16 cm, 12.8 cm and 9.6 cm; V a quadrilateral with two right angles. How many different convex polygons (ie, the corners of which are all smaller than 180 degrees) can be formed ?

    Ahh that can be confusing... basically want to form convex polygons using those 3 shapes, here is one convex polygon for example : http://gyazo.com/4fb2eb362d84907e1cb572c40410ee21

    the problem is about finding all the convex polygons that can be formed using those 3 pieces

    something like that but that doesnt work because not all interior angles are less than 180 in ur example
