### Transformation of a polygon to a square

The transformations described so far show easily how to transform a polygon into a square of the same area.
Initially we decompose the polygon into triangles and we transform
each one of these into rectangle:

Next we transform each one of the rectangles into a square:

Finally we transform each two squares into a square, until
arriving at an only square with area equal to the sum of the areas
of the initial squares:

The square obtained at the end has area equal to thearea of
the initial polygon, since all the transformations had been made
preserving the areas.
