Given are the following three equations:

1. Square Circle = Triangle

2. Square = Circle Diamond

3. Triangle Triangle = Diamond Diamond Diamond

The Question: How many circles is a square, if you take the ratios in the three given equations; in other words: how many circles should be on the dots below?

Square = ...

Answer: Square Square Square

= { according to equation 2 }

Circle Diamond Circle Diamond Circle Diamond

= { sorting }

Circle Circle Circle Diamond Diamond Diamond

= { according equation 3 }

Circle Circle Circle Triangle Triangle

= { according equation 1 }

Circle Circle Circle Square Circle Square Circle

= { sorting }

Square Square Circle Circle Circle Circle Circle

So: Square Square Square = Square Square Circle Circle Circle Circle Circle

from which follows that Square = Circle Circle Circle Circle Circle
