A Sangaku dedicated to Konnoh Hachimangu (Shibuya, Tokyo) in Sangaku or San Gaku (算額; lit. translation: calculation tablet) are Japanese geometrical problems or theorems on wooden tablets which were placed as offerings at Shinto shrines or Buddhist temples during the . I recently learnt a Japanese geometry temple problem. The problem is the following: Five squares are arranged as the image shows. Prove that the area of triangle T and the area of square S are equal. This is problem 6 in this article. I am thinking about law of cosines, but I have not been able to prove the theorem. Any hints would be appreciated.
