Abstract

In this paper, we investigate certain mathematical relationships from a geometric perspective. We prove these relationships in one or more of the following ways, algebraic, geometric, and dissection proofs. Specifically, dissection proofs are aesthetically pleasing since they use tessellations that are found in many art forms such as paintings, quilting, and architecture to name a few.
