Static squares

In this movie, we surround F and A by identical, touching, squares.
We can see that the image of the square around F is a parallelogram, so the image of A will be surrounded by an identical, touching, parallelogram.
[We can thus find the image of A without finding the invariant line and shear factor.]

On the next page we take this approach a step further.
