I have I trouble that I came up v while modifying a picture in Photoshop. I have actually a square image and also want to divide it evenly right into 3 pieces. It requirements to be divided radially native the facility (each line 120° indigenous the others) and the divisions can be rotated any type of amount favor the spokes top top a wheel. I attached an example image, yet the "spokes" don't must be in the position I put them in. I have a few questions that i don't recognize the price to:

a. Have the right to the square be separated into 3 equal pieces this way?

b. If so, is there only certain positions the the "spokes" where this is possible, or is it possible under every conceivable rotation that the "spokes"?

This might be a straightforward problem because that a geometer, trigonometer, or maybe even someone with basic math skills, yet I'm a biologist and also haven't been able to job-related out the systems for myself.

Thanks for the response. Are you saying the they're not equal for this instance or under any type of rotation the the spokes?. What if us rotated the spokes to make all the divisions into quadrilaterals through a solitary right angle? choose this: https://imgur.com/NqGV102. These 2 rotations are arbitrary. I'm yes, really interested in if it's even feasible to divide the square same this way.
