The red and green triangles don't have the same slope.

Yep... This puzzle has often been destroyed by representing it in inferior resolution. In your pictures one might just about figure it out though.

Yes, they've covered it up by using those thick black outlines. Draw it for yourself on a piece of graph paper. You should see that the long side of the compound triangle is concave in the top arrangement and convex in the bottom one.
