The CyberSquad cannot make a big enough square with the rods it has available, so Jackie suggests making a triangle. The group successfully forms a triangle and then attempts to make a square with two triangles unsuccessfully. When Digit creates a right triangle, the group tries again to combine the triangles into a square. This time, it is successful, and Jackie explans how to know they've formed a proper square.
