Cut it just like a pizza. Cut it from the middle top to the middle bottom and from the middle left side to the middle right side. You should have four smaller squares all of equal size. Now cut each square diagonally to make 8 triangles. All 8 triangles are the same size. -- Place two diagonals from corner to corner or the square -- this is basically slicing the square into four, equal triangular quadrants. Then slice each of those triangles in half. That makes 8 triangles of equal area.
