Solution

Solution Ghost Hole
Ghost hole

If you could stack square A on the top of ‘square’ B, you’d see a tiny difference (in red, see above). This difference represents the area of the hole in ‘square’ B. So nothing disappeared, the missing piece is just redistributed in the whole area of ‘square’ B (square B isn’t actually a square, but a rectangle).
