The square are equal. So the sides are equal. Once you put them side by side you can see the number of square sides that are on the perimeter of the rectangle. Davide the number of sides in the parameter by 360 and you should get the length of one side of a square. once you know the side length just square it to get the area of one square

so, it x is the side of each square, what is the length of AD?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x
anonymous
  • anonymous
and what is the length of AB?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5x
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what is the perimeter of the rectangle in terms of x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8x=360
anonymous
  • anonymous
how did you get 8x?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=45
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry 12x
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so x is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=30
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if x is 30, what is the area of each square?
anonymous
  • anonymous
area is 900
anonymous
  • anonymous
900 what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
square cm
