Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1328578695789:dw (all the triangles are equal) so i divided 328 in half to get the one side. the other side i subtracted 550328, then divided it by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then i just did normal area for a triangle 1/2BH and so A=1/2(164)(111) for the square, i just did base times height, so 328x328 i added those two together and got my area
