Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hi ZyairaBoyd :) Is it regular pentagon?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it seems too. So just ignore EB and EC. As you know regular pentagon always have same sides and here one side is given that is 10cm. If it is regular pentagon then it must have all sides with 10cm. Right? And area of regular pentagon is\[\large A=1.72x^2\] substitute x=10cm\[\large A=1.72(10cm)^2\]\[\large A=1.72(100cm^2)\]\[\large A=172cm^2\]If and only if it is a regular pentagon. Otherwise it is wrong..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. Let us see if it is not a regular pentagon. Be with me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They want you to solve this with triangles. First, notice that solving for triangle ECB is the easiest. It's just \[{1 \over2}\cdot 10\cdot 13=65\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then, since EB=EC=4, the areas of triangles EBA and triangle ECD are the same. and are given by \[{1 \over 2}\cdot 15\cdot 4=30\]Since there are two of these triangles, we have an area of 60.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now we add \(60+65=125\) To get the overall area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We have three triangles with area 65, 30, and 30. If we add them, we get 125.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That looks correct to me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so now all i have to do is add them all together correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1334855745714:dw here you see i worked out all of the sides by doing some halving. so... you can see the top triangles are 4cmx7.5cm to find the area times them which equals 30 if you notice, it now needs halving but 30 is the equivilant of the area of two of those triangles so you dont need to half it. its the same with the 13cmx5cm triangle 13x5=65 then you need to finally find the area of the last one... which is the same as the first... so to find the area of the shape you need to do... 30+65+30=........answer.....=125!!!!!!!!! hope it helped?
