    First , divide the figure into 2 rectangles like this: |dw:1336004731947:dw| Got it so far?

    Yeah so first I divide it and time 60 x 20?

    |dw:1336005217546:dw| How do the shaded part first. How do you calculate the area for that?

    I don't want to cut it anymore, Cutting once is enough for this question :/

    You're sorry but you laugh... interesting :\ Now consider the shaded area, you can apply the formula Area = width x length , Since it is a rectangle. So Area of the shaded part, let's call it A1, = (60-20) x 10 = 40 x10 = ... Understand?

    Yes so that would be the formula and what I would do?

    That's the formula for calculating area of rectangle. you need to calculate area of the A1 and A2, then add them up. That'd be the area you want for answer PS |dw:1336005747609:dw|

    Would 400m be the answer?

    Nope, 400 is only for A2 /A1 lol You need to add A1 and A2 together :)

    So would I add 400M +400M = 800M??

    x =1 since it is a rectangle, that's the property of it. y = 7-1 =6

    Now, calculate the area of 2 rectangles. |dw:1336007524975:dw| A1 = 1 x 6 A2 = 6 x 4 like the previous one, do addition for the 2
