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?

Would you cut it in to pieces?
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
I don't want to cut it anymore, Cutting once is enough for this question :/

Hmm ok after cutting it onces would that make half of ten 5?

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Nope!!! I've cut it once already!!! Should i demonstrate how to do it?

Yes I'm sorry lol

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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, = (6020) x 10 = 40 x10 = ... Understand?
 2 years ago

28Tylerr Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yes so that would be the formula and what I would do?
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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

Ok give me a min and I will tell ya what I come up with

Would 400m be the answer?
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Nope, 400 is only for A2 /A1 lol You need to add A1 and A2 together :)
 2 years ago

28Tylerr Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
So would I add 400M +400M = 800M??
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes!!! but the unit is not M it's m^2

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Sorry... First cut it into 2 as you did. dw:1336007029176:dw Can you find x and y?
 2 years ago

28Tylerr Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Would I add both numbers to find the x and y?
 2 years ago

28Tylerr Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Well I'm not sure then can you help quick because I gotta go.
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
x =1 since it is a rectangle, that's the property of it. y = 71 =6

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You need to go, so do I
 2 years ago

Callisto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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
