Just tell me what you can't read!

- Callisto

First , divide the figure into 2 rectangles like this:

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

- Callisto

Nope. divide it, you'll get this:
|dw:1336004909711:dw|

- anonymous

So I would do 60 - 20?

- Callisto

Sure you need to do that :)

- anonymous

Ok after that then what do I do (: or is that it?

- Callisto

Now, calculate the area for the rectangle and the square :|
Can you do it?

- anonymous

Hmmm, I'm not sure man I'm sorry

- Callisto

How do the shaded part first. How do you calculate the area for that?

- anonymous

Would you cut it in to pieces?

- Callisto

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

- anonymous

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

- Callisto

Nope!!! I've cut it once already!!!
Should i demonstrate how to do it?

- anonymous

Yes I'm sorry lol

- Callisto

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?

- anonymous

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

- Callisto

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

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

- Callisto

Okay !

- anonymous

Would 400m be the answer?

- Callisto

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

- anonymous

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

- Callisto

Yes!!! but the unit is not M it's m^2

- anonymous

Meters^2?

- Callisto

\[m^2\]

- anonymous

Kk, Can you help
me with 2 more?

- Callisto

Sure if i can :) But have to go in 15~20 minutes :|

- anonymous

Oh ok, The next 2 involves the same only with a figure. Here it is (:|dw:1336104085008:dw|

- Callisto

Sorry...
First cut it into 2 as you did.
|dw:1336007029176:dw|
Can you find x and y?

- anonymous

Would I add both numbers to find the x and y?

- Callisto

nope,

- anonymous

Well I'm not sure then can you help quick because I gotta go.

- Callisto

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

- Callisto

You need to go, so do I

- Callisto

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
