Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First , divide the figure into 2 rectangles like this: dw:1336004731947:dw Got it so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah so first I divide it and time 60 x 20?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nope. divide it, you'll get this: dw:1336004909711:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I would do 60  20?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure you need to do that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok after that then what do I do (: or is that it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, calculate the area for the rectangle and the square : Can you do it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm, I'm not sure man I'm sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1336005217546:dw How do the shaded part first. How do you calculate the area for that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would you cut it in to pieces?

Callisto

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm ok after cutting it onces would that make half of ten 5?

Callisto

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You'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?

28Tylerr

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes so that would be the formula and what I would do?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok give me a min and I will tell ya what I come up with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would 400m be the answer?

Callisto

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

28Tylerr

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So would I add 400M +400M = 800M??

Callisto

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Kk, Can you help me with 2 more?

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ok, The next 2 involves the same only with a figure. Here it is (:dw:1336104085008:dw

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

28Tylerr

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would I add both numbers to find the x and y?

28Tylerr

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I'm not sure then can you help quick because I gotta go.

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

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to go, so do I

Callisto

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, 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
