A method in my lesson says to separate the rectangles, then subtract the areas of basic shapes from the area of the square.

10. Anikate

sry i dont get it but what i did is took the area of the whole rectangle then subtracted by the area of the broken part

11. Lime

\[A =\]\[A \square - A^1 - A^2\]

12. Anikate
