That is the closest I could draw

Haha ok

Let me try and work it out

you will need to work these out first:

Ok im working it out

So isn't the piece missing a 2 by 3?

yes :)

Ok so now what so I do?

what is the area of the piece that was cut out?

6ft. I mean

correct - 6 ft^2
now subtract 6 from the area of the original whole rectangle

would it be 64 - 6 = 58?

where did you get 64 from?

because 4x8 twice from before you cut out that piece of plywood

why "twice"?

|dw:1347408897668:dw|

Or is it just multiplied once

like 4x8 once - 6

what is the area of a rectangle with length L and width W?

Before you cut out the piece?

Yeah maybe.. :P

So then 80?

Yeah I forgot how to do this from last year.... :P

But I think I'm catching on! :)

80?

are you sure - look again and what we said above...

ok

what is the length and width of the original rectangle?

So wasnt it 8x8=64 4x4=16 64+16=80?

|dw:1347409394610:dw|

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! OK!! :D Sooo 32?

:) that is correct

now just subtract from this the area of the piece that was cut out

so? 26?

peeeeeerrrrfect!

Yahooo!!!!

I'm sure with some practice you'll become a maths wizard very soon
