3. kugler97

you would take length times width so you would take 10 times 10 times15 times 15 so it would equal 22500 as the final answer!!!

|dw:1358984436043:dw| this half circle is cut out of the right side though... sorry for the confusion

5. kugler97

oh!! ok lol well then you would take 10 times 15 divided by 2 and you would get 75!! you would divide by two for the half of the circle!!! lol

6. nicimistry

lol okay thanks sooo much!! :)

7. kugler97

welcome fann me?!? lol

8. nicimistry

@Kugler97 I'm afraid you're wrong. To find the area of this shape, you need to multiply the sides, but then find the area of the half circle. To do this, you square the radius of the circle, half of ten is five, so the radius is 5. So 25 x pi=~78.54. since only half of the circle is removed from the rectangle. you divide by 2= 39.27 ft sq. which you then subtract from 150 to get the actual area.
