Decompose that into a rectangle and a right triangle by extending the 6 ft line down to the base. Find the area of both of those figures and add them.

Can you find the base and the height of that triangle? The area will be 1/2 * base * height.

still don'y get it.

See how the dimensions of the triangle come about? :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
yaa
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
|dw:1359846112405:dw|So we want to find the area of these two objects separately. Then we'll add those area's together to get the `total area` of the figure.

ok so i got C
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
Hmm did you forget the formula for area of a triangle maybe? :o
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
cuz C is too big :c
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk what the answer is then
anonymous

lol :)
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
well it feels like you're just guessing :) lol

i multiplide 10 and 7 i got 70 then i multiplide 4 and 2 then i got 16 then i add them together which i got 86
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
The 70 looks good. \(4 \times 2 \ne 16\) , might wanna visit Mr Calculator for that one! :O And then remember, The area of a triangle we take `half` of the base times height.

  • anonymous
woops i ment 8
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
Cool c: Just remember for a triangle,\[\large A=\frac{1}{2}b\cdot h\]
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
So we only want half of that 8 c:
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
|dw:1359846808816:dw|If we had a square like this, the area would be 8, because 4 x 2 = 8.
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
|dw:1359846855993:dw|But we have a triangle, which is half of that area.
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
still confused? <:o

  • anonymous
yes
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
aw :c
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya sorry i'm not that smart
anonymous
  • anonymous
was 74
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
im sure that's not true c: math isn't for everyone!
zepdrix
  • zepdrix
ya 74 D:
anonymous
  • anonymous
