If you cut the triangle in half, and then stack it on top of the other, and divide up the rectangle, it could be \[\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }\]
I'm just asking for the total area of the rectangle for now. The sides of the rectangle are x and x+2. So what is the area?
(x)(x + 2)
Great, now we try to find the area of the triangle. Any ideas?
(Two times x divided by two.)
Well that happens to be the area of the total triangle which is great! So now to get the fraction we can write\[{areaOfTriangle\over TotalArea}\]
\[{x\over(x)(x+2)}\]x's cancel.
Oh, okay.
Does that make sense? Did you understand?
I think I might. |dw:1367591373451:dw|
\[{1\over x+2}\]
The fraction for the triangle is \[\frac{ 1 }{ x + 2 }\] Yes?
That is the answer to the question, yes
For the fraction of the rectangle shaded?
Thank you!
