the area= x^2

5. anonymous

idk what to do

6. anonymous

x^2=3^2+6^2=9+36=45

You sure about that @AJ01 ?

yes

the shaded region is square the square area= L^2 so you need the length of L from the plot L is hyp of right triangle

I think it would go something like this: Since all sides are the same, it is a square: Adding the sides, 9. So the area of the square is 9^2=81 To find the shaded, you need to subtract the unshaded, which are triangles with a height of 6 and base of 3, and there are 4: $$\Large 9^2-4(\frac{1}{2}*6*3)$$ $$\Large 81-4(9)$$ $$\Large 81-36$$ And yesss
