    The figure below shows a shaded region and a nonshaded region. Angles in the figure that appear to be right angles are right angles. A picture of a rectangle is shown. The bottom of the rectangle is labeled 16 ft. The right side of the rectangle is labeled 8 ft. At the bottom left side of the rectangle there is a label that reads 2 ft. Inside the rectangle is a shaded region. The bottom of the region is labeled 8 ft and this side is perpendicular to the left side of the rectangle. The right side of the shaded region has a perpendicular line segment extending upward that is labeled 2 ft. At the top of this line segment is another line segment perpendicular to the right that reads 2 ft. At the end of this line segment is a perpendicular line segment extending upward that reads 1 ft. There is a line segment joining the end of this line segment with the top left corner of the rectangle. What is the area, in square feet, of the shaded region? Enter your answer in the box. square feet What is the area, in square feet, of the nonshaded region? Enter your answer in the box. square feet

    Just split the shaded region into three separate shapes. Two rectangles and a right triangle. Find the area of each separate area and then add them up. To find the non-shaded area, just take the total area of the rectangle and subtract the area of the shaded region.
