Think you can take a picture or draw the shape?
Okay. If you're ever given something that seems unnecesary complicated, always try to take it down to something very simple. If you were given a similar problem, but it was just a rectangle or a triangle on a similar grid, could you do it?
uhh maybe. would it just be multiplying the sides?
if that is the case then can't i just make that one shape in 2 shapes.. and find out the different areas?
Right. For a rectangle to get the area you multiple the side lengths. For a right triangle you multiple the side lengths and divide by two Does this picture help at all? http://puu.sh/idZon/229348e264.png
If you can find the area of each individual shape and add them up, you'll get the whole area
So for the rectangle it would be 6x6=36 right?
Yep! 36 units squared
and for the triangle i would do... 3x3 divided by 1/2? which would be 4.5?
Which triangle are you looking at? I think you might've miscounted the side length
the one you drew.... of wait. it's 4 x 6. my bad. and then the answer would be 12?
Okay hold on
That triangle is 3 by 4. Does that make sense?
ohhhhhhhh okay, nvm omg. I was doing it the wrong way, yeah. i get it. Then it's 6.
so then the final answer is 42. okay
Wait. There are two other triangles
wait wut .-.
It's easy from here, but don't forget them haha
Sometime's it's important to look back at the bigger picture. There are 3 triangles and one rectangle
so... 3x4 div by 1/2= 6 3x6 div by 1/2= 9 6x6 div by 1/2= 18
and for the rectangle it would be 6x6=36
and the final answer is..........69 :) am I right?
Oh sorry. Umm, where are you seeinga 6x6 triangle?
Oh. Keep in mind that you only look at the bases of a right triangle for its area. So a triangle that looks like this http://puu.sh/ie16I/1549b72568.png Has bases 1x6, so it's 6x1 div by 2= 3
Other than that I think it looks good
Should be 54 rather than 69
i thought it was 56? not 54...
Oh maybe I added wrong 1 sec
36+6+9+3 36+6 = 42 42+9 = 51 51+3=54
If I'm making some dumb arithmetic mistake feel free to point it out
ohhh okay, sorry nvm
Thank you for your help!!
Okay. Any questions about what we did? Does each step make sense?
