Sue has to cut her grandma's grass this weekend and wants to know exactly how much area she will be cutting. Calculate the area of the polygon. Be sure to show all your work and explain your answer.

anonymous
  • anonymous
So you have no ideas at all at this point?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No im sorry... im just confused.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok, ok... and what math is this?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes..
anonymous
  • anonymous
I mean like is this Algebra or geometry or what?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like which class
anonymous
  • anonymous
geometry i think
anonymous
  • anonymous
its 6th grade math
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhhhhhhhh I see
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah
anonymous
  • anonymous
And this picture is the exact picture?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes but i made it on here where it says draw
anonymous
  • anonymous
One of your sides says 25ft, but another side that is shorter says 35ft. Im just wondering ifthat was a typo?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No its exact

Usually with a compound polygon like that, you try to divide it into two or more smaller simpler polygons whose areas you know how to calculate. For example, divide it into rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know that part but i just dont know how i should do it i dont wanna do it wrong. @mathstudent55
anonymous
  • anonymous
Also one of your sides is cut off so i cant see the measure
anonymous
  • anonymous
Its all the way to the right
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041096387:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
its is 43ft
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041125332:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
the middle rectangle would be 8*35
anonymous
  • anonymous
uh huh
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041171151:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is 43-35?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8
anonymous
  • anonymous
good job!
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041240323:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
what is 8*8/2?
anonymous
  • anonymous
32?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes good job!
anonymous
  • anonymous
(:
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041311588:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
you understand why we did that, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes to find that area
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes becaues the area of a triangle is 1/2*Base*Hieght
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know what 35*8 is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
280 i think
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
and you know what 33-8 is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
25
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041496831:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you know how to do the rest?
anonymous
  • anonymous
add 280 + 25+ 32 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041595334:dw| We still have to find that triangle
anonymous
  • anonymous
25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, its side is 25. We have to find its other side and multiply the two and divide by two
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
um
anonymous
  • anonymous
How dpo we find it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-do
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434041926192:dw| You're sure that side "X" is actually 25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmmmmmm
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1434042045583:dw| If the other side is 43, then how can that one be 25?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i didnt create the question its on my worksheet
anonymous
  • anonymous
But are you sure that you copied the question right??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i have it with me
anonymous
  • anonymous
lets see if @mathstudent55 can help us
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright
anonymous
  • anonymous
Bump the question up to the top real quick
anonymous
  • anonymous
thank you though for attempting to help me when the question was a bit confusing.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
its loading hold on
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
there
anonymous
  • anonymous
one sec im going to be right back
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
help please?
anonymous
  • anonymous
and you're absolutely %100 sure that the problem is copied exactly??
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes i promise
anonymous
  • anonymous
is the problem multiple choice?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no written
anonymous
  • anonymous
well... i dunno... If i were you i would assume the other side to be 25. Then do 1/2*25*25. and then add 280 and 32 to it
anonymous
  • anonymous
i cant assume i need to know because i need to get it correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
then call the other side "X" and do 1/2*25*X. and then add on 280 and 32
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just need help understanding and doing it...
anonymous
  • anonymous
im just going to close question and start over
anonymous
  • anonymous
hold on, brb
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok

area of triangle: 1/2 * b * h = 1/2 * 25 * 27 = 337.5 ft^2 area of trapezoid: 1/2 * (a + b)h = 1/2 * (43 + 35)(8) = 312 ft^2 total area: 337.5 ft^2 + 312 ft^2 = 649.5 ft^2
anonymous

so the answer is 649.5?
