Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes! You are correct! Actually, you can see that one corner fits perfectly into the other to make a rectangle. dw:1436932124281:dw The area is then given by 6in x 2in = 12 in ^2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are close. There are actually a lot of triangles that you could find the area of, after thinking about these these two are easier to work with... dw:1436932671767:dw The big triangle on the right has base 4cm and height 7cm. The big triangle on the left has base 4 cm and height 3 cm. Add these two areas together to get: 1/2(4cm)(7cm) + 1/2(4cm)(3cm) = 14cm^2 + 6cm^2 = 20cm^2.
