Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess so when I find the area for a square and two triangles I add it up or multiply it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2add adding is the same a "gluing" the pieces together to get the original shape.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@phi so would I split the shape into one triangle and one rectangle and find the area , and when I find the area of both I add the two together and that is my area for the shape

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2add the two blue lines in the picture. then count how many "boxes" tall and wide the "rectangle" is (it is actually a square) find its area. (base * height)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2*add the blue lines: I mean draw them in to form two triangles and a square

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a square and two triangles :/ why cant it be one triangle and one rectangle

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2a rectangle has equal opposite sides. if we just do this (see fig2) the bottom figure is a trapezoid (the bottom is 7 wide and the top is 6 wide.. not a rectangle) if you know how to find the area of a trapezoid you can do that... but I was thinking it is easier to add a second blue line to the picture (see the first figure I posted) because you should know the formula for areas of rectangles (or square) and triangles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@phi I will find the area of one triangle and one trapezoid and add it up then come back over and if don't mind if you can check that I did it correctly.

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok. but you can check by dividing the trapezoid into a rectangle and triangle. That also will give the correct answer. If you get the same answer, you probably got it right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0am having trouble finding the area for the triangle but the area of the trapezoid is 39

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, 39 for the bottom trapezoid shape. how wide is the triangle (i.e. what is its base) ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2put your finger on point F, and count how many boxes to get to B

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes. now count up from the base to point A

phi
