draw a line EB
now its split into a triangle and a trapezoid.
area of the triangle = 0.5 * base * height
area of the trap ezoid = (height/ 2) * sum of the parallel sides

- Aizhalee

I sure did , only welshfella is being nice to reply

- anonymous

im was trying to figure it out sorry

- Aizhalee

Ok Thank you welshfella I now see the formula used to solve the area , do i use the coordinates ?

- Aizhalee

Its ok

- anonymous

you use the boxes to count the length of a side

- welshfella

count the lines to find the length
base of triangle = 10 and height = 3

- anonymous

so 3 boxes would mean the side is 3 lengths long

- welshfella

yea

- Aizhalee

ohhh Ok I see I see . :)

- anonymous

so for the triangle you would do 3x4=12/2=6

- Aizhalee

so from the height of the trapezoid is 6 and the base is 7

- anonymous

then the other triangle would be 6x3=18/2=9

- welshfella

area of trapezoid = (6/2) * (6 + 7) = 3 * 13 = ?

- Aizhalee

Ok quick question where was the four from ? from 3*4=12

- anonymous

i split the big triangle in half and got two smaller triangles

- Aizhalee

3*13 is 39

- welshfella

oh right you are doing it a different way from me

- Aizhalee

o.o

- anonymous

ya, im just spliting the triangles in half to make it easier for me

- welshfella

right so thats the area of the trapezoid
the area of triangle AFB is 1/2 * 3 * 10 = ?

- Aizhalee

15

- anonymous

yes

- welshfella

ok so finally total area = 39 + 15 = 64

- anonymous

:D

- Aizhalee

Wow , Thank you both so much ♥ I really appreciate it :D . and sorry lucas for being a bit rude for untagging you . God bless and take care
