Part A: Describe how you can decompose this shape into triangles. (2 points) Part B: What would be the area of each triangle? (5 points) Part C: Using your answers above, determine the area of the table's surface. (3 points)

@myininaya could you help?
myininaya
  • myininaya
|dw:1438911344280:dw|
myininaya
  • myininaya
and i bet this is a regular polygon that means all side lengths are equal
myininaya
  • myininaya
|dw:1438911426828:dw|
myininaya
  • myininaya
can you decompose this thingy into triangles
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes you can decompose it into 6 triangles
myininaya
  • myininaya
so like this by the way my polygon is horribly drawn |dw:1438911736430:dw| anyways each of these triangles is suppose to be the same shape as each other
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
it looks good
myininaya
  • myininaya
is we divide 12 by 2 what do we get
anonymous
  • anonymous
6
myininaya
  • myininaya
i mean if not is but yes right
myininaya
  • myininaya
|dw:1438911861761:dw||dw:1438911866930:dw|
myininaya
  • myininaya
actually we didn't need that :p
myininaya
  • myininaya
|dw:1438911894424:dw| what is the base of this triangle?
myininaya
  • myininaya
base length that is
anonymous
  • anonymous
10.4
myininaya
  • myininaya
well that is the height of triangle I tried to darken
myininaya
  • myininaya
what is the base length
anonymous
  • anonymous
12
myininaya
  • myininaya
perfect
myininaya
  • myininaya
do you know how to find the area of a triangle given its height is 10.4 and its base is in 12 and just pretend i put the units is inches for each of those :p
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes a=1/2* b*h
myininaya
  • myininaya
right so .5*12*10.4 =?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i thought it was 1/2 * 10.4 *12?
myininaya
  • myininaya
it is I just didn't feel like writing a fraction 1/2 is the same as .5
myininaya
  • myininaya
they are the same number
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so the answer is 62.4
myininaya
  • myininaya
yes earlier you told me you had 6 of those triangles though
myininaya
  • myininaya
so you could do 62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4 or just do 6(62.4)
anonymous
  • anonymous
374.4
myininaya
  • myininaya
|dw:1438912272702:dw|
myininaya
  • myininaya
yep
myininaya
  • myininaya
that is right
myininaya
  • myininaya
and just to be more concise we are going to be in^2 at the end
myininaya
  • myininaya
area has units squared
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the area of the area of each triangle is 62.4?
myininaya
  • myininaya
well in^2
myininaya
  • myininaya
but yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
myininaya
  • myininaya
not bad right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
honestly it seemed harder but you made it easier
myininaya
  • myininaya
i'm glad i could make things easier for ya
myininaya
  • myininaya
peace
anonymous
  • anonymous
Bye (: Thanks
