Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The figure below shows a shaded region and a nonshaded region. Angles in the figure that appear to be right angles are right angles. A picture of a rectangle is shown. The bottom of the rectangle is labeled 16 ft. The right side of the rectangle is labeled 8 ft. At the bottom left side of the rectangle there is a label that reads 2 ft. Inside the rectangle is a shaded region. The bottom of the region is labeled 8 ft and this side is perpendicular to the left side of the rectangle. The right side of the shaded region has a perpendicular line segment extending upward that is labeled 2 ft. At the top of this line segment is another line segment perpendicular to the right that reads 2 ft. At the end of this line segment is a perpendicular line segment extending upward that reads 1 ft. There is a line segment joining the end of this line segment with the top left corner of the rectangle. What is the area, in square feet, of the shaded region? Enter your answer in the box. square feet What is the area, in square feet, of the nonshaded region? Enter your answer in the box. square feet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and judging by the problem, I'm guessing that this part is shaded?dw:1440102795581:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the diagram tells us that rectangle A has length 8 and width 3, so the area of rectangle A = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1area of a rectangle = length*width = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, now we find the area of rectangle B length = 2, width = 1, so area of rectangle B = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, now add the two areas together: area of A + area of B = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because its a 2 not a 3 .. so 8*2 not 8*3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can see that the area of the big rectangle = shaded + unshaded we have shaded, and we want to find unshaded. let's start by finding the area of the big rectangle the rectangle has width 8 and length 16, so area = ?

Vocaloid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right. area of big rectangle = 128 so unshaded = area of big rectangle  shaded = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the nonshaded area is 102 feet
