Hey :) So umm.. how bout break it up into some more manageable shapes?
okay, how should we start doing that?
|dw:1440473225733:dw|
Are we wanting to divide it into 3 shapes or just however many we can make ?
Well I'm thinking like this maybe:|dw:1440473387371:dw|because rectangles and right triangles are really easy to deal with :)
Do you understand how to find the coordinates of each point?
Or rather I should say: Do you understand how to use the coordinates to find the side lengths?
Okay(: So what is our first step? sorry im really not good at this. I think so isn't that do you count like up and down along y axis and and left to right on x axis ?
`Provide specific details in your answer, including coordinates and descriptions of shapes used. Then, find the actual area of the figure.` Yes, counting the squares is a much better way of doing it, but it looks like they want us to include coordinates and all of that business :(
ughh :( okay so then how do we do that ?
|dw:1440473666198:dw|Do you understand how I came up with these two coordinates?
For B you counted up 8 and counted left 11 units For C you counted left 11 units but the zero you didnt move at all ?
Yes, those distances. But your 'directions' seem backwards lol :) For B you count 8DOWN and 11RIGHT. We're starting from the point (0,0) and going towards B. I think you did it the other way around.
Oh boy this is gonna be tricky... I wonder if there is a simpler way we can chop this up...
Oh your right i did my bad lol(: Hmmm could we do AC and that be a right triangle ? would that be an easier way to chop it up ?
|dw:1440474034288:dw|Hmm prolly not :) that leaves us with a nasty shape here
Are you comfortable with trapezoids?
|dw:1440474081780:dw|Cause maybe this would be easier
kinda , im deffinetly gonna need help though
So does that mean what we did with B and C earlier...forget that ?
It'll end up saving us some steps since we don't have to find all these little shapes in the middle. Just three now. To find the area of a trapezoid, we multiply the base length by the average of the side/height lengths.\[\large\rm A=b\cdot\frac{h_1+h_2}{2}\] How long is side BC?
I thought 11 units , correct?
|dw:1440474292576:dw|I'm just gonna label all of the points that we'll need.
|dw:1440474388966:dw|
from 0 down to -8
so would the height be -8 and 0 for BC
The height is the distance from 0 to -8. That ends up being a distance of 8 if you count the boxes, ya?
Yes your right, im just trying to plug in the h1 and h2 too quick lol sorry
|dw:1440474556848:dw|How bout from D down the bottom? You're at -3 and you're going down to -8, how many boxes between those?
Make sure you're using the original image :) Mine kinda stinks since you can't count the boxes lol
Okay(: Would that be 5?
|dw:1440474733035:dw|Good :O Then the base? Looks like we're going from x=6 over to x=11
would the base be 6?
We're going from 6 to 11. You can do subtraction if you feel more comfortable with that. 11-6 = 5 So a length of 5 across the bottom.
Okay i must have counted wrong, so now i plug in the numbers?
\[\large\rm A=b\cdot\frac{h_1+h_2}{2}\qquad\to\qquad A_1=5\cdot\frac{5+8}{2}\]Plug all the information in! :) What do we get for the area of our first shape? Yah sorry I stole some of the fun there, just trying to move this along hehe.
Haha its okay(: so then it would be 13/2 = 6.5 then 6.5 X5 = 32.5 SO would our answer be 32.5?
|dw:1440475130927:dw|Ok great! We're 1/3 done lol
Great(: ! So now do we do the same thing to the other shape ?
Let's ignore the coordinates for now. Just use those in your explanation maybe :p|dw:1440475216912:dw|
Yes, let's work on this trapezoid in the bottom left here. Can you figure out the side lengths by counting the boxes?
That would be 2 if your counting up and if your counting left then that would be 5
Hmm 5 doesn't sound quite right.
Then im confused i counted to the F and it was 5 units
|dw:1440475453452:dw|
Oh i see my mistake, i moissed one, my bad :/
So we have our information again, good. \(\large\rm h_1=1,\quad h_2=6,\quad b=2\) plug it in to find the area of your second shape.
One question first, how did you get the 1?
A = 7?
|dw:1440475703801:dw|
So that length is 1 from 5 to 6, ya? :o
Oh yeah your right , duhhh(: so my answer would be 7 correct ?
|dw:1440475843531:dw|Mmmmmm k good. let's try to figure out this last one. Luckily we have a free side already! Since this trapezoid shares a side with the bottom one, we know that the long edge is still 6.
What about the other lengths? :o
well from D to E that would be 2
the other length would be 3
|dw:1440476101788:dw|Ok good! :)
h1 = 3 h2 = 6 b=2?
The h's should be across from one another.
b= 3 and h2= 2
Im sorry , for the confusion im just trying to understand .. so the answer would be 12?
|dw:1440476358788:dw|Good. And the total area would be the sum of those three areas. \(\large\rm A=A_1+A_2+A_3\)
yayyyy team \c:/ we did it!
51.5 ??
sounds correct!
Yayyyy(: thank you soooo much for your help i really really appreciate it!
