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 ?

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?

ughh :( okay so then how do we do that ?

|dw:1440473666198:dw|Do you understand how I came up with these two coordinates?

Oh boy this is gonna be tricky...
I wonder if there is a simpler way we can chop this 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 ?

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

Yes your right, im just trying to plug in the h1 and h2 too quick lol sorry

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?

Okay i must have counted wrong, so now i plug in the numbers?

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 ?

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 :/

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 ?

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?

yayyyy team \c:/
we did it!

51.5 ??

sounds correct!

Yayyyy(: thank you soooo much for your help i really really appreciate it!
