did you try breaking it up into rectangles and triangles?
Yes, I was trying to break it up into triangles, and I've determined that there's four but I wasn't sure.
Alright, that helps a lot more.
Do we have to find the area of all of them now?
yes, then add up the individual areas
Without numbers on the shape, how do I solve for the area?
use the grid to figure out the base and height for each rectangle or triangle each tick is 1 unit
for example, the largest rectangle in my drawing is 5x5 since there are 5 grid ticks along the width and height
I still don't understand.
Like I see what you mean, but i still don't know how to get the area.
that rectangle would have an area of L*W = 5*5 = 25, agreed?
So the one next to it would be 9?
Would the areas be 25, 9, 4, 4?
ok we already have this 5x5 piece |dw:1441691100105:dw|
what's the area of this piece? |dw:1441691117214:dw|
I got 9 for that one.
Because there was 3 grid ticks
I see that it's a 2x3 rectangle, try again |dw:1441691253886:dw|
ok how about this rectangle? |dw:1441691305662:dw|
Was I right for the other two?
I got 4 for that one.
nope it's not 4
Is it just 2?
And the other one is 2 also?
fill out the drawing with the other areas you got
Were we just doing the rectangles?
we also need to do the triangles too
the ones I'm crossing out are the ones that are incorrect |dw:1441691610965:dw|
