did you try breaking it up into rectangles and triangles?

Looking for something else?

Yes, I was trying to break it up into triangles, and I've determined that there's four but I wasn't sure.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
here is one way
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright, that helps a lot more.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do we have to find the area of all of them now?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes, then add up the individual areas
anonymous
  • anonymous
Without numbers on the shape, how do I solve for the area?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
use the grid to figure out the base and height for each rectangle or triangle each tick is 1 unit
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
for example, the largest rectangle in my drawing is 5x5 since there are 5 grid ticks along the width and height
anonymous
  • anonymous
I still don't understand.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Like I see what you mean, but i still don't know how to get the area.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that rectangle would have an area of L*W = 5*5 = 25, agreed?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So the one next to it would be 9?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Would the areas be 25, 9, 4, 4?

jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok we already have this 5x5 piece |dw:1441691100105:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what's the area of this piece? |dw:1441691117214:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got 9 for that one.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because there was 3 grid ticks
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
I see that it's a 2x3 rectangle, try again |dw:1441691253886:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
So, 6?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
Alright. :)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok how about this rectangle? |dw:1441691305662:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
Was I right for the other two?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I got 4 for that one.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
nope it's not 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is it just 2?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
And the other one is 2 also?

jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
fill out the drawing with the other areas you got
anonymous
  • anonymous
Were we just doing the rectangles?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
we also need to do the triangles too
