Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I assume that all the angles marked with squares are right angles so you have 2 rectangles: dw:1443809856474:dw can you see how I got that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is 27+27+72?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes the squares are right angles so do i multiply all the "rectangles" and then add them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The area of a rectangle  I'm sure you know how to get that so subtract the small rectangle from the large one to get the answer (BTW @Future_Einstein  I think you are confusing the perimeter with th area)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the answer isn't 126 then ill delete my profile.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so do i add or subract?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So find the area of the 2 rectangles and subtract the smaller from the larger OR you go with @Future_Einstein dw:1443810144627:dw find £ rectangles and add them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are both right  the answer will be th esame whichever way you do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we both are technically but i find my aproach a lot easier. it is ultimately up to you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooooh ya i get how you explain it mathstudent55 and also how you do it future einstein

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One way is to find the area of the large rectangle, 12 m by 15 m, and subtract the area of the small, crosshatched rectangle, 6 m by 9 m.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is not 'technically'  we are both right period. In my case you find 2 areas, in yours you find 3  but I agree that either way is perfectly valid.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another way is to break up the figure into 3 rectangle shown below: dw:1443810228909:dw
