@fortytherapper Do you see the picture ?
it isnt there
Okay. I will try again.
Number 6 right?
So at first you divide the shape into two shapes to make it easier. The top a rectangle and the botttom a triangle
then you get the are of the rectangle and them the triangle
I did that... but I don't think I did it correctly...
I like what you did with the rectangle, that's good. When you got to the triangle part, you missed just one step
Oh. What step did I miss ?
rectangle=90 ft^2 triangle=180 ft^2
I got both of those answers for the rectangle and triangle...
you forgot to subtract 6 from 24 to find the triangle and then input to formula
When you did the base, you put 15 * 24, right? That 24 was for the total length (The triangle and rectangle), you just needed the triangle
so total=225 C)
I'm confused on the part with the 24 and 6....
ou know your getting the are for only the triangle
Oh. I didn't know that...
Oh for that, so you just wanted the triangle right? The 24 is both the rectangle and the triangle, as the 6 is just the rectangle Triangle and rectangle - rectangle = triangle
So... 24-6 ?
Yep, that will get you the triangle 24-6= triangle's height
So then you use that height for the triangle, and do the same steps you showed
Oh. I get it now. Thank you. :)
