Break it up into rectangles and triangles then find the area of each individually, then sum them :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

^What he said.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you have to break it into squares and triangles. then, yes sum it up like what malevolence19 said.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

or just count them :) i know that'll work this time... not like that other question frinking other question

OpenStudy (anonymous):

remember that the Area of a square is s^2. and the area of a triangle is (1/2)(base)(height)

OpenStudy (bbb911):

is it 7?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I'm not getting 7...

OpenStudy (anonymous):

There are 7 figures total though, 3 triangles and 4 squares. What's the area of each square, and what's the area of each triangle?

OpenStudy (bbb911):

is it 5.5?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I'm sorry it's not 7. try it again. the area of a triangle is different than the area of a square. ****area of a triangle is half the area of a square in this problem.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

How are you getting 5.5?

OpenStudy (bbb911):

i know its 6

OpenStudy (anonymous):

6? You just said 5.5

OpenStudy (bbb911):

i meant 6 :3

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you should have meant 5.5

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I just wanted to see if you were guessing or if you knew how to do it. 5.5 is the right answer. I just wanted to see how you got it.

OpenStudy (bbb911):

yay :D

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so how did you get 5.5
