How To Find The Area Of An Unusual Shape

1. 1. How to find the Area of this unusual shape 45 55 22 20
2. 2. This shape is actually 2 rectangles 45 55 22 20
3. 3. So we need to find the area of each rectangle 45 55 22 20
4. 4. The blue rectangle is 45 wide by ? long 45 55 22 20 ? Remember that rectangles have the two opposites sides equal.
5. 5. We to have find out ? 45 55 22 20 ? So that is 55 - 20 35 - the width of the blue rectangle.
6. 6. So the Area of the blue rectangle is 45 X 35 which is: 45 55 22 20 1575
7. 7. So now we only have to find out the Area of the pink rectangle and add it to the blue rectangle 45 55 22 20 1575
8. 8. We know the pink rectangle is 22 long by 20 wide so all we have to do is multiply the two numbers. 45 55 22 20 X = 440 1575
9. 9. So now we have the Area of both rectangles and we need to add them together 1575 440
10. 10. So the Area of our unusual shape is 45 55 22 20 1575 440 + = 2015
