Find the area of the triangle, at the top of the figure.
base x height  = area of a triangle 2 3(4)  = area of triangle {substituted base and height into area formula} 2 = 6 {simplified} Find the area of the rectangle, at the bottom of the figure. length x width = area of a rectangle 5(4) = area of rectangle {substituted length and width into area formula} = 20 {multiplied} Add the area of the triangle with the area of the rectangle. 6 + 20 = 26 B.) 26 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
