Olding Areas of Compound Figures
Method : Divide the given figure into rectangles or squares and then find the arexs.
The floor of a recreation room has the shark shown in the figure
'The figure shows that you can think of the as being formed by two
rectangles. The area of the is then found by adding the areas the E
The area of rectangle A = 7m x 6m = 42
The smaller rectangle B measures 3 m by 4 m. Its area = 3m x 4m = 12m2.
The area of the floor = 42m: + 12m2 54 rn2.
