What is a square minus two triangles?

No, it's not this super adorable bunny

It's the question you posted!

As you see, your question is just a 10 x 10 square minus two right triagles! (which, may I tell you, is the exact *inverse* of a bunny! about inverse functions, though it is not needed at all to solve this problem)

Anyways, we now need to solve or the area of the two triangles **and **the area of the 10 x 10 square.

**10 x 10 square:**

This is simple. It literally says "10 by 10". Which means, we multiply 10 *by 10*. See, sometimes english is so literal that it makes life easier.

10 x 10 = 100

**Two triangles:**

What do two triangles make? Here is a list of answers:

- full grilled cheese

- a diamond

- an abstract house

- a skateboard ramp

- a pair of *super fasionable *high heels

You see, the list is endless. But, the answer *we *are looking for is **"a rectangle". **(See? I've bolded it for your conveniance)

So, how does that simplify anything? Well, instead of dividing by 2, we can just multiply **base x height**. Easy :P

Base x Height = 5 x 2 <------ got 2 by (10 - 6)/2

= 10

Anddd.... we've got the answer! Or have we....yet...

All we need to do is subtract (or add, if you want a cute pet bunny, but that won't help in this case)

100 - 10 = **?**

Or, are you too lazy to solve all those **very simple** steps that I solved in less than a minute? Then....what should you do? Well, here is a tip:

*" For those who are too lazy to solve 100 - 10, this is for you. Instead of doing math to solve a math problem, go to your nearest Pet Co. shop and buy a bunny. Then, find a way to 'inverse' it's ears. There, you got a demented bunny AND a solved math problem. 2 in 1 package! "*

hopefully, you don't follow that tip, and HAVE ENOUGH energy to solve 100 - 10, so that you could save the life of a poor bunny. like the one shown above.
