What is the area of the square on the left ???

What is the area of the triangle on the right??? [hint : base = 3, height = 5]

Close....remember that the area of the triangle = (1/2) (3 *5)

Also...you need to calculate the area of the square on the left

Okay well um 15/ 1/2= 7.5

so 7.5 but I am not sure about the left square base....

The triangle right as you say: \(\frac{3\times5}{2}=7.5\)

How you find the area of square? Do you remember the type?

Remember, Nickolas....the area of a square = (side)^2

Calculate this.....(you got the triangle part correct....)

Add the two answers together to get the final answer....

Is the square 5*5=10

then

10/2=5

+

15/ 1/2= 7.5

so 7.5+5=12.5 is my answer

I belive this is right.....

Oh my gosh I see my mistake I am so sorry Cphill stuff dosent sink in that face I have problems with these facts but I can assure you I know multiplucation

No

area doghouse = (area triangle) + (area square)

area doghouse = (\(\frac{1}{2}\times\)base \(\times\)height ) + (side)^2

area doghouse = (\(\frac{1}{2}\times3\times5\)) + \((5)^2\)

area doghouse = \((\frac{15}{2})\) + \((25)\)

area doghouse = \(7.5+25\)

area doghouse = \(32.5\) square feet

Corect answer the 1st.If you don't understand something tell me or you can send me in message.

I hope I help you.

I solve it step by step we told him its (side)^2 side=5 and he told 5^2 = 12.5...

Be more polite and also I talk with him in p.m.

After all instead my answer and all this answers of CPhill what will suggested you as an answer?

What I suggest is you continue to help him solve it –**not** do it for him.

Would you have learned math if someone always did the problems for you?

You are right ** but** we try with 6 answers to help him.I solve it because mabe understand the consept of the exercise for this reason I write tit like this Area = area1 + area2 and if understand the consepm will understand and the operations.

I was student and I have students I know how it is.

Have a nice day/night.

Yes, you and CPhill gave him six replies and he made **progress** at every step. He was learning how to do this. Nickolas is none too bright, but he’s not a retardo. The kid wants to learn. In his final attempt, he used the formula for the area of a right triangle on the square. If you pointed this out, he would have solved it himself. Along with a sense of accomplishment, he’d likely remember the difference.

Find the area of each shape, then add them up.

Area of square=5\(\cdot\)5

Area of right triangle=5\(\cdot\)3 /2

Figure that out

5*5=25

5*3=15

15/2=7.5

so

7.5+25=32.5

Wow I cant Belive thanks curiousdude for laying that out and thanks everyone else for laying it out to but I think curiousdude really made clear of it and Cphill becasue he was going step by step.....

Thanks Dimitristhym for your private tutoring and offering time to help me!

Thankyou all!
