15? Becasue 3*5=15

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   CPhill  Jun 5, 2019

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....    Jun 5, 2019

Is the square 5*5=10

then

10/2=5

+

15/ 1/2= 7.5

I belive this is right.....

5 + 5  = 10

5 * 5  = 25   CPhill  Jun 5, 2019

12.5+7.5 = 20

Is this right

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 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.

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!
