Am I supposed to take the queare and strike it to make a square and a rectangle and thefind the area of the sqare and the area of the rectangle by

Area of Square = 4*3= 12

Area of Rectangle is = 9*14= 9*14 = 126

and then take there areas

so first

126+12 = 138

then divided 138 by 1/2 right =

and then I get my answer????

We can how many square feet/Area of this quaderatiearal by breaking it down into smaller shapes we can can solve for the area by breaking it into two shapes actuallywhen the main rectangle pushes up we can cut that one off and find the area for it first

Little Rectangle

\(4 * 3 = 12\)

Are current area is twelve now

Now we can move on to the bigger rectangle

bigger rectangle

\(6 * 14 = 84\)

and

\(12 + 84 = 96\)

So are total area is 96 Square Feet
