Jordan is cutting a 2m by 1 1/4m piece of rectangular paper into two pieces along its diagonal.

**Find the area of each of the pieces.**

*What I think I have to do is find the area of the rectanglular piece of paper (which is 5/2). After that I think you have to divide the area by two to find one of the half of the paper he cuts (which is 5/4.*
