Laura's yard is in the shape a square and a half circle 17m by 17m what is the approcimate area
So the total area would be equivalent to...
Area of the square + (Half)The area of the circle
We could translate that to...
(17 m)*(17 m) + (1/2)(pi*(17 m)^2)
Just solve that (use correct units) and you'll be fine.
It's shaped like this:
This means the area is the area of the a 17x17 square plus half the area of a circle with diameter Θ=17.
Therefore the area of the square is 17^2 = 289
The area of the circle is π(8.5)^2 = 226.98, which divided by 2 is 113.49
The overall area is 289 + 113.49 = 402.49
