Two 7 x 7 squares overlap to form a 10 x 7 rectangle, as shown. What is the total area of the two regions in which the two squares do not overlap? This question can be answered without introducing a variable, however, you must introduce a variable and show a full solution properly using the variable.
I know how to do this without the variable, but I’m having trouble adding one.
Thanks for the help!
How can this be? If they overlap to form a 10 x 7 ? this is larger than the dimension of the squares.....the most they can overlap is 7
