*The diagram below consists of a small square, four equilateral triangles, and a large square. Find the area of the large square.*

At the base of the triangles, extend the line on over to the right side of the square.

That line is 2 & ^{1}/_{2} triangle bases long. The base of each triangle is one unit.

So the width of the large square is 2 & ^{1}/_{2} units.

Two and a half squared is six and a quarter. The area of the large square is **6.25 units ^{2}**.
