The area of the right isosceles triangle is given by × base ×height. Here the base and height are equal to 14 inches.

Therefore the area of each right isosceles triangular supporter is

A = (14 × 14)/2

A = 98 sq. in

Each shelf would require two such supporters and there are 4 such shelves. Thus the total number of supporters required is 8.

Square inches of wood necessary for 8 right isosceles triangular supporters = 98 × 8 = 784 square inches.

Question 5.

Michael wants to place grass on the sides of his lap pool. Find the area of the shaded regions that he wants to cover with grass.

________ yd^{2}

Answer: 204 yd^{2}

Explanation:

The area of the shaded region can be found by finding the total area and subtracting the area of the lap pool.

Total area = Area of the trapezium = 1/2 × (Sum of parallel sides) × distance between them

Sum of parallel sides = 25 yd + (3 + 12) = 40 yd

Distance between them = 12 yd

Total area = 1/2 × 40 × 12 = 240 yd²

Find the area of the lap pool.

Area = length × width = 12 × 3 = 36 yd²

Find the area of the shaded region

Area to be covered with grass = 240 – 36 = 204 yd²

Answer: 36

Explanation:

Original area: A = 5 × 3 = 15 sq. in

new dimensions:

l = 6 × 5 = 30 in

w = 6 × 3 = 18 in

New Area = l × w

A = 30 in × 18 in

A = 540 sq. in

Thus new area = 540 sq. in

new area/original area = 540/15 = 36

Thus the area was multiplied by 36.

Question 4.

Mario traced this trapezoid. Then he cut it out and arranged the trapezoids to form a rectangle. What is the area of the rectangle?

________ in.^{2}

Answer: 112

Explanation:

b1 = 10 in

b2 = 4 in

h = 8 in

We know that

Area of trapezoid = (b1 + b2)h/2

A = (10 in + 4 in)8 in/2

A = 14 in × 4 in

A = 56 sq. in

Thus the area of the trapezoid for the above figure is 56 sq. in

Question 11.

Which expressions can be used to find the area of the trapezoid? Mark all that apply.

Options:

a. \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (5 + 2) × 4.5

b. \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (2 + 4.5) × 5

c. \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (5 + 4.5) × 2

d. \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (6.5) × 5

Answer: \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (2 + 4.5) × 5

Explanation:

b1 = 4.5 in

b2 = 2

h = 5 in

We know that,

Area of trapezoid = (b1 + b2)h/2

A = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × (2 + 4.5) × 5

Thus the correct answer is option B.

Question 12.

Name the polygon and find its area. Show your work.

Type below:

_______________

Answer: 31 sq. in.

Explanation:

b = 5 in

h = 6.2 in

The area of the triangle is bh/2

A = (5 × 6.2)/2

A = 31/2

A = 15.5 sq. in

There are 2 triangles.

To find the area of the regular polygon we have to multiply the area of the triangle and number of triangles.

A = 15.5 × 2 = 31

Question 16.

Alex wants to enlarge a 4-ft by 6-ft vegetable garden by multiplying the dimensions of the garden by 2.

Part A

Find each area.

Area of original garden : ________ ft^{2}

Area of enlarged garden : ________ ft^{2}

Answer:

B = 4 ft

Area of original garden = 4 ft × 6 ft

A = 24 sq. ft

Now multiply 2 to base and width

b = 4 × 2 = 8 ft

w = 6 × 2 = 12 ft

Area of original garden = bw

A = 8 ft × 12 ft

A = 96 sq. ft

Question 18.

Look at the figure below. The area of the parallelogram and the areas of the two congruent triangles formed by a diagonal are related. If you know the area of the parallelogram, how can you find the area of one of the triangles?

Type below:

_______________

Answer:

Each of the diagonals of a parallelogram divides it into two congruent triangles, as we saw when we proved properties like that the opposite sides are equal to each other or that the two pairs of opposite angles are congruent. Since those two triangles are congruent, their areas are equal.

We also saw that the diagonals of the parallelogram bisect each other, and so create two additional pairs of congruent triangles.

When comparing the ratio of areas of triangles, we often look for an equal base or an equal height.
