### Re: area

And I really need help with this :

18. What is the area of this polygon?

ls_XF    =    53 mm    ls_XV=    72 mm    ls_VR=    16 mm
ls_FB    =    31 mm    ls_BT    =    31 mm    ls_EU    =    47 mm
ls_UL    =    31 mm    ls_TL    =    88 mm    ls_DE=    16 mm
ls_RM=    70 mm    ls_MC=    21 mm    ls_DC=    70 mm

A- 8014 mm2
B- 7030 mm2
C- 6027 mm2
D- 5478 mm2
E- 1782 mm2
F- 1225 mm2

### Re: area

hi zee-f

For the first, I cannot see what answer you chose.

Did you work out the width first ?

For Q18, start by making a drawing on paper.  It doesn't have to be accurate, just make it look roughly like the given drawing.

Then mark on all the distances.

Split the shape into rectangles.  There's more than one way of doing this step.  I've shown one way on my diagram.

Using the length and width* for each rectangle, write down its area.

Add them up and you're done.

* You might have to do some adding or subtracting to work out the distances you need.

### Re: area

Well it looks to me like RMCD is a rectangle, so RD = MC.

Then VE = VR + RD + DE

Or XVEF is a rectangle so VE = XF.

Try both ways and check they give the same answer.

And FE = XV

Or BE = TL - EU then FE = FB + BE

Hope that covers everything you need.

### Re: area

ok So I got :

xvef= 3816

bult= 2728

RMCD= 1470

3816 + 2728 + 1470 = 8014 mm2
