Connect to Vocabulary A composite figure is a figure made up of simple geometric shapes.

Question 1.
The figure shown gives the dimensions of a city park. What is the area of the city park? A. What different shapes could the figure be divided into?
Rectangle, trapezium.

Explanation:
The figure can be divided into different shapes Rectangle and trapezium.

B. There are several ways to divide the figure. The figure is divided into two quadrilaterals with a horizontal line. What are the two quadrilaterals?  C. Find the area of the top shape. The area of the trapezium is 4 km2

Explanation:
Given,
The given figure is a trapezium
The area of the trapezium is A = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × ( a + b) × h
a = 2 km b = 2 km and h = 2 km
A = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 2 × (2 + 2)
A = 4 km2

D. Find the area of the bottom shape.
A = × = km2
Given,
The figure is rectangle
l = 9 km and b = 2 km
Area of the rectangle is l × b
Area = 2 × 9
Area = 18 km2 .

E. Total area = Area of top shape + Area of bottom shape
= km2 + km2
= km2
The area of the park is ___________ square kilometers.
22 km2.

Explanation:
Area of the top shape = 4 km2
The area of the bottom shape is 18 km2.
Total area = Area of top shape + Area of the bottom shape
Total area = 18 km2 + 4 km2
Area = 22 km2

Area of the bottom rectangle is 14 × 4
Area = 56 m2.

F. Total area = Area of triangle + Area of top rectangle + Area of bottom rectangle
= m2 + 2 + m2 = m2
Area = 96 m2

Explanation:
Area of the triangle is 16 m2.
Area of the top rectangle is 24 m2.
The area of the bottom rectangle is 56 m2.
Total area = Area of triangle + Area of top rectangle + Area of bottom rectangle
Area = 16 + 24 +56
Area = 96 m2

Explanation:
The given figure has two rectangles and one triangle
First, calculate the area of the first rectangle
l = 8 cm and width = 5 cm
Area = 8 × 5 = 40 square cm
Next, calculate the area of another rectangle
l = 8 cm and width = 5 cm
Area = 8 × g = 40 square cm
Last calculate the area of the triangle = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × b × h
base = 5 cm and height = 8cm
Area = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ × 5 × 8
Area = 20 square cm
The total area of the figure is 40 + 40 + 20 = 100 square cm.
