Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ190

The figure below is not drawn to scale. Find the area of the coloured region.

 

Solution:

                        The figure is formed by two overlapping triangles with same base length but different height

                        The area of the coloured region can be determine by substracting the area of the two triangles

                        The area of the coloured region = ½ × 13 × 21 – ½ × 9 × 13 = 78 cm2

                        Or,

                        The area can be determine by the different in height of the two triangles

                        The different in heights = 12 cm

                        The area of the coloured region = ½ × 13 × 12 = 78 cm2
