Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ327

What is the area of the orange triangle in the figure shown below?

Solution:

The height of the orange triangle = 24cm

The base of the orange triangle = 13 – 6 = 7cm

The area of the orange triangle = 24 × 7 ÷ 2 = 84cm2

Alternative Solution:

The area of the figure (rectangle) = 24 × 13 = 312cm2

The area of white triangle = half of the rectangle = 312 ÷ 2 = 156cm2

The orangle triangle and the white triangle have the same height = 24cm

The areas of the triangles are proportion to the ratio of the base length

The base length of the orange triangle = 13 – 6 = 7cm

The ratio of base length of orangle triangle to base length of white triangle = 13 : 7

13 units = 156

1 unit = 12cm2

The area of the orange triangle = 7 × 12 = 84cm2
