Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ465

In the figure below, the ratio of the area of the rectangle to the area of the triangle is 3 : 5. 25% of the rectangle overlaps with the triangle. The area of the rectangle is 552 cm2. Fine the total area of the uncoloured parts of the figure.

UPQ465-1

 

Solution:

            The area of the rectangle is 552 cm2

            The ratio of the area of the rectangle to the area of the triangle is 3 : 5

UPQ465-2

            3 units = 552

            1 unit = 184 cm2

            The area of the triangle = 5 × 184 = 920 cm2

            25% of the rectangle is overlapped

            The area overlapped = 552 × 25% = 138 cm2

            The area of the uncoloured region = 552 – 138 + 920 – 138 = 1196 cm2

Alternative Solution:

            The area of the rectangle is 552 cm2

            The ratio of the area of the rectangle to the area of the triangle is 3 : 5

            25% of the rectangle is overlapped

            This means ¼ of the rectangle is overlapped

UPQ465-2

            By subdivide 1 unit to 4 sub-units

UPQ465-3            12 sub-units = 552

            1 sub-unit = 46 cm2

            3 sub-units for rectangle overlapped

            The total unoverlaped sub-units = 32 – 6 = 26

            The total area of the uncoloured region = 26 × 46 = 1196 cm2
